CHM Group is a privately owned multi-sector group of companies that has been operating in Papua New Guinea for over 70+ years. The company was established by its founder, Chin Hoi Meen, in 1949 in Rabaul originally as a small milk bar selling comic books. Over the last 7 decades, the Group has grown and expanded its businesses under the leadership of current Managing Directors, Raymond Chin MBE and Grace Chin. Today, CHM Group, is one of the most respected leading diversified companies in Papua New Guinea, with businesses operating across the Retail, Commercial, Property, Energy and Music sectors.
Our story begins in 1949 when our founder, Chin Hoi Meen, first decides to open a small milk bar and movie theatre in Rabaul. As a passionate photographer, he then decides to open his first photography store in Port Moresby in 1952 where he opens the first black and white film processing photography stores in PNG.
For decades, CHM Group has prided itself not only for its contributions to nation building, but also for its contributions to the local community through its support of charitable causes and organisations that make a positive impact in the lives of Papua New Guineans in need, such as the Port Moresby General Hospital Children’s ward, Cheshire Disability Services, Red Cross many others.
