Through the years, we have transformed into a multi-industry regional business group.
It all began in 1899 when the Federal Stores (later renamed Cycle & Carriage) was set up as a sundries shop in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Selling everything from soap, screwdrivers to bicycles, and subsequently motor cars, the company expanded to Singapore in 1926, where it is still headquartered today.
Notwithstanding almost 120 years history including during times of adversity and conflicts, the company’s resilience was a case of deftly adapting to changes and holding fast to excellence, which remain its hallmark until this day.
