Founder of Bristol Technologies Sdn. Bhd.
MR. YONG YOOK SENG
A determined self-starter, Yong Yook Seng founded Bristol armed with an instinct for business and talent for making/creating things. After qualifying as an Electrical Engineer, Yong Yook Seng began his career at the Singapore Air Force as an aircraft engineer. Before long, it became apparent that he wasn’t cut out for life as an employee. His early forays into business selling white boards and supplying wooden boxes went well before he had a successful run trading chair components manufactured in Europe to Malaysian companies. Despite this, Yong quickly realised that just supplying goods was not a sustainable business model in the long run, so he decided to design and manufacture his own product – this led to the founding of Bristol where he could manufacture office chairs of his own design.
Through the years, Yong has grown the company and built a reputation by being ahead of the curve via innovative technology and good design. Because of his foresight, Bristol’s strategic focused production location means that orders can be managed efficiently and customisation is easily achievable. As a result of the strong fundamentals Yong put into place, Bristol continues to grow from strength to strength with Yong in its driver’s seat.
History over the years
Bristol was established in 1983 and since then, it has grown from trading in office chair components to becoming a company adept at both designing and manufacturing quality office furniture.
