History

SPM Syarikat Permainan (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. was established on 26th June 1976 by Perak born inventor Ting Sie Bing.

An inventor since his early years, Ting turned his hobby into a successful profit generating enterprise, gaining worldwide recognition in the process. Constantly looking for new ideas and concepts, Ting stumbled upon what would be his flagship product whilst working as an instructor for a government industrial training institute.
 
One day, he noticed a few of his colleagues using the English word game SCRABBLE® to play in Bahasa Melayu (BM). They were struggling and found that there were a lot of unused tiles at the end of the game. Ting pondered over this and concluded that the frequency of alphabets used in the English SCRABBLE® could not be used when playing the game in BM. For example, the letter 'A' appears three times more frequently in BM than it does in English.
 
Recognising the need for a BM version of the popular English word game, Ting started to develop the BM version, studying a BM dictionary to determine the frequency of the alphabets needed for a successful BM edition. Working part time, it took Ting four years to research the gaming requirements required for a BM version of the English word game. Ignoring the whispers and comments of those around him who thought that he was eccentric at best, Ting developed the hugely successful SAHIBBA® and SPM Syarikat Permainan (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd was born.
 
Ting left his job and started SPM to market and sell SAHIBBA® in 1976. Initially working out of his home, Ting has since expanded his business into a multi million ringgit venture and in the process garnering many local and international awards.
