OUR BUSINESS

Building a Green Future

With a group of highly qualified engineers, a sound management and supervisory team, HKT is set to become a leading Industrialised Building System (IBS) player providing Total Building Solutions to the construction industry, not only in Malaysia but throughout the Asean nations as well.

We have factories producing all types of precast components of the Industrialised Building System, namely precast columns & beams for the low rise buildings, load bearing & shear walls for the high rise buildings as well as lightweight high performance panels all in conformance to the Uniform Building By-laws (UBBL), Malaysia as well as the stringent requirements of CIDB.

Apart from ensuring a shorter delivery time, better quality and cost effectiveness, adopting the IBS is the only solution to lessen or minimise the dependence of foreign labour.

Our factories are also able to produce the whole spectrum of precast concrete products among which include the production of RC square piles, reinforced earth retaining panels, precast concrete septic tanks and precast concrete manholes.
