In Singapore, cement tiles were both imported as well as manufactured locally, such as by the Tampenis Cement Tile Works located at Sungei Road, Rochor. In operation till the 1950s, in its heyday it produced 2,000 pieces daily and exported them to Malaya and Indonesia. Today, these heritage artefacts of the early 20th century can be admired in religious monuments such as the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, old St Joseph’s Institution, as well as the Rectory of the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd.
