Chop Kong Siang was founded in Singapore, with eight shareholders from a mission of upholding integrity in business while delivering the best quality products to the consumers. The Group has grown from selling perishable and non-perishable products to regional liquor distribution, property development and management of a family office.
From humble beginnings to becoming one of the most trusted names in distribution in Asia, Interlocal Exim is all about keeping our family values in delivering exemplary experience for all our partner suppliers and retailers. As an alcoholic beverages distributor, we are passionate about increasing the accessibility of products that facilitate enjoyment, drinking responsibly and bringing people closer together.
Located at the Kong Siang Group Building in Singapore, the head office is housed in our own corporate building. This fully integrates warehousing and corporate office functions at the same location, further enhancing our logistic efficiency, allowing us to effectively react to the fluctuations of the evolving market, and increasing the company’s sustainability.
Since its incorporation as “Chop Kong Siang” in 1935, the company has grown into an established regional player in Asia with expertise in distribution of brands, import and export, warehousing and logistic operations.
