Founder of Saga MJE Sendirian Berhad
CH Yeap first started working as a salesman in Singer Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. in the 1980s. He later left Singer Malaysia and joined McAlister and Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of United Engineers Singapore as their Sales & Project Representative in their Fire Protection Industry Department. However, due to the economic crisis in 1988, he was retrenched.
In 1989, CH Yeap decided to become an entrepreneur and started his own business. He registered his first company as Matra Jaya Engineering and that was shortened to MJE later when it was incorporated as a Sendirian Berhad or Private Limited Company in 1992.
CH Yeap’s first office in Penang was situated in Jalan Satu, Air Itam, a rather small place. At that time, he had hired 2 staffs and had a van for transport. His company was providing sales of fire equipment and accessories, service & maintenance to local factories in Penang. Due to the space constraint, he later decided to move his office to Jalan Kebun Ngor.
Due to the increase of many new companies in the Fire Protection Industry in Penang, CH Yeap felt that it was time to focus his energies and attention somewhere else. As many of his customers came from the East Coast, CH Yeap felt that his experience in this industry will greatly benefit the people and companies there. In 2008, he decided to move his company to Kota Bharu in Kelantan.
Through his foresight, the company has grown to what it is today. With his almost 30 years of experience, CH Yeap is still very passionate and enthusiastic of the Fire Protection Industry. He is always willing to share his knowledge in order to protect and save lives and properties.
