This Christmas, AETOS partnered with Care Community Services Society (CCSS) and Community Chest to bring smiles and festive joy to schoolchildren from low-income and/or single parent families via their inaugural event – ‘Project Bake Smiles’.
Through this three-part fundraising and engagement event, AETOS volunteers grew closer with the children and collectively raised a total of $10,000 for the beneficiary - which will go towards defraying the cost of education for the children, including paying for their school uniforms, textbooks, and school fees.
Over the month of December, AETOS organised a few excursions for the children - the first of which was a fun-filled experience where they got a hands-on opportunity to bake their very own Christmas gingerbread cookies at OUE Downtown Gallery. This was soon followed by another excitement-packed event where the children and volunteers went on a ‘Super Race’ at SuperPark Singapore; a 40,000 sq. ft indoor playground that houses a wide range of games and activities suitable for all ages.
“Everyone should have a chance to enjoy themselves this festive season, regardless of their background. We hope that this small gesture from AETOS will go a long way in uplifting the lives of the children and bring genuine smiles to their faces this Christmas,” said Ms Elaine Ong, Assistant Vice President of Corporate Communications and Service Quality.

AETOS Holdings has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with COSEM Safety & Security Services to offer Singapore’s first integrated safety and security consultancy services. This partnership extends to the provision of customised WSQ training packages for frontline personnel in both safety and security operations.
Through this partnership, AETOS and COSEM will collaborate on three key areas:
1. Provide joint Safety & Security consultancy services both locally and abroad,
2. Develop customised WSQ training packages that equip frontline personnel with both safety and security competencies, and
3. Establish a common framework and guidelines for trained personnel to adhere to during crises and emergencies.
Said Mr. Alfred Fox, Chief Executive Officer of AETOS, “We are pleased to embark on this strategic collaboration with COSEM. Their capabilities in safety will take AETOS’ integrated services to another level, complementing both our proven security track record and best-in-class managed services capabilities from our parent company, Surbana Jurong. By leveraging this collective expertise, AETOS can now unlock greater value for our clients through an expanded suite of integrated service offerings consisting of safety, security, and facilities management, among others. Backed by best-in-class technology partners, we see this as the future for integrated value-creation.”
Said Mr. Ng Chee Kiang, Chief Executive Officer of COSEM Safety & Security Services, “We are looking forward to this partnership, which leverages the strengths of COSEM and AETOS in a collective manner. Apart from cost-saving benefits for our clients, we strongly believe that this partnership will help raise our clients’ overall state of emergency readiness and response from a safety and security perspective.”
Working closely with COSEM, AETOS is set on becoming the first integrated service provider to offer end-to-end fire safety inspections, enforcement and monitoring services. These services will not be solely manpower-based, but also focused on cost-effective systems-level enterprise solutions which will help reduce manpower and bring added value to their clients and partners.
“AETOS and COSEM are committed to equipping our people with the relevant skillsets. While innovative technologies are often harnessed to achieve greater productivity, we believe that our people ultimately make the critical difference in our operations. By broadening their expertise, knowledge, and real-time decision-making in safety, security, and facilities management, we enable our clients to better achieve their desired business outcomes,” added Mr. Fox and Mr. Ng.
AETOS and COSEM will co-develop the training programme by Q1 2020.

Spirits were high today at Jurong Lake Gardens as the AETOS senior management team, corporate employees, and trainees alike volunteered at Jurong Lake Gardens to help keep the area litter-free.
As part of a renewed focus on corporate social responsibility, this project is one of several geared towards environmental protection. Under this new initiative, in partnership with the National Parks Board, volunteers from across AETOS will come together once a month to help ensure the cleanliness of the park.
In a brief speech to the assembled volunteers, Mr Alfred Fox, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, said, “At the heart of volunteering lies a sense of civic-mindedness and the desire to give back to society. We want our people to internalize these values and uphold them during the course of their work each day. This is #AETOS Strong – when our efforts towards safety and security go beyond our clients and responsibilities, and are extended towards the communities we live in as well.”
AETOS strongly believes that reducing our environmental impact is important to the continued effectiveness and sustainability of our business.
