United for Beirut

Calling all Ports and Friends – We answered the call from Beirut! You can too!

Integra has partnered with various Singapore friends to fill its first container on Monday 21st September; with much needed goods for babies, children and families in disaster struck Beirut. Hopefully the first of many deliveries from Singapore!

When our container arrives in Lebanon, it will be handed over locally to NGO partner NUSANED (https://www.nusaned.org).

They will ensure the contents get to the intended recipients, quickly (https://www.nusaned.org/en/our-programs/goods-in-need).

The contents, are what we all take for granted and can find in the supermarkets easily but not today in Beirut! Even if you had the money to pay for them.

Winter is coming and so many people still have limited and temporary shelters; their homes destroyed or damaged by the explosion. Schools are piles of rubble, as is everything else for miles around the port.

From one port city to another, from one group of people to another, this was a phone call for support that we were pleased to be able to answer.

A super big shout out to HAPAG Lloyd Shipping Co who are covering all the shipping costs and Thank you to our SFO friend Debbie Chien for pulling this together with their other Singapore friends.

For more info, check www.nusaned.org and maybe answer the call?

Singapore Office – Children’s Book and Toy Swap

With the stress of remote schooling, closed shops, and Integra staff working from home most of the time on rotation-Integra’s Singapore staff came up with the idea of operating an office children’s book and toy swap, that staff members can access during in office rotations as part of our essential services cover.

We will operate this at least during the month long “circuit breaker” period in Singapore, but might make it permanent as a good way of recycling and re using “preloved” items, adding the option to donate regularly to local charities.

It’s the little things in life these days….

ICIS Asian Butadiene Conference – Day 2

Day 2 of the ICIS Asian Butadiene & Derivatives Conference focused on the Chinese slowdown, ABS uncertainty and South America’s role in BD. Our CEO, Gina Fyffe sat on the final panel discussing: The Asian Butadiene market of the future. What will the next 5 years look like?.

Gina with 40 years of Olefins and BD experience had a pretty clear view on how this will pan out. One interesting topic was the discussion started by Gina on how Asian contract prices are settled on the basis of publications.

Removing the contracting parties from having a say in their profitability, instead basing it on a relatively small number of spot transactions. There was interest in the room on the European and US models of agreeing prices, but belief that Asian companies were not ready for this responsibility.

ICIS Asian Butadiene Conference – Day 1

Day 1 of the ICIS Asian Butadiene & Derivatives Conference was a great opportunity for Butadiene and related industry companies in Asia to meet and exchange opinions.

Our CEO, Gina Fyffe spoke on Asia’s role within global trade flows, the effect of feedstock changes, logistical challenges, economic uncertainties and new plant start-ups globally. The first day had lots of questions, and tomorrow will hopefully bring the same level of engagement!

Gina will be part of the final panel discussion: The Asian Butadiene market of the future. What will the next 5 years look like?”

University of Edinburgh – The Insights Programme

A group from Integra and the students spent some hours in the Integra office and over drinks earlier in the week, talking about life in Singapore, recruitment, social media profiles, interview techniques, CV’s, the benefits of degrees and an open mindset to post university.

How Gina went from being a Bio Science student in the medical school in Edinburgh, to founding a global multi billion dollar company over 30 years was also of course something of interest! The experience was energizing and fun for us, with so much enthusiasm and questions from the students- A motivated and smart bunch of people.
