Founded in 1996, Kuala Lumpur Metro Group (the Group) started with its construction arm, YBK Engineering Sdn Bhd, as a medium-sized contractor specializing in infrastructure and related construction works in Malaysia and overseas. Since then, the construction arm has experienced exponential growth despite the economic turmoil during the Asia Financial Crisis in 1997. In response to the trends towards globalization, YBK took on the critical steps to expand its construction business to international frontiers by undertaking overseas projects which include a newly constructed motorway in Qatar.
Moving ahead, the Group has adopted bold approaches by diversifying into other areas with its core business in property development, giving additional impetus to its envisaged expansion. These areas include: infrastructure construction, hotel management, interior design & renovation, tours & travel, Malaysia My 2nd Home (MM2H) program and real estate investment.
