30 million dollars Tech Grant for cleaning solutions

Senior Minister Amy Khor launched a new grant yesterday for businesses to adopt technology tools for cleaning and waste management.

Companies can now use the money for tech equipment such as auto floor cleaners.

The grant is set to encourage business owners to adopt technology that will increase operation productivity. Such move is due to part of the efforts to make the industry manpower-lean.

Licensed companies with existing contracts in Singapore for licensed waste management, cleaning and building owners will be eligible for the grant. Which the company can receive up to 50% of the qualifying cost up to $250,000 per company.

This is also to help out the current challenges faced by cleaning sector as the average age of workers is 60. Thus, technology will make their jobs less challenging. For more info visit Straits Time.
