About Us

126 Years On.....

E. J. Motiwalla & Co was established in 1886 in Penang by Esufali Jaffarbhai Motiwalla, a merchant from Surat, India.

From its origins as an Import-Export Company trading mainly with India and Burma, E. J. Motiwalla & Co settled to the supply of Stationery and Paper Products to companies and government departments in Penang.

The Singapore office was set up in the early 1900s.

The Kuala Lumpur was established in the late 1950s.

In the 1960s, the company changed its focus to selling Technical Stationery and Drawing Office Equipment bringing in such famed brands as Ravena, Harper & Turnstall, Multitec, AEL, Diazit and Sihl.

Surveying instruments (Kern & Pentax); Small Survey Tools and Precision Measuring Equipment (Suunto, Haglof, Ushikata) for use in forestry and agriculture were subsequently added.

E. J. Motiwalla & Co (Malaysia) supplied some of the earliest Analogue Mapping Systems to the Survey Department of Malaysia and subsequently Malaysia's first Digital Mapping System to the UTM in Johor Bahru. To this day, the Malaysian offices continue to be active in the field of Geomatics.

With CAD replacing manual drafting, we were amongst the first in bringing in Ink Jet and Electrostatic Papers and in subsequent years added Digital Reprographic Systems to replace the analogue ammonia plan-printers.

As sign makers embraced digital technology, Wide Format Lamination equipment and specialty print materials were added to service this new emerging market segment.

In recent years, with growing emphasis on the digitization of a large volume of Documents, Books, Fine Art, Heritage Documents, Technical Drawings, Newspapers, Maps, Memory Collectibles etc. E. J. Motiwalla & Co has put together a range of Specialty Scanners and Software and offers specialized Scanning Services for the digitization of the above.

E. J. Motiwalla & Co continues to look for new business opportunities to meet the ever changing market.

The company is owned and managed by the third and fourth generation of the children of the founder Esufali Jaffarbhai Motiwalla.
