Corporate Overview

- Since 1940 -

1940-1946
GUH Holdings Berhad is listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad under the Industrial Products sector. It was incorporated in the Federation of Malaya under the Companies Ordinances 1940-1946 on 1 March 1961 under the name Textile Corporation of Malaya Limited. The name was changed to Textile Corporation of Malaya Berhad when it became a public company on 30 October 1968. Subsequent to this, Grand United Holdings Berhad was adopted on 10 January 1985. On 16 June 2005, its name was further changed to GUH Holdings Berhad to reflect a common corporate identity.

1968
GUH was officially listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (“KLSE”) and the Stock Exchange of Singapore Limited (“SES”) on 17 December 1968. Consequent to the stock market crash resulting from the Pan-Electric Industries Limited crises in 1985, GUH requested for the suspension of trading on its shares on the KLSE and SES effective 5 December 1985. The Pan-Electric Industries Limited crisis had a significant impact on GUH as GUH was a substantial shareholder of Sigma Metal Co Ltd, which in turn was a substantial shareholder of Pan-Electric Industries Limited. GUH was subsequently de-listed from SES on 1 January 1990 in compliance with the Malaysian government’s policy.

1984
GUH was originally involved in the manufacturing and trading of cotton yarn with its only wholly-owned subsidiary Malayan Weaving Mills Sdn Bhd (“MWM”) engaged in weaving, dyeing, printing, garment manufacturing and retailing. GUH began to diversify into other activities in 1984, commencing with the acquisition of numerous companies principally engaged in property development.

In 1994, GUH implemented a restructuring scheme and acquired 100% equity interest in a few companies, namely MC Industry Sdn Bhd, which has since changed its name to GUH Electronic Holdings Sdn Bhd, and its subsidiaries that are principally involved in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards. GUH also acquired L.E.B Manufacturing Holding Bhd, now known as GUH Electrical Holdings Sdn Bhd, together with its subsidiaries which are involved in the marketing and trading of electrical goods and appliances.

GUH continues to explore and expand its business portfolio not only horizontally, but also aims to diversify into other businesses that will materialize its vision ofbecoming a conglomerate that maximizes the interest of its shareholders, employees, customers and the community.

Following this direction, GUH Properties continue its current undertaking on its mega mixed development of Taman Bukit Kepayang in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. Optimally located adjacent to the Seremban/Labu interchange of the North-South Highway, this well-planned integrated development comprises medium to high-end residential and commercial units. Good connectivity to major trunk roads are also assured while a plethora of amenities and shopping centres are within close proximity.

2014
In 2014, GUH bought over another two companies – Notable Empire Sdn Bhd and Million Crest (M) Sdn Bhd – now known as GUH Land Sdn Bhd and GUH Development Sdn Bhd respectively. They will undertake the master development of a 46-acre freehold land in Simpang Ampat, Penang. This exquisite self-contained township will consist of lifestyle shops, residential and commercial components.

Besides that, GUH has also successfully ventured into the water/wastewater industry through its wholly-owned subsidiary Teknoserv Engineering Sdn Bhd acquired since 2012. Teknoserv’s principal activity include but is not limited to the design and build, procurement, construction and commissioning of water/wastewater treatment plants and related ancillary projects.
