Factory Katan Wangsa Sdn Bhd


The history of Katan Group can be traced back to 1965 when our founder Mr. Lee Soon Fatt started out as a diesel merchant. As a distributor agent for the then Esso Oil Company, he was a well-known merchant prominent in diesoline supply during the early days. In the course of supplying diesoline to timber sawmills in Malaysia, Mr. Lee saw the need to extend into other products such as industrial cutting discs, wire ropes and other requisites in order to provide a more holistic supply solution to customers. Within a few years of operation, the business expanded and became a top selling diesoline agent of Esso, running a fleet of his own trucks, and operating from his office in Setapak and a warehouse facility in Gombak, under the name of Lee Trading Company. Years later, the Company was dissolved and Katan Wangsa Sdn Bhd was set up, budding from its foothold in oil and timber accessories businesses.

Today, having thrived for 40 years, the company is now an established importer and manufacturer of various rigging products and lubricants, with a warehousing facility of over 100,000 square feet, and factories well-equipped with advanced coiling, swaging, testing, and annealing machineries, laboratories and chemical blenders, all under the direction of Mr. Lee Soon Fatt's second generation of innovative new leaders.

The Katan group is now made up of several businesses centred around the following:

1. Rigging Solutions
