Sharing personal achievement

I read with much surprise and pleasure your December 2008 issue, which covered Chemical Engineering’s 2008 Personal Achievement Awards. The nomination is very meaningful for me coming from people in my team, and the selection is truly humbling. However, I wish to say that the efforts put in to improve the performance and protect the environment, and the record performances of the companies come as a result of team work. Most of the actual modification work has been done by the dedicated personnel in the two companies, namely See Sen Chemical Bhd and Malay-Sino Chemical Industries Sdn Bhd. Both are companies with histories spanning 30 years. But both companies have been breaking records every year for the past few years due to the tireless efforts of their dedicated technical personnel. Most of the improvements are from application of basic good engineering practice, like going back to basics, while also looking after the environment. This has really yielded dividends for the company. I see my selection for the award more as a recognition of all the effort put in by all the dedicated personnel in these two companies. There is much more for us to achieve.
