Our humble beginnings started with Mr Lim Boon Qian who started the business working as a one man operation in wood salvage and wooden box manufacturing along Church Street. Through hardwork and a commitment towards customer service, the seeds of a successful company were sown.
Mr Lim Thiam Tee assumed the business from his father on 1938 and the business was extended to 4 sites in Singapore; Synagogue Street, Church Street, Palmer Road and Havelock Road. The business started to expand into the provision of wooden pallets and boxes for Singapore’s budding manufacturing industries in the 1960s.
In 1961 the infamous Bukit Ho Swee Fire severely damaged the sites at Havelock Road and Palmer Road. With steadfast resilience, the company recovered from the tragedy and grew from strength to strength. The company expanded by establishing another manufacturing base in Malaysia. It also consolidated its Singapore manufacturing sites to its current premise at Sungei Kadut.
By the mid 1970s, Yat Guan Pte Ltd has become one of the first manufacturers in Singapore to begin providing pallets to major manufacturers in both Singapore and Malaysia, with ventures into Indonesia and beyond.
Currently, the company is under the helm of Mr Lim Er Lin. We have modernized and extended the capabilities of our Malaysia factories to include automated timber processing and stringent quality control systems. By maintaining focus on continuous improvement in productivity and quality control, we have become one of the leading companies in the market.
Yat Guan Pte Ltd also recognizes its role in protecting the environment both in Singapore and Malaysia. Thus we have been growing and developing our pallet recycling and wood salvage operations. We encourage businesses to consider using recycled wooden or plastic pallets to reduce their carbon footprint.
Being able to have design, manufacturing and delivery under one roof gives our customers the assurance that their pallets and boxes needs are well taken care of. Also, by having complete ownership of our manufacturing facility we can guarantee confidence in product quality and continuity of supply.
