The Company PNG Namba Wan Trophy Limited (PNG NWTL) was established in October, 1989 and is still based in Port Moresby, the Capital City of Papua New Guinea. The name was derived from the acronym (PNG) which is Papua New Guinea and “Namba Wan” from one of the Country’s National languages “Pidgin” meaning, “Number One” or No. 1.
Initially the business was focused on retailing Trophies, Sporting Wear, Equipment, and Accessories to the local consumers. Eventually the services and quality of the business was recognized throughout Papua New Guinea which paved way for expansions. The division then included specialized engravings, souvenirs, and sports services (example: racquet re-stringing).
