Starting out in the early 1960s as a sole proprietorship in a humble shophouse in Serangoon Gardens selling kitchen appliances, the company overcame the odds and grew through the toil and hard work of its founding members.

SRI was established as the sole distributor of Tecno and Tecnogas. Our quality products from cooker hobs and hoods to refrigerators, ovens and washing machines immediately became a hit amongst households in Singapore. This heralded a new era in home appliances, paving the progress from traditional cookers to automated, high-precision built-in gas stoves.

Building on our credible track record and backed by decades of experience, we are now a leading manufacturer and provider of home appliances in the region. Here at Tecno, we believe that the kitchen is a special place where food is lovingly prepared and people bond to create precious memories. Whether over a bowl of grandma's soup, or a sumptuous feast of roast meat and wine among friends, every kitchen has a story of its own. That's why every Tecno product, from our iconic cooker hobs, hoods and ovens to our small appliances, are carefully engineered to enhance the overall cooking experience. Driven by our continuous pursuit of perfection, we constantly raise the bar with increased standards of safety, style and workmanship that will last for generations to come.
