Echoing this sentiment, Datuk Lim Mee Ling, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of OGAWA Malaysia said, “At OGAWA, we believe in sharing the ‘Heart of Wellness’ by introducing cutting-edge and tested health and wellness technologies into as many Malaysians’ homes as possible.

The partnership with OGAWA Malaysia is one of the three strategic partnerships under CUCKOO International’s Healthy Living pillar which taps into the strengths of local industry leaders to co-create innovative home living solutions that promote healthier living. Prior to OGAWA Malaysia, CUCKOO International has had two successful partnerships. In 2020, CUCKOO International partnered with LSK Napure, Malaysia’s largest natural latex manufacturer, to launch the CUCKOO A-Series Mattresses in 2021; and in 2022, the company worked with Fujiaire, a local homegrown air-conditioning manufacturer, to launch the CUCKOO Vita-S Inverter Smart Air Conditioner.
With the addition of the partnership with OGAWA Malaysia, the Healthy Home Creator’s Healthy Living pillar is expected to extend its growth which charted a solid 199.7% revenue growth at RM95 million in 2022 from RM31.7 million in 2021.
“We believe that our approach in expanding and providing holistic Healthy Home solutions will not only inspire more Malaysians to be #SAMASAMAHealthier, but will also set us on the right trajectory for growth. Apart from our strong range of Healthy Appliances, we believe that a way to do so is through strategic partnerships like this, in which we will be able to expand our core to introduce new and inventive home living solutions that could help inspire a healthier living,” added Mr. Hoe.
