Dato’ Pa Nok Ching, the founder of the Jin Bin Group, was born and raised in the picturesque paddy fields of Kedah, which is also known as the Rice Bowl of Malaysia. Two persons who had made a significant impression on him when he was young were his grandparents who paved the way for his success as a pioneer in the manufacturing and distribution of herbal pharmaceutical products. His passion in herbal medicine developed since his younger days when he used to follow his grandparents who possessed knowledge in herbal remedies to collect herbs from the native jungle. He also learned business skills and tactics from his grandfather through the family business. The family operated a grocery shop, dealing with wholesale and distribution of rice then.
Dato’ Pa began his career milestone by seizing the opportunity of establishing a partnership company, Seri Puteh (Jin Bin) Sdn Bhd together with his uncle in 1971, dealing with Chinese and Western pharmaceutical products and food. In 1977, Dato’ Pa expanded his business into the retail sector by opening Jin Bin Mini Market in Sanglang, Kedah.
In 1979, at the aged of 26 years, Dato’ Pa set his vision on the distribution of Chinese and Western pharmaceutical and food products. He established a company called Chop Jin Bin and registered “Hurix-5” as a trademark, paving the way for Jin Bin to grow into a pharmaceutical empire.
Under the leadership of Dato’ Pa Nok Ching, Jin Bin Corporation Sdn Bhd, a marketing arm of the Jin Bin Group was successfully incorporated in 1996. Since then, it’s marketing network spread across Asia, Europe, USA, Africa and Middle East, establishing brands such as Hurix’s, JB, PT Timur, Paciline, Jayaline, Yokoline, Burung Merak Emas and Burung Emas.
In 1998, the Jin Bin Group boosted its professionalism in research, product and services with the construction of a three storey factory in Tandop, Alor Setar. The factory, JB Pharmacy Group Sdn Bhd transformed the Jin Bin Group from OEM supply to providing OEM facilities. In the same year, JB Pharmacy Group was awarded the Current Good Manufacturing Practice Certificate (cGMP) by the Malaysian Ministry of Health.
In order to meet the requirement of the exceptionally strict standards of manufacturing process, JB Laboratories Sdn Bhd, an independent laboratory was incorporated under the Jin Bin Group in 1999. JB Laboratories holds the International Standard Organisation Certification (SAMM, ISO/IEC 17025). All laboratory tests strictly comply with international standards and procedures.
