About the Donor

TAK Products & Services Pte Ltd was founded in 1989 as a distributor of interior surfacing tools. Its success led the Company to diversify into laminates in 1997 when it acquired the distribution rights to a leading brand. The popularity of laminates soon grew into a demand from customers for more chic designs and a wider as well as Asian-inspired selection of styles. To cater to the market's discerning needs, TAK launched its own line of laminates – Lamitak®, which aims to Inspire Spaces. Lamitak's success has made TAK a leading force in the industry, with overseas offices established in Thailand, Malaysia and China, and distributorships established in the rest of Asia.
