Rocky Tan 1958 - 2018

30. November 2018 | Comments (2)

We have received the sad news that Rocky Tan general manager and director of Malaysian access equipment specialist Eastway Engineering, passed away on the 24th November, following a short illness. He was 60 years old.

Tan was a pioneer of the scaffold and powered access industry in Malaysia, having been in the business since the early 1980s, if not before, initially as the Hiway alloy scaffold tower dealer moving into powered access with Genie AWP models and then becoming a dealer for Nifty lift trailer and boom lifts, along with Denka atrium lifts. Eastway Engineering also runs a rental fleet in Malaysia, with Genie, Skyjack, Niftylift, Denka and JLG platforms, alongside its sales and service business and owns a distribution business in Singapore - Equipment Engineering.

He was a great advocate of improving safety when working at height and a was actively involved in the establishment of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) in Malaysia.

Those who knew him well say that he was always extremely kind, supportive and knowledgeable about the Malaysian market, a much more challenging market for powered access than nearby Singapore. “He was a fantastic person in every way and who will be greatly missed by his family, business friends and associates.”

RIP Rocky. You held my hand and guided me through the ins and outs of the Malaysia market since way back in 2000. Your insights and wonderful tales made the travel through KL's notorious traffic a breeze. May you find only the best Durians in heaven!
