Founded in 1997, our Group is principally involved in the manufacturing and trading of precast concrete products which is based in Malaysia. Our products are largely used for drain, tunnel and retaining wall construction. Drains, tunnels and retaining walls are crucial components in the construction of roads, bridges, underpasses as well as wastewater systems, which are required across all types of construction sub-sectors, be it infrastructure, residential or commercial construction projects.
Our Holding Company, UCI Resources Berhad (UCIRB) (Registration No. 202001015323 / 1371643-X) was incorporated in Malaysia under the Companies Act 2016 as a private company on 24 June 2020, and was subsequently converted to a public company. Our Company is principally an investment holding company. Through our wholly-owned subsidiaries, Utama Concrete Industries Sdn Bhd (UCI) and UCI Marketing Sdn Bhd (UCIM), we are principally involved in the manufacturing and supply of precast concrete products.
UCI’s products are SIRIM and ISO 9001:2015 certified and largely used for drain, tunnel and retaining wall construction. Drains, tunnels and retaining walls are crucial components in the construction of roads, bridges, underpasses as well as wastewater systems, which are required across all types of construction sub-sectors, be it infrastructure, residential or commercial construction projects.
The history of the Company can be traced back to the establishment of UCI in 1997 by our Executive Director, Yeap Bun Huat. We have been operating from our present head office in Taman TTDI Jaya, Shah Alam and our existing manufacturing site located in Bestari Jaya, Kuala Selangor since inception.
Since the start of our business, we have been manufacturing and supplying Box Culverts, U-drains, L-shapes and complementary precast concrete products for use across all types of construction sub-sectors.
In 2000, our Box Culverts, which is one of our main precast concrete products we manufacture, was certified by SIRIM, indicating that our product meets the local structural requirements to uphold structures.
Between 2000 and 2010, we continued to secure orders of precast concrete products for the construction of several roads as well as commercial and residential projects.
Recognising the anticipated prospects of our Group in the precast concrete industry in Malaysia, our present Managing Director, Liew Thiam Leong (who was then a Non-Executive Director) acquired a majority equity interest in UCI in 2010. Liew Thiam Leong identified UCI to be an ideal platform to leverage on his vast experience in the precast concrete and construction industries, having founded and led a public listed company which was principally involved in, amongst others, piling activities and the production of precast concrete square piles for the construction industry. His leadership and management experience were key in developing our Group’s precast concrete business into what it is today.
Through Liew Thiam Leong’s leadership, we began to secure orders of precast concrete products for high-profile construction projects such as supply for the KLIA2 project from 2011-2014, KLMRT from 2013 – 2016 and many national highway projects such as the the East Klang Valley Expressway (“EKVE”) and Sungai Besi – Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (“SUKE”) in 2017, as well as the West Coast Expressway (“WCE“) in 2020.
