Haji Abu Bakar bin Ali started the company on a small scale in Kampung Baru Kuala Jemapoh, Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan, under the name Perusahaan Azan. According to his son and managing director of Perusahaan Azan, Mohd Ghazali bin Abu Bakar, the name Azan was chosen in conjunction with his grandfather's name. In 1972, Perusahaan Azan formed a joint venture with Negeri Sembilan's Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri (PKNNS). Perusahaan Azan relocated to Kuala Pilah's Dioh Industrial Estate in the same year. Perusahaan Azan Sdn. Bhd. was founded in 1975 as Perusahaan Azan Sdn. Bhd (PASB)

As of 2019, the company is shifting it's focus from traditional brick and mortar business to E-commerce. We are also expanding our products to cater to the younger consumers as there are some perceptions that our products is for older people only. Other than that, we are also trying to expand our products in other stores located in other state.
