About Us
Since Alkem succeeded Toppan Company, Singapore in 1999 we worked relentlessly hard towards achieving the goal we set. Our success would not have been possible without crafting and putting in practice, the strategic business policies and solutions. We are especially proud of our achievements at a time when the economic downturn, political upset, and the least expected health events plagued this region in Asia. Today we are ready to climb the next level through expanding our existing business and developing the new areas of business. To achieve this success we now seek a greater partnership with publishers, suppliers and manufacturers of supporting training and learning materials through various feasible means and perspective of business we can work out to mutual benefits. We are aware that any of such success would be difficult without the support of the publishers, suppliers and manufacturers whose products form the backbone of our business. With the ready infrastructures to meet and cope with the anticipated growing business we seek new or renewed business relationship with your corporation for a greater market share of your products in this region, a once described crouching tiger.

Today, Alkem Company and Alkem Distribution Center is one of the largest independent book and educational materials distribution company in South East Asia. Working with our partners and booksellers, we have been accredited as one of leading companies in Singapore. Our highest records was to distribute more than 15,000,000 copies of books in a single year and 4,000,000 ebooks in a single year.
