Community

A strong and resilient society is important for our sustained growth. We are committed to contributing to the development of diverse communities in which we operate, and where possible utilising our expertise in ways that would benefit lesser served segments of society. Active participation of our employees is an important feature of our community initiatives.

Community Fund Raising Programmes

ASMPT has been actively involved in a number of community fund raising programs through the years and has made significant donations to charitable organisations.  For instance, in Hong Kong, we support the Breakthrough “Walk Beyond Adversity” drive, the Sowers Action and Green Power amongst others with cash donations. In addition, we have been participating in Oxfam’s Trailwalker program since 2000, in terms of both financial sponsorship and sending our best teams to support the Trailwalker drive. For our active support and involvement, we were presented with awards such as the “Manufacturing Fundraising Champion of Oxfam Trailwalker 2013”, the “Best Company in the Manufacturing Field in Hong Kong of Oxfam Trailwalker 2006”, the “Best Company in the Manufacturing Field in Hong Kong of Oxfam Trailwalker 2005”, and the “Sowers Action Challenging 12 Hours 2012 Participation Award (Silver)”.  

 

In conjunction with our 40th anniversary, we presented a HK$300,000 cheque comprising donations from both company and staff to the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare in December 2015. In the United Kingdom, staff volunteers raised funds for local charity - Gully’s Place, and donated used iPads for Wyvern Academy, a purpose-built school in Weymouth for children and young people aged from 2 to 19 with special needs, including Autistic Spectrum Disorder. 

Blood Donation Drives

The Group has been actively supporting blood donation campaigns through the years. In conjunction with the Hong Kong Red Cross Society, ASMPT has been organising blood donation drives since 1991. Our Singapore office also works closely with the Singapore Red Cross Society to organise company-wide blood donation drives as well as collaborates with the Salvation Army to organise the collection of usable items.

Championing Education

We believe in the power of education to positively impact lives, and support initiatives that promote access to quality education. We host plant visits for students from engineering field in local universities and technical institutes in both Hong Kong and Singapore, providing them with insights into the hi-value and hi-tech manufacturing industry.

 

We also run internship programs for budding engineers as well as offer scholarship opportunities in countries of operations like in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Germany and the United Kingdom. Through these initiatives, we hope to play a part in nurturing tomorrow's leaders and inspiring smarter technology in the engineering profession. For instance, in conjunction with its 40th anniversary, ASMPT launched the ASM Technology Awards 2015 in Hong Kong to recognise and reward outstanding university students whose final-year projects demonstrated excellence in technology and innovation.

Staff Volunteerism

ASMPT encourages our people to take a more active role in our communities. We believe that active employee volunteerism not only helps the community but also fosters greater teamwork and camaraderie as we spend meaningful hours volunteering together.

 

In 2015, staff from our Hong Kong office actively participated in meaningful activities like Oxfam Trailwalker, UNICEF Charity Run, International Coastal Cleanup, rice dumpling making session with the disabled, Stanley Dragon Boat fun day and mooncake making session with the teens and organic rice sharing with the elderly.

 

In Malaysia, staff spent a full-filled day with the underprivileged children when they visited the Berkat Children’s home while some of our colleagues from Singapore spent a fun and meaningful morning at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve with the Lion Club Singapore and 160 beneficiaries. The Singapore office also took part in the “Race against Cancer” run.

 

In the United States, staff took part in Toys-for-Tots Drive, collecting toys for less fortunate children in the Memphis area.
