Corporate History

Corporate

From a humble start up with only 8 employees to becoming one of the largest bedroom set manufacturers in Malaysia with more than 1,000 employees, it took more than 40 years for our founder Mr Tan Kwee Chai to build LY Furniture to its current status. Along the way, Mr Tan Kwee Chai has also successfully nurtured numerous subcontractors to be successful furniture parts suppliers. We always ensure these subcontractors could work with us seamlessly in order to ensure the best quality and prompt delivery to all our customers.

To date, LY Furniture has been well recognized as one of the best wooden bedroom set manufacturers in the region and has been regarded as a benchmark for the industry.
