40 Years of Growth

Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad (CMS) is Sarawak’s leading infrastructure facilitator and a prime mover in Sarawak’s growth story.

Originally established as a cement manufacturer some 43 years ago, CMS has steadfastly grown from strength to strength amidst the challenges of the marketplace and successfully diversified into the manufacturing and trading of Cement and Construction Materials; Construction; Road Maintenance; Township, Property and Infrastructure Development; Education; and Financial Services. In 2015, CMS bolstered its role as an infrastructure facilitator by venturing into the telecommunications infrastructure arena.

CMS’ solid progress over the years is very much a reflection of Sarawak’s own dynamic progress. As the State moves into a new era of growth with the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), CMS’ expansion path too is moving into a new trajectory to take advantage of the business investment opportunities in energy-intensive industries and their infrastructure and related needs. Given the vast business potential within SCORE and throughout the State of Sarawak, CMS continues to leverage on its healthy balance sheet, local knowledge, an experienced management team, proven strategies and a synergised portfolio of Sarawak-based businesses, to maximise its participation in the Sarawak growth story.

Today, CMS is listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (Bursa Malaysia), the Malaysian stock exchange.

Facilitating Sarawak’s Growth

Sarawak is the largest State in Malaysia comprising 124,450km2 representing 38% of Malaysia’s total land mass. Its long coastline of more than 1,000km is backed up by reserves of oil and gas, and coal, as well as vast hydro energy potential, over 8.0 million hectares of forests, 1.2 million hectares of palm oil plantation and almost 5.0 million hectares of arable land and peat land suitable for agriculture.

With Sarawak entering into a new era of growth spearheaded by the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), CMS will continue to play its role to help Sarawak achieve developed State status by 2030 through its investments and businesses in the energy-intensive industry sector and in the infrastructure, construction materials and other services required by the State.
