Formed in 1965 as Keat Radio and Electrical Co. in Balik Pulau, Penang by Dato Chew Weng Khak. Establishing a small shop in Penang, Keat Radio and Electrical Co. was a very small retailer and also workshop for our common household electrical appliances. Almost a decade later, Keat Radio and Electrical Co. would have their first branch, and later on they also ventured into importing, exporting and distribution of electrical home appliances.
It was only in 1982, that the company changed to Pensonic Sales and Service Sdn. Bhd., expanding vastly throughout Malaysia to contain and house their expanding business under the big group.
Today Pensonic assembles their own products and conducts their own research and development. They manufacture, import, export, distribute, and market a variety of electrical home appliances for their local market as well as international markets. Pensonic is also currently focused on its Own Design Manufacturing (ODM) for several electrical home appliances brands.
How did the name 'Pensonic' come about, however? A lot of people who are not familiar with the heritage of the company of Pensonic tend to link it as a copy-cat of another larger Japanese electrical appliance technology. However, that is not the case. The name Pensonic actually originates from a very sweet tale of the founder's decision to play tribute to his homestate and to his company's homestate: Penang.
'Pen' derives from Penang, whilst 'sonic' comes as a representative of radio or sound waves from the company's beginnings of selling radios - they both come together to form Pensonic, a brand name that both represents its origins and its industry.
