Country of Origin
: Home-Fix was established in 1993 by two brothers, Low Cheong Kee (CK) and Low Cheong Yew (CY). From its humble beginnings as a family-owned hardware shop at Siglap Centre, Home-Fix has grown into a chain of 22 stores in Singapore, nine in Malaysia and one each in Cambodia and Mongolia.
The Lows aim to move Home-Fix beyond being a mere retailer of DIY products towards a fully-fledged lifestyle brand synonymous with a home-centric, home-loving and house-proud lifestyle. They also share common desire to promote the practice of DIY home improvements among consumers by empowering them with products, tools and the knowledge to ‘do it themselves’. Customers can now sign up for Courses & Workshop at Home-Fix’s Experience Centre (XPC) to make their own DIY projects or learn lifelong skills in home maintenance.
In acknowledgement that not all consumers have the time and inclination to DIY, Home-Fix has introduced a suite of ‘DIFY’ – or ‘Doing-It-For-You’ – services. These include professional repair, replacement, installation, painting and handyman services.
Home-Fix continues to search for new global opportunities and ways to harness technology to improve its business operations. It also constantly implements and enforces good business practices aimed at presenting ‘old’ products and services in modern, innovative ways.
