Together with SPETA (Singapore Precision Engineering and Technology Association), AAIS conducted a sharing session on Aerospace, focusing on requirements for entry into the sector. The event was well attended with more than 70 participants from both the AAIS and SPETAmemberships. Agencies such as SPRING Singapore and SIMTech were also present to support and encourage companies keen on venturing into the sector.

Precision Engineering (PE) in Singapore is recognised as the backbone of key industries for the economy such as aerospace, oil and gas, medical devices and electronics. The slow down in the oil & gas and marine sectors, coupled with growth in aviation and aerospace, has fuelled interest in local PE companies to diversify into Aerospace.

The event kicked off with welcome remarks from SPETA Executive Director, which was followed by an overview of Singapore’s aerospace industry presented by AAIS Chief Executive Sia Kheng Yok. AAIS Panel of Expert members Mr Tin Ho and Mr Mike Daniels, then shared their valuable insights on the topics “What it takes to be an Aerospace supplier” and “Aerospace quality and regulatory requirements” respectively. Participants also got to hear from Mr. Soh Chee Siong, Managing Director of AAIS member JEP Precision Engineering, who shared his first-hand experience of transforming the company with new technologies including digitisation and robotics. The afternoon was rounded off with networking between participants from the aerospace and PE industries.

AAIS is pleased to have co-organised this knowledge–sharing session with SPETA. We welcome more of such collaborations. Companies interested to know more about requirements for entry into the industry can contact AAIS at info_svc@aais.org.sg
