STRENGTHS OF THE ARK GROUP
The new management team comprises a pool of dedicated, capable and experienced engineers, QS and other professionals. The change in shareholder, new set of management team is transforming the ex-Lankhorst into a construction company of repute with local and international exposure. In this regard various measures and efforts have been undertaken which has resulted in our order book being in excess of RM 500 million currently. The present major project for the Ark Group is the design and construction of 7,500 units of low-cost homes for the National Housing Authority of Thailand (NHA).
Apart from our people strengths, we have also invested in various construction related equipment and machineries particularly those relating to rail track works such as tamping machines, ballast regulator, rail gantries, locomotive and wagon. This is to ensure that not only are we able to commit the right expertise to a project but also the right tools and equipment.
Our expertise in the rail works has been recognized both locally and internationally. In this regard, we have been invited by the Malaysian Government to participate in a consortium to conduct a feasibility study for a rail system in Iran and also invited to tender for the Makkah-Madinah high speed rail project.
With a new lease of life and sizeable book orders, Ark Group has put forward proposals to the Securities Commissions for a Group restructuring and fund raising exercise. This will further strengthen Ark Group’s position and help it in achieving its mission of being the contractor of choice.
With its credentials and experience together with the expertise in hand, Ark Group can be of great service in undertaking any type of projects particularly in the railway related industry successfully.
