Founded on the banks of the Sungei Canal in early post War Singapore, the company first relied on sale of refurbished small tools and hardware. Selling then was primarily to tradesmen seeking personal tools at the walk-in shop.
As the Singapore economy industrialised, the company expanded by setting up a second outlet at Syed Alwi Road, from which she eventually moved to her first owned 4-storey building at Jalan Besar in the mid 1970s. The company next expansion was to set foot on the heart of Singapore’s largest industrial estate, Jurong. This Jurong premises housed sales, warehouse, technical and after-sales departments. In doing so, the company trained her focus on customers’ growing sophistication and became the early proponent of After-sales support.
Our desire in providing Best Value ensures that our drive towards meeting
customers' changing needs shall never end.
While Singapore was riding on the Industrial boom, Sing Huat was quick to realize the strong co-relation between Singapore and her Northern neighbour Malaysia. The company invested into building her largest self-contained branch at Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital. By the 1980s, the second branch was established at Johor Bahru, the Southern Malaysian state of Johor; followed by the opening of the Penang office in the North of the Malaysian peninsular.
Together with the implementation of real-time computer linkage between branches, the company became truly local to customers’ needs, as well as provides improved response. This also meant, that multi-national customers could enjoy seamless support throughout the entire Malaysian archipelago. The company aspires to be the top choice for customers and strive to raise the service bar and setting standards.
