About Us

We reap what we sow

Copens Scientific (M) Sdn. Bhd. is known for impressive inventory of leading brands in the scientific market. To date, we are exclusively representing more than 40 brands, specialising in scientific equipment and apparatus down to laboratory chemicals. In line with our mission, the Company gives opportunities to scientists to design their laboratory needs, yet at attractive prices.

Copens Scientific (M) Sdn Bhd

The iconic name of “Copens” is reputable in the scientific community. In addition to its core activities in wholesaling (B2B) and direct supplying (B2C), Copens is also active in consultation and design. It first emerged as a modest enterprise serving indiscriminately even at the rural, isolated research institutions. A quarter of century's strive has begun to bear its fruits. Copens Scientific (M) Sdn. Bhd. is now a premier scientific distributor in Malaysia.

Copens Enterprise was first incorporated on 1978. Our dedication to a comprehensive range of laboratory products coupled with motivating responses from the supportive customers, have enabled the Company to progress to a private limited operation, known as Copens Scientific (M) Sdn. Bhd. on 16 September 2002.

On February 2009, the Company expands to a designed built premise at Selangor Science Park 1. The new premise is equipped with a showroom to provide a one-stop solution to the scientific personnel. With continuous cooperation and contributions from every member, the Company believes that more impressive growth is in sight.

Our Mission

The Company believes in the concept of chain-selling and economies of scale. The Company always channels the savings from bulk-buying to the customers. In order to serve the customers better, price may be important but a pure understanding in their scientific needs is a primary concern. Blending ourselves in the scientific world, it is our ultimate mission to bring success to the Company and the scientific community.

Organisational Goal

Progress, growth and expansion does not happen in a day. Thus it is the objective of the Company to develop a culture, rich with initiative, perseverance, efficiency, and effectiveness to gear the Company towards continued success.
