The 70s was an exciting period for the company as it started exporting to Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Denmark,
Japan, Australia and the UK. It also diversified its business to the design, manufacture and marketing of precious
jewellery under the Selberan brand name. Later in 1993, the company acquired Comyns, one of the oldest and most
prestigious silversmiths in the world. Both companies continue to be a part of the Royal Selangor group.
In 1979, the company received a royal warrant from the Sultan of Selangor and in 1992, changed its name to Royal
Selangor. Today, the third and fourth generations of the Yong family work with a passionate team of managers to build
Royal Selangor into a truly global brand.
With a workforce of more than 250 craftspeople, the pewter factory based in Setapak is now part of an award-winning
Visitor Centre, which attracts over 200,000 visitors a year from all over the world. It is here that today's generation of consumers learn about Royal Selangor's humble beginnings and how pewter continues to be very much a handcrafted industry.
