26 Years Of Long Journey

 
At Hong Ming Group, we believe that an obstacle is often a stepping stone. It is how our story began to unfold. A few decades ago, Mr. Lim Kien Huat, the founder of HM Group, left his hometown in Malaysia for the betterment of his life. He started up by selling cloth-based home products – ranging from towels to bed sheets and pillow cases – at a neighbourhood stall and night market (commonly known as “Pasar Malam”). Back then, life wasn’t easy. It was filled with obstacles, but Mr. Lim persisted with a steadfast fixity of purpose.
 
In November 1989, the first Hong Ming shop was set up, after decades of hard work and determination. It turned out to be a splendid start – Quickly, the shop gained popularity among the neighbourhood, and the opening of HM’s first branch in Ang Mo Kio marked the first expansion of the business.
 
The 90s was a coming-of-age for HM Group. In 1991, HM began to offer Singaporeans a greater variety of products, such as ready-made curtains and home décor products, while outlets in Bukit Batok and Sembawang Shopping Centre opened shortly after the inauguration of Ang Mo Kio branch. Mr. Lim’s pragmatic and diligent character had eventually brought us many opportunities and support.
 
At the turn of millennium, HM shifted its focus from finished household products to personalised services, in order to cater to the needs of consumers from across the island. At the same time, larger galleries were seen on display. The advent of larger showrooms, located at IMM, Tanjong Katong Complex and Plaza Singapura, was a clear demonstration of HM’s relentless pursuit of quality. The yesteryears night market has now ventured into the international arena.
 
Today, HM has expanded to a chain of 8 outlets. With our 26 years of experience, we provide a wide array of products which would improve your home experience, and our well-trained staff offer professional advices as regards home decoration. As we seek to strive for excellence and constant improvements, our belief has led us to becoming one of the leading manufacturers in the window fashion industry – just as how Mr. Lim turned obstacles into stepping stones at the time of difficulty.
