Kuckreja & Co
Established in 1946, Kuckreja & Company [ Kook-re-ja ] is one of Malaysia’s oldest sports wholesalers. Founded by Tarlok & Teja Kuckreja in their hometown of Kluang, Johor, Kuckreja & Company initially began out as a general retailer selling all manner of products. The business started out operating from the ground floor of the family home, trading textile products catering mainly for soldiers of the British Army based in Kluang at the time.
Between 1960 until 1988, Kuckreja changed the direction of its business. It ventured into the retail and wholesale segment of the sporting industry. Slowly but surely, it built up a name for itself in the sports market in Malaysia.
Upon the retirement of the founding fathers, the business headquarters shifted its operations to the capital city of Kuala Lumpur in 1990 under the helm of his Tarlok’s son, Mohanjit Kuckreja. In Kuala Lumpur, the business evolved under its new owner and shifted focus towards becoming a fully fledged wholesaler of the best sporting brands available. Over the past 20 years, Kuckreja Sdn Bhd has acquired the sole distribution rights for several international brands in Malaysia and South-East Asia. Gilbert Rugby, Grays Hockey and Gray-Nicolls Cricket are amongst the flagship brands we are proud to carry. We are also the sole distributors for Harrows Darts and Obut Petanque.
In line with the company’s vision to cater for all levels of the sporting market locally, we have developed our own brands of equipment. KC is our in house brand of hockey equipment, while Trident is a high-quality, low-cost range of track and field, martial arts and agility equipment.
We are constantly evolving and growing in our continued effort to be the premier one-stop branded sporting goods supplier in this region. We firmly believe that we have something that meets everyone’s need and budget, be it the latest items in the market or simply that ‘hard-to-find’ sporting equipment.
With the appointment of Rajpal Kuckreja – grandson of the late Tarlok Kuckreja, the family business now spans 3 generations. The dynamic duo who lead the company are steering it to new and exciting heights. We invite you to join us on this journey. It will be a combination of heritage, experience, fresh ideas, innovation and promise.
After all, we are only 67 years old, growing younger and grooving into the future.
