Sometimes, we always taught that all those fancy and modern technologies are made by international companies. We often overlooked that many of the companies we rely on daily are Malaysian-made. Still can’t believe it?
We’ve listed three major players in their own industry that have built brands into our local scene and also international level. Some of the services you’ve been using it for years but you might not even realise it.
1. The leading payment service provider in the ASEAN region – GHL System Berhad
The name might not be very familiar, but most probably you have been using their service almost every day!
GHL is one of the brands responsible for making sure the online transactions go through smoothly. Whether you’re paying for your online shopping or swiping your card for your dinner, GHL is the one who makes it possible for you.
Founded in 1994, GHL started the business because, during their earlier days, small merchants were not served by the traditional bank acquirers. Thus, GHL believes that going cashless is a critical component for small merchants to grow their business. So, they are on a mission to enable the small merchants to accept all types of payment schemes.
To date, their regional presence comprises more than 1,000 employees spread across Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, and Australia.
2. Sending parcels all over the world – EasyParcel
Since e-commerce booming, we need more options when it comes to logistics services. Luckily, EasyParcel was founded 5 years ago when the market demand was high.
EasyParcel offers e-commerce friendly solutions with a hassle-free registration process, an online ordering process that’s available 24/7 and full transparency with pricing. The reason why Msians comfortable in using this service is derived from the convenience of their services.
3. Providing stock images for consumers – 123RF
123RF is a common name you heard among graphic designers or works that require you to search for stock images. But, do you know that 123RF is hosted by a Msian team called Inmagine Group?
Inmagine Group was kickstarted 19 years ago as a startup. Today, the group owns and operates a number of companies under a creative ecosystem which is derived from content and data.
When they first started out in Malaysia, Inmagine Group spent time and effort to reach out to local photographers who were well-known in the local photography scene in supplying images for them.
Good job guys!
We have a number of homegrown brands that have grown from nobody to somebody. Who knows the products, services that you are using right now are actually produced by Msian companies. Be proud of our local products and services!
