YCH Group unveils Supply Chain City

by Cheryl Tay

YCH Group has successfully broken ground for Supply Chain City™ (pictured), an upcoming "premier supply chain nerve centre" in Asia. The event, held on Friday, 7 December, was attended by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Tharman Shanmugaratnam.

Situated at Jurong West St 23, Supply Chain City™ features Fusionaris™, a first-of-its-kind combination of a Ramp-up Integrated Solution as well as an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS).

To be completed in 2014, the facility features half a million sq ft of office space and around 1.5 million sq ft of warehouse space, according to Robert Yap, Chairman and Chief Executive of YCH. It also has a 45m high ASRS and a five-floor ramp-up integrated solution.

Within close proximity to the Boon Lay (Jurong Point) and Lakeside MRT stations, Supply Chain City™ also integrates lifestyle and community-centric amenities in a single place.

They include function halls and exhibition galleries, as well as training and conference facilities. Supply Chain City™ will also provide lifestyle and F&B outlets, such as cafeterias and alfresco eateries, and feature separate office and logistics tower blocks with areas for community events, such as a central podium, a green rooftop and landscaped relaxation areas.

Notably, the project has been awarded with the Green Mark Gold Plus and USGBC LEED Gold certification.

"The development of Supply Chain City™ is a significant milestone in the 57 years of YCH Group's supply chain legacy. Our world-pioneering Fusionaris™ has been designed to create infinite possibilities for seeding innovative value-added solutions enabling agile, flexible and scalable supply chains that are today's competitive edge for leading world-class MNCs," added Yap.Cheryl Tay, Editor of CommericalGuru, wrote this story.
