Our Story

The Hong Leong Group’s journey began in 1963, the same year the nation of Malaysia was formed.

Our entrepreneurial journey traces the trajectory of Malaysia’s economic growth and industrialisation over the decades.

We started out as a building materials trading company, operating from a small shop lot in Kuala Lumpur. From there, our founders saw and seized opportunities, presented by a rapidly developing economy.

We went from trading to manufacturing building materials. Soon, we moved into other high-growth industries such as property development, banking, financial services and the other industries that we invested in along the way.

Our story is not merely the story of growth.

It is a story of entrepreneurial spirit meeting professionalism in how we approach business. We apply the same philosophy to how we approach the future and innovation.
