United Engineers Limited (“UEL” or the “Company”, and together with its group of subsidiaries, the “Group”), founded in 1912, is one of Singapore’s pioneer companies that played an integral role in the physical and economic transformation of Singapore. Building on its early engineering roots, the Group evolved into a dynamic corporation with key businesses in property services and environmental engineering today.
The Group has developed numerous iconic buildings that define the Singapore landscape including orchardgateway, UE BizHub CITY (formerly known as UE Square), UE BizHub EAST, as well as the mixed-use development at one-north comprising The Rochester, Rochester Mall and Park Avenue Rochester. The Group also owns Changi Link, Rochester Mall, The Seletar Mall and UE Square Shopping Mall as well as manages the Park Avenue chain of hotels and serviced suites.
In 2013, the Group acquired a stake in another centennial company WBL Corporation Limited (“WBL”). Following this acquisition, the Group’s businesses now include Distribution, Manufacturing and Technology.
The Group was honoured as the 11th oldest company in the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce and its flagship building, UE BizHub CITY, was marked a historic site in 2002 by the Singapore National Heritage Board. In 2014, the Group was awarded the BCI Asia Top 10 Developers Award by BCI Asia.
