The Singapore office, which had
grown to be the headquarters of our regional business network, changed
its name to Chin Leong (CLP) Corporation Pte Ltd and adopted a new
corporate logo in 1990 to signify the multi-directional scope of our
products and services.
As we celebrated the 50th Golden

We remained alert to opportunities
for the profitable diversification of our business, with the
establishment of the Leather Chemicals business unit in 1992 and the

company, CLP International Pte Ltd, to act as an intermediate holding

evolve, the next era of growth promises to be no less daunting than the
