L&G was incorporated in Malaysia in May 1964 as Nanyang Holdings Sdn Bhd and, in 1968, changed its name to General Lumber (Holdings) Bhd and converted to a public limited company. It changed its name again in 1991 to Land & General Berhad, to better reflect its operations and business concentrations.
The Company was listed on the KLSE (formerly the Stock Exchange of Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Ltd) in 1968. It maintained both of these listings until l989 when Malaysian Government policy and the listing requirements of the KLSE required its delisting from the Stock Exchange of Singapore, which took effect from 1 January 1990. The Company is currently listed on the Main Board of the Bursa Malaysia.
The Company originally operated as a saw-miller and timber trader by securing several timber concessions, but significantly expanded its business in the mid 1980s following the introduction of a new management team.
Currently the Company is a holding company with subsidiaries engaged primarily in the property sector with investments in the plantation, education and leisure & hospitality sectors.
