In the heart of Taman Residing in Malacca, there stands a company that symbolizes innovation and perseverance, not merely as a distributor of power tools but as a testament to resilience. Tiam Heng Machinery Sdn Bhd, founded in 1993 by Tan Boon Chye and Chan Mei Kuan (his wife), has been committed to providing customers with power tools, manual tools, and industrial machinery.
Looking back over the past 15 years, the developmental journey of Tiam Heng Machinery Sdn Bhd resembles an epic saga of dedication, with one of the protagonists being the Dongcheng power tools brand. Chan Mei Kuan expressed that the initial promotion of Dongcheng posed a significant challenge as they faced the formidable dominance of well-established foreign brands deeply rooted in the market.

Through continuous innovation and the adoption of unique promotional strategies, they provided consumers with the opportunity to experience the Dongcheng power tools brand firsthand. Fifteen years of unwavering effort finally earned the trust of numerous users in the market.
Chan Mei Kuan shared the strategies they employed to overcome challenges.

All of this was aimed at breaking the market monopoly of foreign brands, allowing consumers to enjoy more cost-effective and value-for-money tools, thereby enhancing work efficiency.
Chan Mei Kuan emphasized that one of the significant benefits of the Dongcheng brand is helping consumers reduce costs. Purchasing Dongcheng tools not only means obtaining high-quality products but also signifies an improvement in work efficiency.
