A New Identity
The corporatisation and institutionalisation of the group of companies led to the emergence of the identity, ‘The Tecity Group of Companies’.
The rebuilding of Tan Chin Tuan Mansion was also completed in the same year. The Conservation House, which is part of the Tan Chin Tuan Mansion, is used as a hub for business and social events for Tan Chin Tuan Foundation and Tecity Group.
