Established in 1992, Taiko Marketing Singapore Pte. Ltd. (TMS) was originally set-up to promote the sales of the Group's inorganic chemicals and supporting products in the Singapore market. It also handled the logistics coordination between the Group's manufacturing plants in Malaysia and customers in Singapore.
The Taiko name is synonymous with dynamic and sustainable growth, sound financial fundamentals, professional management and a strong commitment to quality and excellence.
The Group was founded by the late Tan Sri Dato' Seri Lee Loy Seng, thus sharing a common heritage with Batu Kawan Berhad and Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad, both listed on Bursa Malaysia and having businesses in Inorganic chemicals; plantations; oleochemical products; retails, cocoa processing, rubber gloves; wood parquet and property developments.
From a property based group, the Taiko Group has diversified its businesses into 6 business units or groups - namely Chemical Trading (Taiko Marketing); HDPE drum (Taiko HDPE Drum); Bleaching Clay (Taiko Clay); Property (Taiko Properties); Bituminous Products & Sporting facilities (Taiko Bituminious Products) and Aviation (Smooth Route). Besides involved in chemical trading, Taiko Marketing also manages the sales operation of the Inorganic Chemicals business of Batu Kawan Berhad.
Notwithstanding being separate entities, all the business units or groups are imbued with the culture and philosophy of our late founder, who was renowned for his dedication to fundamental business ethics such as hard work, honesty, teamwork and entrepreneurship. His legacy lives on today through his 3 sons, CEOs of the Business Groups and the rapid expanded number of employees.
These fundamentals have steered the Group through challenges and the Group's exceptional growth over the past 25 years is a testament to its success.
