Samling Global Limited

The Presence

Samling Global Limited is a global integrated forest resource and wood products company with strategically located operations worldwide. Established in 1963 and headquartered in Sarawak, it has more than 13,000 dedicated employees across its international footprint.  

Samling Global Limited

The Group’s core business lies in the management of forest resource and manufacturing of wood products. Its integrated business covers the entire timber supply chain, from the management and harvesting of forest resources to transportation, processing, manufacturing, sales and distribution of wood products globally. Other significant businesses within the Group include oil palm plantations and a notable property development project in Kuala Lumpur.

Up to early 2013, there were three public listed companies under the Group, namely Samling Global Limited, Lingui Developments Berhad and Glenealy Plantations (Malaya) Berhad. Samling Global was listed in Hong Kong while Lingui Developments and Glenealy Plantations were listed on Bursa Malaysia. An extensive privatization exercise was undertaken in 2012-2013 with an objective to achieve more efficient and effective utilization of resources within the Group, and to allow an introduction of a structure that will facilitate the future growth of our businesses in the long run.

Continuous growth and renewal is the key to its sustenance. As a company in the natural resources sector, this philosophy drives Samling forward and is committed to implement sustainable practices for ensuring the future supply of our forest resources.
