Milestones

Over 50 years of success built on knowledge, passion and people excellence.

The guiding philosophy of SLS’ growth over the years can be traced to Founder, Mr Tan Tiong Seng’s steadfast principles.

“As long as a businessman has integrity, always acts within his means and is not driven only by profits, he stands the highest chance of succeeding, be it in good or bad times. A company that helps others to succeed will also achieve success.”
