About The Company
Our Berjayapak Story
Berjayapak Sdn Bhd began in 1984 as a family business. It is the family that started the business
and it is also the family culture that makes many of its employees stay on year after year.
The business operated out of Penang island until they ran out of space as making pallets, crates and boxes needed ample space not just for timber but also finished goods. They relocated to Bukit Tengah’s furniture industrial estate but even Bukit Tengah proved too small for them. As a result of a growing demand for wood pallets and boxes, they decided to invest in a plot of land to build their own factory in Sungai Bakap in 1997. In fact, Berjayapak was the first business to venture into the Sungai Bakap area to develop their factory.
The Early Days
Pioneer founder, Ooi Chang Seaw, fondly known as CS, who sits on the Board of Directors until today, said he decided to go into the wood packaging business when he was still running his sundry goods business. Back then, he was supplying essential items to factories in the Bayan Lepas Free Trade Zone.

CS recalled, “There was a spike in demand for wooden boxes and crates in the 1980s. We started making these products for rubber sheet manufacturers who needed these boxes to transport rubber sheets.” Initially, the business was named Syarikat Perusahaan Berjaya.
Empowered To Grow
It is the family that started the business and it is also the family culture that makes many of its employees stay on year after year. The culture of taking care of one another as a family and being empowered to find spaces to thrive and succeed even as the company keeps reinventing itself decade after decade has made Berjayapak an exciting company to work for.
