History

Sime Darby Plantation can trace its roots to as early as the 19th Century, when pioneering English planters established rubber plantations in Malaya. Among those pioneers were Alexander Guthrie, Daniel & Smith Harrison, Joseph Crosfield, Willliam Sime and Henry d'Esterre & Herbert Mitford Darby - founders of three great companies (Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad, Golden Hope Plantations Berhad and Sime Darby Berhad) which merged in 2007 to become the Sime Darby Group.
