Our Journey: The Essence of Speco
In 2017, while leading Spic & Span's cleaning crew, our founder, Benjamin Chua, was struck by the visible damage that harsh chemicals had inflicted on the hands of elderly workers. This observation wasn't fleeting; it cemented Speco's foundational vision.
Innovation with Intent:
Spic & Span was renowned in the cleaning sector, yet we aspired for greater heights. Our research journey led to our inaugural R&D breakthrough in 2019: Speco, a “special coating” designed to self-clean surfaces, dramatically reducing the need for manual labor and harsh chemicals. Predominantly utilized in nursing homes and preschools, Speco became indispensable in combating antibiotic-
resistant bacteria and the hand, foot, and mouth disease. By 2020, our transition was complete—from a cleaning service to pioneering eco-friendly hygiene solutions—and we were honored with the Intellectual Property Award by the Intellectual Property of Singapore (IPOS).
