Our Profile
Pustaka Nasional Pte Ltd (PN) was incorporated as a private exempt company on 5 July 1979. Its main competencies lie in publishing quality books, their distribution to corporate customers on a business-to-business level and to individual consumers on a retail basis via its own bookstore and also in typesetting services in Arabic. In 1966, the business started its first publishing of Islamic textbooks for the madrasahs(Islamic schools) in Singapore. This was followed by children books and novels in Malay. In 1969 a second bookshop was opened at Block 1, #01-41 Jalan Pasar Baru in Geylang Serai. There were 8 staff working altogether in the business in the1970s and by the time the company was incorporated in 1979, there were 12 employees. In 1984 the office shifted to Shaw Towers along Beach Road to cater to the increasing workload and space requirements of desktop publishing. By this time the company had published close to 200 titles in Malay, Jawi, Arabic and English. The company had also secured typesetting work from overseas publishers in Egypt, Kuwait, United Kingdom and Malaysia. In 1995, the company shifted its office to Joo Chiat Complex to be close to the Malay heartland in Geylang Serai. The office at Block 2, #05-1131 Joo Chiat Complex, Joo Chiat Road was only 5 minutes walk from its retail outlet in Geylang Serai. The company also shifted its warehouse from Kandahar Street to Block 1001, #02-06 Eunos Avenue 8. This was due to the redevelopment of the Arab Street area. In 1999 the office shifted to to #05-1125, a larger unit in the same building and this remains the office at this time. A second bookshop was opened in 1999 at #01-01 Wisma Indah, 448 Changi Road next to Masjid Kassim in Kembangan. However in January 2005 its Pasar Baru retail outlet was closed due to the redevelopment of the area.
