HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY

Synonymous with its dealing in a wide range of the fine LEATHER footwear and other leather wears, the company's name "LEA" was derived. The group's business has today become the hallmark of the shoe retailing industry throughout Malaysia.

Distinctively recognized for being the premier and largest shoe retail company in Malaysia, LEA CENTRE first began as a family business which started its operations on 17 May 1984 with its head office located at 4th Floor, Wisma Hopoh Shopping Complex, Jalan P. Ramlee, Kuching, Sarawak.

From its humble beginnings of having only one retail outlet on the 3rd floor of Wisma Hopoh Shopping Complex measuring 672sq ft in 1984, the company has steadily grown over the years and today became the largest retail-based business group in Sarawak. Having started with a meager workforce of less than five employees, the company has grown from strength to strength and currently has more than 700 employees throughout Malaysia. With retail outlets located in all the major shopping complexes, Lea Centre's products grew, so did our market opportunities.

For several years, in addition to the mainstream of shoe retailing, Lea Group of Companies has successfully marketed exclusive and innovative products to Sibu, Bintulu, Miri, Kota Kinabalu and elsewhere in West Malaysia.

In fact, our most recent line of innovative products has introducted us to virtually every resale market from the most specialized to mass merchandising, including renowned department stores and dealers throughout East Malaysia, Brunei and West Malaysia who share our beliefs and practices, growing and expanding together into the 21st century.
