We were one of the 78 delegates in 11 countries who participated in the 8th Symposium on Lift and Escalator Technologies, held in Hong Kong from 15 – 16th May 2018. It was a great opportunity for us to learn from the best engineering practices and technologies globally as well as sharing our experiences and opinions on how we can raise the lift & escalator industry standards that comprise both safety and traffic management including engineering design, equipment maintenance and passenger operation. We would like to thank the Lift & Escalator Symposium Committee and the host city for their efforts to organise the event.
An article of the symposium was also featured in the “Elevator World” magazine in August 2018, Page(s) 158-160.

Our company emphasizes on corporate social responsibility (CSR) beyond just daily business operations. We have our strong belief that we need to contribute back to our society such as giving students’ opportunities to gain exposure to the industry needs as such as possible.
With that in mind, instead of engaging professional designer to design our corporate logo, SPNG Consultants decided to give this corporate logo design opportunity to ITE College Central (Visual Communication Design) students. This would give the students an opportunity to show case their creativity and talent to design corporate logo for company branding. It also gave students an understanding of industry expectations to enhance their learning journey in school.
We would like to give special thanks to all the staff of ITE College Central for organizing the logo competition and to all students for their efforts to produce outstanding logo artworks. Lastly, we thanked the school for presenting a token of appreciation to us for the industry collaboration effort.
