Obsnap Instruments Sdn Bhd was established in July 1997 as a company involved in retailing and wholesaling of test and measuring instruments. The company imports test and measuring instruments to meet the local manufacturing industries demands.
The name "Obsnap" was inspired by a function in Autocad called "osnap", which is a combination of the words "object" and "snap". This function, served as an inspiration for the birth of the company's name because it is an effective tool in pin pointing and selecting the desired items which is an exact reflection of Obsnap's aspiration in assisting their customers in sourcing the instruments that they are looking for.
Initially, Obsnap spread its wings in the business world with an ambition to become one of the major instrument supplying hub in Malaysia. To realize this dream, Obsnap started off by selling some small portable instruments which were meant for quality control and inspection requirement.
The first industry that Obsnap stepped into was in the coating and painting related industry before expanding its business to include several other industries such as the plastic, automobile, food and electronic industry. The expansion also began showing in their products as Obsnap began to sell bigger and more sophisticated equipments such as instrument for material testing as well as x-ray related equipments.
Obsnap's current customer base is more than 3000 customers including manufacturers, contractors, government bodies and universities.
