“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.”
Being regarded as enterprising, assiduous and aspiring. Mr Chua Tian Teng 57, began working all kinds of odd jobs when he was a young teenager. With one dream in mind, that is to become a successful businessman, Mr Chua took on any hardship that came along. Since a young boy. Mr Chua took every learning process as an opportunity to gain more experience. He has always been observing how different business operations are run and managed.
With all his savings, Mr Chua founded T.T Chua Construction Pte Ltd in 1989. Due to their limitations in manpower and equipment then, the company could only tender for small projects. Mr Chua would personally lead his team to the completion of every single project whenever they are being granted any projects. The increasing number of projects being granted to the company determined the signs of success that they had achieved. In no time, the business expanded into building construction, earthwork and civil engineering. The main business operation is still to transport materials such as sand, soil and voluminous items. Today, Mr Chua runs an Office at Clementi Street with approximately 44 staff working under his wing. Under his guidance, his employees have developed independence and competency in their scope of work. Although, in 1996, financial economic downturn resulted in the company not having healthy revenues. They managed to tide over the tough period through teamwork and with the supports of their main contractors and suppliers.
“We need to have a strong foundation of management because it allows us to move forward at a greater pace when business opportunities comes by’, shares Mr Chua Tian Teng, when asked what he feels is an important strategy when it comes to running a business which has a history of more than two decades.”
He muses and says that the company has maintained a reputation for excellence unmatchable in the construction industry. In order to complete a project with a safety requirement of zero accidental cases at each project – the company has to carry out stringent checks on workers ensuring safety practics are conducted during any involvement of site works.
At the moment, Mr Chua has no plans for major diversification of the business yet. Being conferred the Top 100 Singapore Elite’s Enterprise Award, Mr Chua mentions that it is not a shelter’ for T.T Chua Construction Pte Ltd to stop and take a rest. He will continue to work extremely hard in maintaining the business models, allowing it to grow at a steady pace and to progress the business further.
