Our History

interior design


Ban Yew was officially set up in Malaysia. We started out with only 2 carpenters and the traditional style of carpentry and furniture fabrication, which includes manual hand-sawing, filing, etc. Our core business was fabrication of furniture, custom made furniture, and sold them to furniture retails.


Moved to Singapore in 1976, Ban Yew was officially registered as a business in Singapore as Ban Yew Timber and Renovation Construction.


The 2nd generation Mr Lau Kwok Luen took over his father’s business back in 1977.
Started carpentry works at the age of 8 till today.

With a quick expansion of carpenters, Ban Yew then rented a 3000sqft private premise at Jalan Paras, for carpentry and production use.


With a huge demand for whole house renovation works, Ban Yew then diversified to not only pure carpentry works, but included whole house renovation packages, which include our forte carpentry, as well as wet works, ceiling works, electrical, etc.


Our first showroom was officially opened in Macpherson Road. We established as one of the pioneers in the renovation and interior industry.


We launched 2 more interior design showrooms in the then popular Bukit Timah Plaza and Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, and in 1995, our fourth showroom in Beauty World Centre.


Ban Yew was then relocated by HDB to a permanent premise in Eunos, a corner terrace industrial house which consists of a 2500sqft factory space + 1200sqft office space, which is also our current headquarters for the past 2 decades.


Ban Yew officially launched Carpenter Productions on 29 Dec 2010, as part of their subsidiary company.
Carpenter Productions is more focused on keeping up with the current trend of Singapore interior design.
Carpenter Productions is later renamed to Carpenters.com.sg Pte Ltd on July 2012.

With our up to date designers scouting for the most up to date designs, combined with Ban Yew’s vast experiences in renovation and carpentry quality, we are once again bringing Ban Yew and Carpenters to new milestones.
