The Company was incorporated in 1977 in Kuching, Sarawak under the name of Yung Kong Galvanising Industries Bhd. It was listed on the Second Board of Bursa Malaysia in 1997 and subsequently transferred to the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia in 2003. The Company changed its name to YKGI Holdings Berhad on 17 May 2013 and further changed its name to ASTEEL Group Berhad with effect from 27 June 2023.
