About Utusan

Since its establishment in 1938, the Group has progressed and consolidated itself into a multiple media conglomerate of the 21st century.

Today, the Group's diverse expansion is still synergistic with its traditional core activities. With over ten companies under its wings, the Utusan Group is engaged in four major business concerns namely publishing, printing, advertising and online services.

In a recent poll survey conducted on Malaysian publications by AC Nielson, the Group's two key newspapers, Utusan Malaysia and Mingguan Malaysia, as well as its top four magazines namely Mastika, Mangga, URTV and Wanita, have consistently achieved and maintained the highest circulations and readerships.

Utusan now operates its printing activities from its printing plants situated in Bangi, Prai, Kuala Terengganu and Johor Bharu.

In 1997, the Group made its entry into the world of multimedia with the launched of Utusan Malaysia On-Line, Malaysia's first on-line newspaper in full text and visuals.
