WHO WE ARE

The Swiss Malaysian Business Association (SMBA), a non-profit making organization, was constituted in May 2000 to benefit Swiss or Malaysian companies or individuals having an interest to promote business between the two countries.

The close and fruitful business ties between Switzerland and Malaysia date back to 1887 and were spearheaded by the Swiss trading firm Diethelm & Co. Another well-known Swiss company, Nestlé, began its operations in Malaysia as the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company in Penang in 1912. In 1939 Zuellig Pharma established a subsidiary on the Peninsula as a step towards its regional expansion in Southeast Asia.

By now, over 80 companies with Swiss equity are operating in Malaysia such as Nestle, DKSH, Roche, ABB,  Zuellig Pharma and SR Technics, just to name a few.
