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 of Textile Corporation of Malaya Limited. The company 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 6 June 2005, its name was further changed to GUH Holdings Berhad to reflect a common corporate identity.
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 1January 1990 in compliance with the Malaysian government’s policy.
GUH was originally engaged in the manufacturing and trading of cotton yarn and the only wholly-owned subsidiary, Malayan Weaving Mills Sdn. Bhd. (“MWM”), was engaged in weaving, dyeing, printing, garment manufacturing and retailing. GUH began to diversify into other activities in 1984, commencing with the acquisition of the entire issued and paid up capital of Bukit Ritan Realty Sdn. Bhd. which is now known as GUH Properties Sdn. Bhd., Grand Ocean Development Sdn. Bhd. and its group of companies and Mujur Seputeh Sdn. Bhd. and its subsidiary. These companies are principally engaged in property development. Currently, the development scheme is covered with a large mixed development project in Taman Bukit Kepayang in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.
GUH had implemented a restructuring scheme in 1994. It acquired 100% equity interest in a few companies, namely MC Industry Sdn. Bhd. which has then changed its name to GUH Electronic Holdings Sdn. Bhd. and its subsidiaries, which are principally involved in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards. Apart from the acquisition of the above mentioned businesses, 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. Subsequent to the acquisition of these groups of companies, 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 in becoming a conglomerate that maximizes the interest for its shareholders, employees, customers and community.
