Who We Are
Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad is listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia with a market capitalisation of approximately RM25.5 billion at the end of September 2016.
Started as a plantation company more than 100 years ago, plantations (oil palm and rubber) still lead as KLK’s core business activity. Through various strategic acquisitions and sound management, the group’s plantation land bank now stands at over 268,000 hectares spread across Malaysia, Indonesia and Liberia.
Since the 1990s, the group has diversified into resource based manufacturing (oleochemicals) and vertically integrated its upstream and downstream businesses. The oleochemicals business, KLK OLEO, has rapidly expanded into a leading global oleochemicals producer with manufacturing facilities strategically located in Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.
Subsequent diversification saw the group further capitalising on the strategic location of its land bank in Peninsular Malaysia by branching into property development. Its latest project, the 1000 acres Bandar Seri Coalfields township is located in the vicinity of Sg Buloh, Selangor and will be developed over the next 10 years. This is in addition to the nearby Desa Coalfields and Sierramas projects which have since been completed.
At KLK, we have a workforce of over 40,000 people worldwide supporting our various operations and businesses and we believe that our employees are of paramount importance to our business sustainability.
We put a great deal of emphasis on our human resources. Therefore, we hire people who are dynamic and share our vision and values. If you are prepared for a challenge to work hard, be committed and are willing to learn then we would love to hear from you.
