Singapore turns 53 on August 9th 2018! Galmon wishes all Singaporeans a Happy National Day.
This year, Galmon’s scissor lifts are doing their national duty and performing in the National Day Parade (NDP)!
In the opening segment of the performance, the scissor lifts were transformed into Housing & Development Board (HDB) blocks that celebrate the resilience of our nation builders from the past and present day Singapore.
Galmon’s scissor lifts also made a second appearance in a later segment celebrating Singapore’s multi-racial unity, sharing the stage with over 500 performers!
Months prior to the parade on August 9th, Galmon’s boom lifts were already busy with the construction of the NDP stage at The Floating Platform in Marina Bay which would hold some 3,000 performers!
In May, Galmon Academy also welcomed 30 Full-Time National Servicemen (NSFs) who attended the WSQ Operate Scissor Lift course and learnt how to operate the scissor lifts safely during the parade.
During the rehearsals in June to August, Galmon’s mechanics also worked closely with the Show Committee to perform maintenance checks on the scissor lifts, making sure that the performances go on without a hitch.
As a home-grown enterprise, Galmon is proud to do our part for the National Day celebrations.
