On 18 July 2014, Koyo International announced that it had secured a contract to supply and deliver around 170,000 metric tonnes of reclamation materials to a buyer for a period of two months till August 2014.

The company’s latest financial report card was released in February this year and covers the whole of 2013. In that year, Koyo International experienced a 69.2% increase in its top-line to S$15.1 million due to its ongoing mechanical engineering projects and a good showing from its facilities management segment.

As a result of the growth in revenue, Koyo International’s bottom-line had spiked from S$82,000 a year ago to S$972,000.
