Name Inspiration: The name "SEAWARD" was inspired by personal friends of our founder; Mr Thomas Lim. Pastors Fred & Margaret Seaward were early missionaries from the USA to Southeast Asia in the 1950's. Over many years, they made significant contributions toward improving lives in developing and urban communities in the areas of spiritual support, education, discipleship & stewardship.
Following in their legacy, we want the SEAWARD name to continuing inspiring. Our business is based on principles of honesty, integrity and a pioneering spirit. SEAWARD's mandate therefore is to improve the lives of people, including care for the environment.
1980's: Humble Beginnings: From a small rental space in Middle Road from 1980-1990, the business expanded to occupy a location at North Bridge Road which placed it in the heart of Singapore's prime business district (CBD).
1990's - Early 2000's: Modernizing: Transitioning into the new millennia, Seaward had then grown in export reach and relocated into a growing business hub at the Tai Seng district in the northeast of Singapore. The district had been earmarked by the Singapore government in its ten-year Masterplan for high-value businesses, creative, and logistic services outside the CBD.
Early 2000's - Present: Equipping: Seaward's third party warehouse facilities & services operating at the eastern & western ends of Singapore are in close proximity to Changi International Airport & Jurong industrial zone respectively. With value-adding procurement, certification support, lab, & sales services, we build upon providing clients with greater experience in the Asia region and beyond. Our transition of leadership is now into the second generation and continues to build upon such a rich legacy.
OUR FOCUS: Be Singaporean, Be Seaward: Our motto reads: Reliability, Flexibility and Quality. We intentionally support start-ups & encourage entrepreneurs, on top of supporting local SMEs and MNCs because we believe in including anything or anyone regardless of size. SEAWARD's products hold numerous international & recognizable certifications that facilitate their use across different industries. We export thoroughly to ASEAN, China, India, Sri Lanka, the UK and the USA, and continue to broaden our horizons.
