Established in 1983, Goodrich Wallcoverings Pte Ltd was founded by Mr Chan Chong Beng and Mr Thomas Gay. It was a small 7-man operation which supplied wallcoverings to architects, interior designers and property developers. This business model provided the foundation on which the business steadily grew in strength and scale. In 2005, Mr Chan embarked on a branding campaign which coupled with his strong leadership and strategic execution of his business policy. This saw a 93% increase in Goodrich Global’s retail revenue for 2007 in Singapore alone. In that year, Mr Chan was conferred the prestigious title of ‘Overall Winner – Entrepreneur of the Year 2007’.
In 2012, the Goodrich brand was valued at S$15.4 million by Brand Finance, the world’s leading independent brand valuation company headquartered in the United Kingdom, England. The company has been accredited with the “Singapore Quality Class” certification and the ISO 9001:2008 certification.
