Roche in Malaysia
Roche’s presence in Malaysia began in the Fifties when the sales and distribution of its products were handled by a distributor, namely DKSH (M) Sdn. Bhd.
Roche Singapore and Malaysia was established in 1962 as a single company. A very small sales team was set up under DKSH’s supervision. On 11 May 1983, Roche (Pharmaceuticals) Sdn. Bhd. changed its name to Roche (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
In March 1988, Roche Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland separated the operations of Malaysia from Singapore and became an independent subsidiary reporting directly to the Head Office.
Today, Roche (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. is exclusively dedicated to the pharmaceuticals business and has since grown into one of the leading healthcare companies in Malaysia.
The Roche Operations in Malaysia are separated into two legal entities – Roche (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. and Roche Diagnostics (M) Sdn. Bhd.
In addition to its operations in Malaysia, Roche (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. is also responsible for operations in Myanmar.
