About Us

Mr Ng Joo Soon, as founder and chairman of the Dovechem Group whose operations today span the Asia Pacific.

The Dovechem Group is a dynamic, fast-growing conglomerate with business interests in the chemical, packaging and engineering industries. Its operations of over 10 companies are spread throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The Group’s flagship company, Thiam Joo, started in 1960 as a humble paint retailer. But with the dare, vision, business savvy of founder-entrepreneur Ng Joo Soon and his diligent team, the company soon spread its wings into larger, more ambitious ventures, eventually spawning the Dovechem consortium.

Today, the group is a respected, established name in the trading of chemical solvents, production of resins and paints, manufacturing of steel containers, and marketing of highly-specialised engineering fastening systems.

At the core of its success is a viable corporate philosophy that has I stood the test of time: viz, an ethos that embraces honesty and reliability, commitment to excellence in customer service and a consistent emphasis on building goodwill with its business partners.

As it grows and changes to meet new challenges, Dovechem will remain dedicated to this creed.

The signboard and pillar-post (below) are reminders of Thiam Joo’s beginnings as a paint supplier in Bencoolen Street. The company has since grown into the multi-million dollar Dovechem Group with Singapore operations located at Tanjong Penjuru.

The Flight of the Dove Blessed with a stout body, powerful wings and an instinctively excellent sense of direction, the dove is an ambitious strong flier. Aspiration, vigour and tenacity - these same virtues are reflected by the Dovechem Group whose mascot and trademark is the ebullient dove.
