Our History

Perinsuran was founded in 1974 as a joint venture between Heath Hudig-Langeveldt, a provider of insurance protection for cargo ships since 1680 and the Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) at a time when the State was experiencing a dynamic boom in industrial development.

SEDC is a state owned statutory body tasked with promoting investment and economic development of the State of Sarawak. Because there was little experience of the insurance broking industry in the state at that time, SEDC established the joint venture to address SEDC’s growing insurance needs as well as those of other recently established government bodies such as Sarawak Electricity Supply Corporation (SESCO), Sarawak Land Development Board (SLDB) and the state government’s water boards.
