Manufacture of anti-personnel mines[edit]

Originally set up as a weapons supplier for the Singapore Armed Forces, ST Engineering is one of the few companies in the world that still manufactures anti-personnel land mines[4] and has been excluded from the Norway State Pension Fund, the New Zealand Superannuation Fund, and the Netherlands' ABP for the "production of weapons that through their normal use may violate fundamental humanitarian principles".[5]
