Continually looking for green “ no poison, organic” alternatives for other pest control needs and the introduction of TM7 the new generation of the Termimesh Ultra Marine Grade 725 stainless steel mesh that does not require the laborious termiparging installation thereby greatly improving and enhancing productivity in line with Singapore’s call for cleaner and more efficient use of labour and resources.
In Singapore, it is not expected that TM7 will fully replace TM2, we are still expecting great productivity gains with safer work.
IT ALL STARTED, when architect Cheng Wai Meng had a serious termite infestation in his house.
The PCO came and began dusting the termite infested skirtings and cupboard with a “reddish Powder” and informed him to restrict his son from touching the “red powder”, as “it will kill him”!!
“That cannot DO!” He could not accept all the poisonous solutions, including dusting and toxic chemical injection etc, given by the PCOs, especially when the termite infestation is in his son’s room.
“Was there any No Poison” solution to termite infestation problems?” Surely there must be?
He began conducting “a search to find” many other, no poison solution, but there was none to be found in Singapore.
He chanced upon a particular product featured in the Australian Architect’s Journal, that had been invented in Australia and was gaining wide support as it was a physical termite barrier, which meant it did not contain dangerous chemicals and, if this had been used in his home, his family would not be placed in this unavoidably dangerous situation.
The product he found was the Termimesh System.
Being an architect, he was very interested to bringing the Termimesh System into Singapore, as he could offer to the industry a cleaner and greener alternative to the poisonous chemicals that were commonly used at the time.
He sought comments from the then Ministry of the Environment, Environmental Health Department, on the possibility of it being used as an alternative to the traditional toxic chemical application. He provided all the available testing data and the evidence of the installations already carried out in Australia and the United States.
The then Ministry of the Environment provided their no objection on 22 August 1996.
In 1998, Cheng Wai Meng obtained the Exclusive Licence of the Termimesh System in Singapore. Later that year, he then registered the name Termi-mesh Singapore Pte Ltd.
Together with his wife, Lunar, Termi-mesh Singapore has now completed many installations of all types varying from bungalows to the new Changi International Airport Terminal 3 complex, the Resorts World Universal Studios and the Marine Life Park, placing itself in the market as the only choice for chemical free, stainless steel, sustainable, zero impact on the environment termite control system.
In September 2006, Mr. Teo Kok Woon of the Cockpit Hotel Group of Companies became the new major shareholder of the company.
Termi-mesh Singapore Pte Ltd aims to provide the Termimesh System as the only acceptable, stainless steel, sustainable, environmental standard for termite control in Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, South East Asia and the greater Asia.
