Established in 2010, Poh Group Pte Ltd (“Poh Group” or the “Group”) is founded by Singaporean businessman Mr Poh Kay Ping. Through a combination of strategic partnerships and joint ventures, Poh Group has grown from its humble beginnings into a dynamic group of 13 companies involved in diverse industries across key developing and emerging markets throughout Asia. The two key areas of focus for Poh Group are Resources and Engineering.
Poh Group is one of only a handful of Singapore companies to invest in the mineral resource industry in Mongolia, which has been named by the Economist Intelligence Unit as one of 2013’s top performing economies in the world1. The Group’s mineral resource investments in Mongolia are held mainly under ASX listed Tian Poh Resources Limited (ASX: TPO) and its subsidiary Poh Golden Ger Resources (“PGGR”). The assets total 125,000 hectares and include nine mineral exploration licences for Coal and Copper and two mining licences. One mining license concession, the Nuurst Coal Resource, has a JORC compliant resource of 478 million tons of coal. These assets are located mainly in the south and southwest of Mongolia in close proximity to the Chinese border, giving PGGR easy access to China, one of the largest consumers of copper and coal.
Apart from Mongolia, Poh Group has also invested in a 512 km2 gold mine concession in Cambodia. This investment is already holding a lot of promise with very positive initial discovery of Gold sediments and encouraging auger samplings results by Australian Geologists. The concessions are surrounded by several known gold deposits controlled by some listed companies in Australia and Canada.
Poh Group has grown its engineering business segment through establishing successful strategic alliances with very large China state-owned companies, including a joint venture named Wengfu International Pte Ltd that was formed together with Wengfu Group Ltd, one of the largest state-owned phosphate companies in China and in the world, with the most advanced and integrated phosphate fertiliser production facilities. The joint venture was involved in the successful completion of a US$430 million Phosphate Beneficiation Plant’s Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In addition, Poh Group’s other business activities include aquaculture in China; power generation in Mongolia, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Cambodia; residential and industrial property development in Singapore; and, IT product distribution in Bhutan.
