UMW roots began in 1917 as a auto repair shop in Orchard Road, Singapore. The business which was known then as United Motor Works quickly bloomed, making it the go-to place for auto repairs. Not long after, it managed to procure the distributorship for automotive parts under General Motors, a household name in the automotive industry in America.
In 1927 the rapidly expanding business was consolidated into an establishment called United Motor Works Pte Ltd - a predecessor of the UMW Group you see today.
Now, UMW Holdings Berhad is one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Malaysia. As one of the leading industry players in the Automotive, Equipment, and Manufacturing & Engineering sectors, we are a public-listed organisation with a reach that extends to Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, China and India.
Our journey towards a sustainable future comes hand in hand with the practice of inspiring vibrant ideas, through nurturing untapped potential, via rewarding partnerships and by maintaining a high level of quality across all our chosen industries.
