From making bold moves like migrating to Singapore from a small village in India with minimal adequacy in English, to building a start-up business with almost no capital to invest in, Ms Maya is a testament to show that tenacity and determination will never go out of style. Ms Maya’s journey to success was not straightforward, where her decade of working experience in a trading company and her mentor giving her guidance, as well as her father’s constant belief in her potential to succeed, gave her the confidence to take a leap of faith and set up her business. There were times where people discouraged her from entering and continued to do so once she entered, but that became Ms Maya’s driving force in persevering and proving that she could also be a key player in the industry. “When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, not your decision to get there” – is a famous quote by Zig Ziglar that Ms Maya strongly believed in and continues to do so as, She set the goal to become the first name that comes to mind when scaffolding works are mentioned, where she navigated through initial setbacks of suffering losses with interactions with clients and industry partners, and pushed her way into bigger markets, like the oil and petrochemical industry. Semblance of success started peeking when Ms Maya secured deals on Jurong Island and supported five main contractors with her team on the Jurong Aromatics Project (JAC). A&B Scaffolding gradually became one of the pioneering companies to work on scaffoldings for the petrochemical industry, which is demanding in nature in terms of additional safety protocols and design requirements. These ventures paved the path for her and the company to venture into the construction industry and secure deals over the past decades. Her determination to venture into both industries served as a platform for the company to gain a foothold in both industries. Ms Maya was also particularly proud of erecting a 104m tall scaffolding for JAC, which is one of the tallest boilers found on Jurong Island.
