1989 – Our Humble Beginning
Yosogo Writing Instrument was founded by the two brothers Mr Teh Aik Chai and Mr Teh Eik Kee. They began to manufacture ball pens and markers on a small scale in Sungai Puyu, Butterworth with a floor area of about 2,600 sqf. There were only 7 workers including the directors. Yosogo Writing Instrument was founded by the two brothers Mr Teh Aik Chai and Mr Teh Eik Kee. They began to manufacture ball pens and markers in a small scale in Sungai Puyu, Butterworth with a floor area of about 2,600 sqf. There were only 7 workers including the directors. The ball pens were named “JOTJOYS” and the markers, “BEN HILL”. Back then, we have one Swiss-made ball pen refill and assembling the machine. The ball pen tips were from Switzerland, the inks are from Germany. As for markers, the inks and the reservoir are from Germany and the nibs are from Japan. We also manufactured letter opener pens for hotels and the name of hotels were printed exclusively for them. We supplied to more than 70% of hotels in Malaysia and Singapore.
We acquired two units of German Injection Machines and made moulds to plastic inject our very first marker pens under the brand name “YOSOGO”. We were one of the first two manufacturers in Malaysia who produced both permanent and whiteboard markers using alcohol-based ink unlike some markers in the market with xylene-based ink which is toxic and hazardous to health.
Encouraged by Malaysian government to do exports, we started to attend exhibitions around the world to promote Malaysian made quality products. This resulted in our expansion and moved to a bigger premise with a floor area of 7,200 sqf in Jalan Permatang Pauh, Butterworth. At the same year, we acquired another German Injection Machine.
We acquired another two injection machines from Taiwan to fulfil other plastic made products such as tape dispensers, lineal rules/rulers, colouring palettes, dry-wipe erasers, paper clip holders and French Curves, amongst others. We acquired another 7,200 sqf and expanded our floor area to 14,400sqf in order to cater to our expansion in production.
As export orders increased, our stock inventory also increased in tandem. We further leased 4 more adjacent units and the floor area increased to 28,800 sqf. By then, we have over 50 workers with us.
Our business further grew and we needed additional space for storage thus by then, the total floor area has expanded to 33,000 sqf.
We started a new production line for the presentation board.
We finally have our own factory in Mak Mandin Industrial Estate, Butterwoth, Penang, with a land area of 48,000 sqf where we are able to integrate manufacturing processes more efficiently.
