Signature International is a kitchen cabinet manufacturer, with businesses in retail, project, imported appliances, glass and aluminium, while Chin Hin’s business portfolio encompasses five core divisions, namely building materials, property development, construction, home and living, and solar energy. 

In a separate announcement on Monday, Chin Hin, in a joint effort with Solarvest’s residential solar subsidiary Vestech Energy Sdn Bhd, launched a Go Green & Clean Campaign to encourage residential solar adoption among Chin Hin’s employees.

Through the campaign, Vestech will be offering an attractive and affordable solar financing scheme, specifically tailored to each staff. The offer is applicable to approximately 2,000 employees in the initial phase. 

Notably, Chin Hin on May 17 proposed to divest a 19.34% stake in Solarvest to Divine Inventions for RM103.28 million, or 80 sen per share, resulting in a one-off disposal gain of RM35.68 million.
