Who We Are

The Heng Lee Group was established in Penang, Malaysia in the 1930s. Building on the pioneering spirit of our founder Yeap Chor Ee, we have expanded on our roots in sugar, rice and general trading. Through the twentieth century, we broadened our scope of business through investments in rubber, tin, property, manufacturing of oil trading of rice and banking, which included the establishment of Ban Hin Lee Bank.

Today, the Group is focused on property development, heritage property rental and management, warehousing and educational philanthropy.

Throughout our history, the Heng Lee Group has sought to build strong business and social ties with local communities. Our commercial interests today continue to reflect our belief in contributing to economic growth through the development of these communities’ environment and in highlighting their cultural richness. The Group’s investment in education reflects our belief in laying the foundation of success through philanthropy with purpose.
