A Singapore printer is born
1973 - 1998 (25 years)

As a subsidiary of Temasek, we started out as Singapore National Printers. After acquiring Educational Publications Bureau (EPB), we became the first company to list on the SESDAQ as SNP Corporation.

Expanding our footprint to Greater China

Under the leadership of CEO Chee Tong Yeo (1998 – present), we expanded beyond Singapore. After acquiring strong print businesses in Greater China like Leefung-Asco, we rebranded as SNP Leefung. Achieving 70% of the magazine print market share in China, we boldly expanded our service offerings by acquiring companies specialising in packaging, labeling, security printing, and financial printing.
