Kuan & Ho Sdn Bhd founded in 1966 by two enterprising young men K.K. Kuan and Y. C. Ho began as a partnership company dealing in office equipment. K.K. Kuan was on his own after the tragic loss of his partner in 1972.
The company has grown from strength to strength, expanding into a marketing and distribution company dealing in a wide range of office-related products and equipment, both for commercial and personal users. It has also successfully established a network of dealers effectively serving the customers nationwide. Besides the main office, it has its branches set up in Kuala Lumpur and Penang too.
The visionary strategies, entrepreneurial foresight and effective management have put the Company on the right track for further expansion and won the trust and confidence of both the customers and principal business partners of the Company.
