One of Malaysia’s top property developers, Mah Sing Group, celebrates yet another big win as it garnered the prestigious 2015 Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Growth Building Construction Industry Award recently. The award recognises companies for superior leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development within regional and global markets.

With 21 solid years in the property market, Mah Sing certainly has its finger firmly on the pulse of the volatile market. According to Frost & Sullivan’s research associate, Harpreet Kaur, Mah Sing’s effective business model and efficient strategies have translated into robust results and a strong market presence.

“Mah Sing has solidified its position as a leading developer with its continuous growth despite challenging construction market conditions in 2014,” she says.

Mah Sing’s remarkable aptitude for versatility is not only clear in its successful transition from a plastic trading and manufacturing firm – which remains strong and has expanded to Indonesia – but also evident in its wide range of development in the property industry that appeal to a diverse audience that showcase contemporary lifestyles without foregoing elements of quality and function.

“Mah Sing is set to achieve and sustain growth with its ability to respond quickly to new business opportunities with the aid of its market driven strategies,” Harpreet adds.

Recognising the force behind it all

Amid the company’s aggressive approach and robust results, Mah Sing does not lose sight of the driving force behind its successes. As the second largest listed developer by sales in Malaysia, Mah Sing’s workforce consists of over 800 people of diverse ages, nationalities, ethnicities and background.

The company offers more than just a job, says Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum, its group managing director and group chief executive:

“At Mah Sing, we are looking to build your career and help you grow with the company. With 48 projects deployed across Malaysia, 37 of which are on-going, there is an abundance of learning opportunities for employee growth and development.”

Mah Sing’s director of organisational development, Peter Ling, further elaborates that, “We are genuinely committed to attracting talents, developing its people and retaining its people, because human capital is the driving force of a successful company.”

To create a conducive work environment, Mah Sing places great value in continuous learning, rewarding performance and loyalty, not to mention a little fun and camaraderie.

All employees are given the chance to improve via training programmes, workshops and interactive sessions. Employees can also partake in various activities outside of work such as weekly yoga classes, bowling tournaments, family days and community sports.

A win-win for the company and employees

It is no surprise then that the company has been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in Malaysia and Asia by industry critics and experts.

Ling also says that at Mah Sing the “work environment is constantly updated to provide employees with the optimum tools to perform their well at their jobs”.

Reaping the results from that approach, Mah Sing continues to be a strong player in the property market in prime locations not only in the Klang Valley, but also in the northern and southern region, as well as in Sabah.

Showing no signs of slowing down, Mah Sing already has a multitude of impressive projects in the pipeline, from executive suites, a township, resort condominiums, gated homes to serviced residences in strategic key locations.

With a string of exciting projects on the way, including Festival Lakecity in Puchong which is an integrated development; Ferringhi Residence 2 in Penang (resort condominiums within a gated-guarded community); and Bandar Meridin East in Johor Baru (gated double-storey link homes, there is immense opportunity for employees to continue to grow with the company.

And as Mah Sing expands its mark across the country, it also opens its doors to potential employees that are just as passionate about growth and development.

The Mah Sing experience

There is a wealth of information and experience that the company has to share with its employees. This is what excites me as an employee, as each and every day brings with it a new challenge, a new learning and a new experience.

You will need to push yourself to perform to the best.

Teams work together fluidly and supportively to achieve common objectives, a key element to one’s working experience in any company.

Granted that Mah Sing is well-known for its fast-paced environment, it also places equal importance on the development of its people.

There is no shortage of opportunities here, given its breadth of diversified projects.

Never a dull moment in Mah Sing

The key factor that encouraged me to join Mah Sing is that it is a reputable fast-paced company and there is always something to look forward to.

The company started out with residential products to industrial to commercial, and now we have several integrated developments in the pipeline.

Mah Sing’s events are always exciting; the launch at Lakeville Residence was graced by the Miss Malaysia Tourism delegates, a talk at D’Sara Sentral by Mahmood Abdul Razak from MRT Corp and a weekend event that collaborated with Mini Cooper at Icon City!

In my five years with Mah Sing, I was given the golden opportunity to grow with the company with wide exposure throughout the country and overseas, and successfully acquiring new projects namely Meridin @ Medini in Iskandar Malaysia, Sutera Avenue in Kota Kinabalu, Lakeville in Taman Wahyu and Festival City in Puchong.

My team and I have gained new knowledge and experience in both technical and marketing as there are never two projects or products that are the same.

The company is always quick to adapt to market trends and cater for the needs in each locality.
