Five 25-Year Milestones Celebrated
Thursday, October 22, 2015
Jessie Ang began her career as a Confidential Secretary in MDS. Her good performance later led to a promotion to Executive Secretary. Her can-do attitude enabled her to learn and take on new duties and responsibilities and broadened her job scope. This allowed her to move seamlessly into a Human Resource Development role, while retaining her existing job scope. This was further widened to a regional portfolio.

Hong Kim Kion joined MDS in September 1990 as a general worker and was quickly promoted to Trainee Service Technician in the same year. Through hard work and perseverance, he was promoted to Technician and later, to Senior Technician in 1996. His efforts were recognised once again with a promotion to Supervisor, leading a team of technicians, in 1999. He has since grown to become a well-recognised and trusted team leader who is able to get even the most challenging tasks done.

Soo Chia Yong (more affectionately known as Ah Yong) originally started in MDS as a Service Technician before transferring to Production as a mechanic. Ah Yong also was part of the pioneering team and is still very much involved in MHE-Demag’s explosion proof projects. To put it in perspective, Ah Yong has worked on most, if not all, the explosion proof cranes since 2007. Although his role is in Production, Ah Yong is happy to provide customer support outside of the factory too. He has worked at customer sites in Batam and Jurong Island. He was also involved in training sub-contractors in wheel alignment at their factory in Senai, Johor.
Cindy Chan joined Jebsen & Jessen Engineering, Malaysia as a stenographer on September 15, 1990, reporting to T.P Chia. Two years later, on March 1, 1992, Ms Chan was transferred to JJ-Lurgi Engineering as secretary to T.P Chia, when the joint venture was formed. She was subsequently promoted to Sales Administration Executive in 2000 and was reporting to Mr. Jakob Helms when he joined the Group. With the formation of the Technology Regional Business Unit, Ms Chan was transferred to Jebsen & Jessen Technology on January 1, 2004. She has been managing the welfare and organisation of the division flawlessly and immaculately ever since. She is a pleasant, approachable, loyal and a dedicated person.
Maliki M could be called “the man who fixes it all” as he has been in the service department since he joined the company. He was a technician for HAKO Cleaning Supplies when he first started his career with PT Katrolin in 1990. He has remained faithful and loyal through the company’s changes and finally, in 1998, when MHE-Demag was officially established, he became the technician for material handling equipment. Subsequently, he was promoted to Senior Technician in 2003. With his work excellence, he received another promotion in 2007, becoming Service Engineer. With his strong background and technical knowledge, the team believes he is easily one of the best Service Engineers in the Jakarta area.
