As a company committed to our people, we take pleasure in welcoming new members into our teams as they begin their journey with us.

Brendon Ong joined our Singapore site (LISPL) in February this year as a Process Engineer. We spoke about his role and got to know some more about him…

What attracted you to working for us?

“During the interview for the job, the interviewing team seemed close-knit which was a really big plus to me. They were passionate about their jobs and seemed to enjoy every bit of it.”

What does a typical day in your role involve?

“Catching up on trial data from the night shift, looking through trends to determine next steps, making sure every section of the plant is running smoothly and that operating conditions are within the desired range. There is also the occasional risk assessment that comes about whenever new things are to be done.”

What do you enjoy most about your work?

“The challenge of solving problems and the satisfaction of things working out. Also, having interesting conversations with the folks on site.”

How would you describe the environment/culture here?

“Friendly, familial and supportive. There are enough people that you can interact with them all frequently. Using an analogy, it feels like a small town.”

What is your passion outside of work?

“I enjoy playing tennis on weekends with friends and I often play again with family. Aside from that, I also play the piano, guitar and drums. I started learning how to play piano at two years old and, since then, music has been a big part of my life.”

If you could switch places with one person for a day, who would it be and why?

“Roger Federer. He’s an amazing tennis player and I would love to find out how he got so good. Also, playing in the finals at a Grand Slam would be an amazing experience.”

Describe working for Lucite International in three words…
