Fostering Strength in Diversity
The C P Group is the culmination of years of hard work and success starting from Chew Piau Construction Sdn. Bhd., which was listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange of Malaysia as Chew Piau Berhad in 1991.
During this period, Dato’ Tan made his mark by successfully completing major projects including residential, government and corporate buildings, hotel, country clubs, financial institutions, educational and sports facilities.
Some signature projects include the construction of the Grand National Friday Mosque in the Maldives and the Tanjong Jara Beach Hotel Resort in Malaysia, both of which were awarded the prestigious “Aga Khan” award for excellence in construction.
Growing From Strength to Strength
Since Dato’ Tan relinquished his stake in Chew Piau Berhad, the Group has grown from strength to strength. As of today, Dato’ Tan still continues to be the driving force behind the Group’s many achievements.
The successful one–of–a–kind RM2.5 billion intergrated Queensbay waterfront city project in Penang, Malaysia is the current ‘feather in the cap’ for the Group and an example of the vision, ambition and strength of Dato’ Tan.
This project also captures the true personification of Dato’ Tan, which is to be a responsible corporate citizen, contributing to the nation by creating businesses and employment opportunities through his multitude of projects.
The Queensbay project in particular and its impact on socio-economic growth in the region led to the official recognition by the Government in the form of the bestowment of various state and national honours.
A firm believer in the power and importance of knowledge and education, Dato’ Tan is a key supporter of the “Wawasan Education Foundation” and sits on the Board of Directors of Chung Kwok Chinese School in Kuala Lumpur and the Tun Sardon Foundation in Penang. Through his significant direct financial contributions and time spent with these various foundations, Dato’ Tan hopes to realise his dream of helping to create knowledgeable and successful individuals as part of his contribution to the world.
