Back in 1942 in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, a local company, Heap Seng Tobacco was established to manufacture and distribute cheroot. Its business expanded and soon it became one of the biggest tobacco product supplier in Malaysia (known as Malaya at that time).

Dato’ Sri Goh innovated and turned to white cigarette manufacturing and distribution in 1994 and the company transformed from Heap Seng Tobacco to Global Tobacco Manufacturing in year 2009. Like most other businessmen, Dato’ Sri Goh spent his leisure moment by playing golf. There came a moment as he stood by the green and sudden inspiration striked him he visualized transforming a big piece of land into a cozy nest called “HOME”

Dato’ Sri Goh started to venture in development industry in 2010. GTM Land & Property Sdn Bhd officially launched its maiden project “Tropicale Residency”. It became the biggest Gated Free Hold project in Northern Region of Malaysia.

Dato’ Sri Goh took over the whole operational business of BM Country Club in 2013 and had it refurbished a year later. Through business associates.
