Harvey Norman, the leading household name that has enhanced Malaysian homes since 2003, joyously commemorates its 20th anniversary in the country this year. The brand, with origins in Australia, marks a remarkable two-decade journey of bringing Malaysians an unparalleled omnichannel for a seamless offline and online retail experience with its wide range of electrical appliances, IT and mobile devices, furniture, and bedding products.

Mr Simon Fellows, Acting Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia, providing event attendees with his opening remarks. He emphasised the important contribution of Australian companies like Harvey Norman in strengthening Australia’s trading and business links with Malaysia.

This remarkable journey and celebration took on a special undertone recently as the Acting Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia, Mr Simon Fellows, hosted an exclusive luncheon at the official residence in Kuala Lumpur, to commemorate the occasion. The special event saw invited guests and members of the media coming together to celebrate a major milestone in Harvey Norman’s presence in Malaysia and its strong ties to its Australian origins.

“I would like to congratulate Harvey Norman on its 20th anniversary in Malaysia,” said Mr Simon Fellows. “Harvey Norman is an iconic Australian retail brand, and its stores can be found in large and small towns across Australia, making a significant contribution to the local economy as they do here in Malaysia.”

“Some of Australia’s best-loved consumer brands are found in shopping malls across Malaysia and are great examples of our strong trading and business links that continue to grow. Malaysian franchises can also be found in Australia, and we continue to see businesses from Malaysia investing in our own economy,” he said. 

“Harvey Norman has been helping Malaysian families to fit out their homes, and business professionals to equip offices, for 20 years. Australia is proud of its strong business links with Malaysia and innovative approaches to retailing. As Harvey Norman and other Australian retailers continue to expand their presence in Malaysia, we look forward to Australian-designed and Australian-made products enriching even more Malaysian homes,” Mr Fellows said. 

Kenneth Aruldoss, Managing Director of Harvey Norman Asia, commented, “As we celebrate our 20-year milestone in Malaysia, we are elated to see our expansion making its presence felt even in the official residence of the Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia.”

Mr Kenneth Aruldoss, Managing Director of Harvey Norman Asia, shared Harvey Norman’s focus on customer-centric approaches worldwide, during his opening speech.

“More than that, however, this celebration emphasises our dedication to providing Malaysians with top-notch products and a seamless omnichannel online and offline shopping experience. With our pledge of bringing ‘Your Home, Closer than Ever,’ we continue to be the trusted partner in creating the perfect living environment in Malaysian homes. Beyond that, the ongoing expansion of Harvey Norman in Malaysia to 80 stores by the end of 2028 will not only improve the Malaysian economy through our investment in the country, but will also pave the way for job creation, while contributing to the nation’s revenue, ultimately leading to heightened economic prosperity,” he added. 

Amidst the transformative landscape of the retail industry following the COVID-19 pandemic, Harvey Norman remains at the industry forefront, empowering consumers with innovative solutions and a seamless omnichannel shopping experience tailored to Malaysians’ evolving needs.
