Established in 1923 in Penang, DKSH is one of the oldest and largest Market Expansion Services providers in Malaysia. DKSH Malaysia’s history extends back to 1867, when three enterprising managers left the Borneo Company Ltd. to start up on their own. Pooling their experience and expertise, Samuel Gilfillan, William Adamson, and H.W Wood set up Gilfillan, Wood & Co. in Singapore. In 1886, Archie Charles Harper arrived in Selangor as its first European trader. He set up A.C. Harper & Co., initially to import horse fodder.
Harpers Trading (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. was incorporated in December, 1974, as the trading arm of the Harper Gilfillan Group. Harper Gilifillan later sold its interests in Malaysia, including Harpers Trading (Malaysia), which was purchased by Diethelm Keller (now known as DKSH Malaysia Sdn Bhd) in 1987. In December 1994, the company was publicly listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.
Following the merger and the effective creation of DKSH in 2002, DKSH Malaysia has by means of acquisitions and organic growth strategies established itself as a diversified, strong and innovative partner of choice in the fields of consumer goods, healthcare, performance materials and technology.
