CPN was founded on June 17, 1980 with a registered capital of Baht 300 million. Over the past decade, the company has observed a dramatic shift not only in consumer trends but also market demands for more fully intergrated shopping complexes that can offer consumers a total an experience.
As a true market pioneer with a resolved understanding of changing market trends, CPN developed a series of quality mixed-use complexes that can readily meet consumer needs. Among the first to be established was the CentralPlaza Ladrprao in 1982, which truely reflects the company's mission to innovate and revolutionize the ideal retail experience.
CPN later observed a significant milestone as it became a Public Company Limited in 1994, and was subsequently registered on Thailand's Stock Exchange in 1995. More importantly, in 2001, CentralPlaza Ladprao became the first-ever shopping center in Thailand to have been certified and awarded the coveted ISO 9001 -2000.
