Our history dates back to the mid-1990s, when our Managing Director, Huang Sha established Wellcall Hose (M) Sdn Bhd (343730-A) (“WHSB”) to engage in the business of manufacturing rubber hose for customers who are mainly in the business of distributing rubber hose to OEM manufacturers and manufacturers. We were then principally involved in the manufacture and sale of air and water hose, oil hose and welding hose. In the initial period, our marketing efforts were focused in Europe, USA and Canada.

Within a few years of commencement of our business, we started to manufacture a wider range of rubber hose as a result of increasing enquiries for our products from existing and new customers from overseas.

In 2002, as a result of our research and development (“R&D”) initiatives to improve quality and to develop a more diversified range of products, we ventured into the production of food and beverage hose, chemical hose and steam hose. The production of food and beverage hose in 2003 is a significant milestone for us as we were able to meet the requirements set by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States of America for the food and beverage hose.

Since 2002, we have continued our expansionary efforts by building up customer base locally and overseas, namely Middle East, Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Russia, Africa and South America and gained recognition in the rubber hose and tubing industry internationally for product reliability and quality. Due to the rapid expansion of our business over the last 5 years, we have invested and upgraded our plant and machinery to cater to increased volume and to meet demands for higher quality products.

Further, in our efforts to maintain our focus on producing high quality rubber hose, our R&D centre is equipped with research equipment to conduct R&D on rubber hose. Our emphasis on R&D of improved products and to develop a more diversified range of products has enabled us to stay ahead of our local competitors and those from the ASEAN region and to compete with established rubber hose manufacturers located in Europe, Australia, India and USA. Currently, we sell to customers in most continents in the world, covering a total of 60 countries.

Our subsidiary, WHSB, was awarded the ISO9001:2000 certification by SGS in November 2003. This certification was granted for our manufacturing and development of industrial rubber hose and is a testament to our QC standards.
