Vanguard was established 67 years ago in 1955 as a Sole Proprietor to deal primarily with electronic components, namely electronic valves. In the process, Vanguard expanded its trading arms, venturing into Test and Measuring Instruments for manufacturing industries, and thereafter supplying components and instrumentation for the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Vanguard’s Head Office is situated in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


In 1986, Vanguard upgraded itself from Sole Proprietor to a Private Limited Company called Vanguard Electronic Sdn Bhd (158227-T).

In 1992, Vanguard moved into a new milestone – Independent Testing Equipment (ITE). Vanguard worked closely with SIRIM, Malaysia (National Standard Laboratory) and Japan Institute Corporation Association (JICA) to ensure the manufacturing industries in Malaysia meets the requirements of Institutional Electrical Council (IEC), British Standard (BS) and Malaysian Standard (MS). Thereafter, Vanguard began to supply ITE which are in line with SIRIM, Malaysia’s standards and requirement for factories to enable them to test independently their manufacturing products.

In 1997, Vanguard moved into Factory Automation. The objective is to test the products on the production line – to meet the standards set by the Quality Control and Quality Assurance of the respective companies.

In 2004, Vanguard upgraded itself from repairing and servicing of education trainers to manufacturing education trainers. This is primarily for the Malaysian Ministry of Education which encompasses public schools, polytechnics, technical college, college technical universities and universities.
