I’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit our "About Us" page. You have probably noticed other websites usually use this page to list all their accomplishments and how they guarantee this and warranty that, etc… and we are no different in that respect, but we saved it for the end.
I wanted to use these few paragraphs to tell you "About Us" and share my story. My name is Jackson Chua, and I have been working in the hardware and machinery industry for more than 45 years. For me, this field is not just an industry, it’s a passion. It was my vision to invest my insight, time, and energy to fill the hydraulics supplies gap in the marine industry.
I started Chuan Kok in 1982. I had to say “It wasn’t easy at all!”. I began promoting myself in Singapore… with very little luck. It took a year before I landed a major contract supplying valves and fittings to Far East Levingston Shipbuilding (FELS). Far East Levingston has since been renamed Keppel Fels.
I remember having to provide very specific technical help and make suggestions on how to improve their systems. Far East Levingston Shipbuilding commented on my work ethic and was so grateful that I provided technical expertise and did such a great job.
Since then, my determination to succeed in this field has only increased. Over the years, I became the leading supplier of hydraulics components, providing professional advice and quality products. And there’s nothing else I – and my team – would rather do than this.

Our Vision, Purpose and Culture
Our Core Values:
We value passion, determination and the sense of urgency.
Passion and determination are contagious. We believe in having a positive and optimistic (but realistic) attitude about everything we do because we realize that this inspires others to have the same attitude and is the motivation that propels us and our company forward.
One of the effects of encouraging fun at work is that it encourages people to think out of the box. This ends up being a win-win for everyone: Team members are more engaged in the work that they do, and the company as a whole becomes more innovative.
Growth: Learn, Lead and Take Action
We believe that every team member possesses more potential than even the team member himself/herself is aware of. Our goal is to help team members unlock that potential. But it has to be a joint effort, which means you have to want to challenge yourself in order for it to happen.
And for anyone we bring on board, the best expertise they can bring is expertise at learning and adapting and figuring new things out. This helps the company grow, and in the process, they will also be growing themselves.
Family: We care, We share, We love
We encourage diversity in ideas, opinions, and viewpoints.
We believe the best team members take initiative, ownership and collaborate with other team members in their work especially at times of challenges. The best team members also spread positive influence and energy on everyone and strive to create harmony with each other.
We want to create an environment that is friendly, warm and exciting. We strive to be more than just a team with only co-worker relationships; we want to become a family where we care and believe in each other, work and play together.
Integrity: I am my word. I do what I say
Integrity is the essence of everything successful, long term. We believe in integrity and we create rules for how integrity is built into our work.
