Putting the fun into playgrounds

Semec Enterprise, set up in 1984 by his father, 64-year-old Cheang Lin Thiam, is no household name. But having provided playground equipment solutions for parks, schools, condominiums, childcare centres and homes, most people would have encountered at least one of Semec’s projects.

The company, which started off manufacturing and supplying sports and fitness equipment, ventured into playground equipment solutions in the early 1990s, with its biggest clients today being the town councils and the National Parks Board.
