CEO’s Message

Portek has stayed as a leading provider of engineering services to global terminal operators, meeting new demands from shipping companies and cargo owners. We started off as port equipment engineering service providers, and now through our unique blend of engineering, IT and financial solutions, we are also niche operators of small to medium terminals around the world.

We continue to believe that ports are essential gateways to a country. Portek contributes to the improvement of regional living standards by providing access to the global economy. Thanks to our visionary founder, Mr. Larry Lam and our current Portek team, we have managed to deliver our knowledge and solutions to improve productivity in ports in developing nations – thus our ethos of Maximising Throughput and Accelerating Growth.

Now with Mitsui as Portek’s new parent, we are even better positioned to deliver value to all our customers and partners. Mitsui has over 140 years of history and has been dynamically changing its portfolio and pursuing businesses that range from products sales, global logistics chain management and financing to the development of major international infrastructure and natural resource projects. Mitsui’s extensive logistics network and solid financial backbone will be the key in unlocking even greater value for Portek’s partners.

I believe that Portek would not have had this opportunity to grow since its inception 3 decades ago, without the long-term relationships forged between our valued customers and partners. We maintain our pledge to deliver even greater value, through innovation and flexibility in adapting to our clients’ ever changing needs.
