A proud history in Asia
The company’s history extends back to 1867, when three enterprising managers left the Borneo Company Ltd. to start up on their own. Pooling their experience and expertise, Samuel Gilfillan, William Adamson, and H.W Wood set up Gilfillan, Wood & Co. in Singapore. In 1886, Archie Charles Harper arrived in Selangor as its first European trader. He set up A.C. Harper & Co., initially to import horse fodder.
Sometime between 1930 and 1935, A.C Harper & Co. and Gilfillan merged to create the Harper Gilfillan Group, whose activities spread throughout Malaysia and Brunei.
Harpers Trading (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. was incorporated in December, 1974, as the trading arm of the Harper Gilfillan Group. Harper Gilifillan later sold its interests in Malaysia, including Harpers Trading (Malaysia), which was purchased by Diethelm (now known as DKSH Malaysia Sdn Bhd) in 1987.
