Caring, Serving and Co-creating for 70 Years and Beyond
The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) has grown and moved forward with Hong Kong for 70 years. In the aftermath of World War II, Hong Kong had to be rebuilt from ruins. At the time, the Public Works Department was responsible for the maintenance works of the Government’s infrastructure. In 1948, the Mechanical, Electrical, and Transport Offices under the Public Works Department merged to form the Electrical and Mechanical Office (EMO), the predecessor of EMSD. Work of the EMO covered engineering services for government departments and public organisations, safety monitoring of the E&M facilities through law enforcement and regulatory services. After the organisation restructuring in 1982, the EMO officially became today’s Electrical and Mechanical Services Department.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of EMSD. We will continue to serve from the heart and strive for excellence, optimising our E&M engineering services with new thinking and new technologies. We will work together with our clients and the trade to create and promote Hong Kong as a low-carbon smart city. Earlier on, the 70th anniversary logo and slogan selection, commemorative video production, and E&M Carnival were organised to kick-start our celebration for the anniversary. Very soon, we will launch a series of celebration activities, including the Root-seeking Journey, E&M Young Ambassadors annual meeting, E&M Young Ambassadors Job Shadow Day, the 70th Anniversary Ceremony cum Opening of Customer Service Centre, EMSD Symposium, etc. You are cordially invited to join us.
