Made In Singapore: 7 local heritage businesses that have withstood the test of time

Music business Swee Lee started off in 1946 as a supplier of brass and woodwind instruments to the British military band, before diversifying into selling guitars and drums in the 1950s.

In 2012, the company was acquired by Kuok Meng Ru, the son of palm oil billionaire Kuok Khoon Hong. Under Kuok’s leadership, the business has evolved into Asia’s largest music retailer, with stores in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, as well as an e-commerce platform. Its offerings have also expanded to include everything from headphones, audio equipment, bags, shoes and more.
