Some might only know Sabah for its vast flora and fauna of the rainforests and great ecotourism, but the Borneo state has a lot more to offer. In late 2018, Kohler Malaysia in collaboration with YHY Engineering Sdn Bhd opened its first Sabah showroom in Kota Kinabalu.
The Sabah showroom marks the third showroom on the island of Borneo. Together with the authorized distributors YHY Engineering, showrooms in Sibu and Kuching were opened previously. The fast expansion of the economy and business led YHY to participate in the successful first Property Hunter event in 2018.
With growing residential and hospitality sectors and growing tourist industry, Sabah which means the ‘land below the wind’, is an excellent location for Kohler’s seventh showroom in Malaysia. During the opening ceremony, Adam Quek, general manager and commercial director K&B SEA, and Marcus Yek, director of YHY Engineering, were present for the official signing.
Rounding up the formalities of the event with the ribbon cutting, Adam and Marc were joined by Jo-Anna Sue Henley Rampas, political secretary of the chief minister of Sabah, after her presentation. Sabah Housing and Real Estate Developers Association (SHAREDA) president Chew Sang Hai also helped to cut the red ribbons to officially open the Sabah showroom.
The unveiling of the showroom was followed by a tour through the 1,099 square-foot built-up space in the mall dubbed Cyber City. The new Sabah showroom has an extensive range of products on display that include intelligent toilets, bidet seats, mirrored cabinets, showering systems, and PVD vibrant finishes for faucets.
There was also plenty of time to network over snacks and drinks with industry peers, architects, and designers from the city and East Malaysia.
In its 19th year, Kota Kinabalu city is thriving and expanding without losing its charm of the ‘botanical heaven’. It is an ideal place for a business catering to a multicultural society and addressing the growing needs for luxury products and services.
