of Companies is a Malaysian conglomerate with diverse
business interests from forest resource management to oil palm
plantation, property development and automotive business in
various countries globally. Established in 1963 and headquartered
in Sarawak, we have more than 20,000 dedicated employees across
our international footprint.
The Group’s core business is in the management of forest
resource and manufacturing of wood products. Our integrated
timber business covers the entire supply chain, from the
management and harvesting of forest resources to transportation,
processing, manufacturing and sales and distribution of wood
products in different regions around the world. Other significant
businesses within the Group include oil palm plantations and a
notable property development project in Kuala Lumpur.
Up to early 2013, there were three public listed companies
under the Group, namely Samling, Lingui Developments Berhad and
Glenealy Plantations (Malaya) Berhad. Samling was listed in Hong
Kong while Lingui Developments and Glenealy Plantations were
listed on Bursa Malaysia. A privatization exercise was undertaken
in 2012-2013 with the objective of achieving a more efficient and
effective utilization of resources within the Group, and will
allow for the introduction of a structure that will facilitate
the future growth of our businesses in the long run.
Today, there are three flagship companies in the Samling Group - Samling
Strategic Corporation Sdn Bhd (timber-based), Glenealy Plantations
Sdn Bhd (oil palm based) and Perdana ParkCity Sdn Bhd (property development)
Backed by a strong track record, the Group is forging ahead,
strengthening existing businesses while exploring new
opportunities to enhance its sustainability.
