How It Started?

In 1969, Mr. Tong Hoe Soon, the founder of the company started his career as a van salesman in Bousted Trading. Not long thereafter, with great vision & high enthusiasm, the young entrepreneur started his 1st company, namely Merison Enterprise, operating from home. A few years on, Merison Enterprise was appointed the distributor for Gillette (M) Sdn Bhd, stockist for Kao Trading, jobber for Beecham (FE) Sdn Bhd and Johnson & Johnson.

Throughout the years, with his vision to conquer the retail market in Melaka, Mr. Tong has managed to secure the distributorship for many products of major multinational FMCG companies and expand his network of distribution. For example, In 1990, Merison (M) Sdn Bhd was appointed the distributor for Dumex, Summit (M) Sdn. Bhd., Texchem Trading & key wholesaler for Eveready (M) Sdn Bhd. In 1987, the relationship with P&G was started when Merison Marketing Sdn. Bhd. was appointed as P&G jobber with 1 exclusive salesman to cover Melaka & Muar (North Johor).

Merison continues to develop aggressively throughout the years with many consolidations and new partnerships were setup playing in the FMCG industry in Southern region of Malaysia.
