About the Company:
ActiveCool has a client base of nearly 2000 companies, and a majority of those clients are made up of large corporations, government agencies and educational institutions, including Singapore’s largest, most sustainable brewer Asia Pacific Brewery, Changi Airport Group, MOE, MINDEF, IMDA, ICA, ASTAR, and Singapore’s six autonomous universities – NTU, NUS, SUSS, SUTD, SMU, SIT. Some of our best and longest client relationships are with SMEs, primarily in the construction, F&B and logistics industry. We have also expanded our channels to reach direct consumers via our online shops on marketplaces such as Lazada and Shopee. However, our revenue from ecommerce currently makes up a very small part of our revenue.
Understanding the importance of positioning ourselves as a competitive differentiator, and we realise that there is a big demand for customisable goods and services. Hence, at ActiveCool, we are able to provide customisation, down to composition of fabric/ material used, printing techniques – glitter printing, reflective printing, laser cut which are not widely available in the market due to cost and intricate workmanship skills.
We are able to provide this level of differentiation and customisation due to our investments in lab certified technology, R&D, and always keeping up to date with upcoming trends and demands from other markets. This has given us an edge over our competitors, especially to clients with very specific demands, and government tenders.
In 2020, we invented one of the best reusable masks in the market, with lab tested specifications, at affordable price points. As a result, we have been awarded period contracts in 2021 from the Ministry of Defence and Tan Tock Seng Hospital to be their sole supplier for reusable masks for 2-4 years. We have also supplied these masks for the 2021 NDP marching contingent.

Director - Amos Tan
Having gone through multiple ups and downs throughout my entrepreneurship journey, I was fortunate enough to have found a few good people and mentors around me to have trust in me and guide me through this journey. I learnt how to appreciate the relationships around me, be it with my friends, suppliers or customers.
In the process of my mentorship, I have found my passion. I realized to have a meaningful life may not be solely about making lots of profit and having lots of wealth, but rather it is about helping the people around you to learn and grow. Bringing out their passion and drive towards helping your company to grow, while giving them a sense of achievement. Create an impact in their lives and provide them the opportunity for their future growth.
I started building this culture within the company and constantly promoting the idea of helping out others when they are in need, contributing back to society. I aim to be the first class company within my industry.
