On 31 May 1963, when Merlin Hotels Malaysia was first incorporated, it sets the stage for the birth of Faber Group Berhad. At the time, Merlin Hotels Malaysia was focused on the hospitality industry and was the holding company for only two subsidiaries, Hotel Merlin Kuala Lumpur Sdn Bhd and Hotel Merlin Cameron Highlands Berhad.
However, through a series of events, what started as a simple Hotel Company became a major player not only in the hotel industry but also in other key industries such as Property Development and Healthcare. The seminal point came in 1972 when Merlin Hotels Malaysia Berhad merged with Faber Union Sdn Bhd and Faber Merlin Malaysia Berhad was formed - a company which recognises the importance of change.
Over the years, Faber Merlin Malaysia Berhad continues to diversify and grow in strength. Finally, on 22 November 1990, in recognition of the progress achieved by the company, Faber Merlin Malaysia Berhad changed its name to Faber Group Berhad with core businesses in Hospitality and Property.
The group expanded its portfolio in October 1996 to include Hospital Support Services in the northern states of Peninsular Malaysia and in East Malaysia.
