About APW

Art Printing Works was first established in 1965 as a commercial printing plant. It is currently undergoing a transformation phase to become a creative campus that will house new businesses and startups, all while hosting a multitude of events including art exhibitions and cycling community meetups.

About Ee Soon Wei

Soon Wei is the CEO of APW, an industrial space in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. At APW, he is rolling out ambitious plans to revive the site, which involves transforming the old commercial printing factory into an urban creative campus.

Being a speaker at TEDxKL 2013, Soon Wei shared his mission to revive and enliven The Royal Press, a printing company founded in 1938 by Ee Lay Swee. This family patriarch is a heritage letterpress printing house in Malacca.
Soon Wei currently manages TRP Heritage Sdn Bhd that oversees its revival to transform into a living museum. He wants to pass on the traditions of this amazing method, as well as preserve their precious family history.
