Home-Fix was established in 1993 by two brothers, Low Cheong Kee (CK) and Low Cheong Yew (CY). From its humble beginnings as a family-owned hardware shop at Siglap Centre, Home-Fix has grown into a chain of 22 stores with an additional 9 in Malaysia and one in Cambodia. Through pure hard work and a steadfast commitment to a shared vision, the Low brothers have been instrumental in shaping the local DIY and home improvements retail scene. The Lows share a common desire to promote the practice of DIY home improvements among consumers, by empowering them with the tools and the knowledge to ‘do it themselves’. They also aim to move Home-Fix beyond being a mere retailer of DIY products, and towards becoming a fully-fledged lifestyle brand synonymous with a home-centric, home-loving and house-proud lifestyle.
In acknowledgement of the fact that not all consumers have the time and the inclination to DIY, and in line with the aim of becoming a total home improvement solutions provider, Home-Fix has recently introduced a suite of ‘DIFY’ – or ‘Doing-It-For-You’ – services. These include professional repair, replacement, installation, painting and handyman services. Home-Fix continues to search for new ways to harness technology for the improvement of its business operations. It also constantly implements and enforces good business practices aimed at presenting ‘old’ products and services in modern, innovative ways.
