Mesiniaga was established in 17 December 1981 in response to Malaysia’s New Economic Policy (NEP) to increase local participation in the technology industry. At the time, the objective of the company’s establishment was to serve as IBM's sole hardware dealer and agent in Malaysia. Ismail Sulaiman, who was then the General Manager of IBM Malaysia together with 50 ex-IBM personnel became the first batch of Mesiniaga employees.
When we started, we were the sole agent and distributor for IBM office products. We have since evolved into a multi-platform systems integrator, partnering with many other globally renowned technology partners in order to provide a full range of IT hardware, software and services.
Mesiniaga was listed on KLSE Main Board (now known as Bursa Malaysia Main Market) on 17 November 1999 and have evolved into one of Malaysia’s leading ICT solutions providers and integrators. Our mission is to drive customer business performance through technology and innovation. Despite being a technology company, our view on technology is that it merely acts as an enabler in improving customers’ business performance. As such, our value to clients lies in our understanding of their business challenges and subsequently providing best-of-breed business answers that will enhance their productivity, competitive advantage and profitability.
