JTC Corporation (Abbreviation: JTC; Chinese: 裕廊集团; pinyin: Yùláng Jítuán), formerly the Jurong Town Corporation, is Singapore's principal developer and manager of industrial estates and their related facilities.[citation needed]

History[edit]

JTC was established on June 1, 1968 to develop industrial estates. Within three years, it managed to change existing mangrove swamplands into the Jurong Industrial Estate, consisting of industrial sites, residential areas and parks.[1]

Some of its landmark projects include the Jurong Rock Caverns,[2] wafer fabrication parks, business parks, Biopolis and Fusionopolis at one-north, a chemicals hub on Jurong Island, biomedical parks as well as logistics hubs for various industries.

Projects[edit]

  • The Jurong Rock Caverns look to subterranean depths to optimise land use.[3]
  • Seletar Aerospace Park and Tukang Innovation Park
  • CleanTech Park, Singapore's first eco-business park
  • Jurong Island Version 2.0 initiative plans to cut carbon emissions and enhance competitiveness of the chemicals hub.
