Press Release: Johor Attracts RM800 Million Investment From US Firm

T Industrial Park in Johor celebrated full take-up for three of its nine phases, driven by  RM800 million investment by the US-based Alton Industry Ltd Group. 

Positioned as Pontian’s primary industrial hub, T Industrial Park will house the Alton  Intelligent Super Factory, with a planned investment of RM2 billion in the coming years.

The development benefits from T Industrial Park’s prime connectivity, with proximity to  the Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Sungai Pulai bridge, and mature land and sea transport  logistics. 

Petaling Jaya (17 October 2023) – T Industrial Park celebrated full take-up for three of its nine phases, covering a total of 572.2 acres, driven by a substantial RM800 million investment by  the US-based appliances supplier Alton Industry Ltd Group (“Alton”). Positioned as Pontian’s  primary industrial hub, T Industrial Park will be home to the Alton Intelligent Super Factory,  with a planned investment of RM2 billion in the coming years. 

The development benefits from T Industrial Park’s prime connectivity, with proximity to the  Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Sungai Pulai bridge, as well as mature land and sea transport  logistics. Karen Lee, Managing Director of T Industrial Park Sdn Bhd, shared more on the  milestone. 

“T Industrial Park is one of the largest industrial zones in Johor. Its strong take-up is a  testament to the Group’s unique development DNA with an emphasis on facilities,  connectivity and more. We welcome partners such as Alton Industry Ltd Group, and look  forward to similar collaborations in the future,” she said. 

In its initial phase, Alton Industry Ltd Group has allocated RM800 million for the construction  of the Alton Intelligent Super Factory. Its investment into the development will comprise its  principal overseas manufacturing base. The plant will support its track record in the  development, production and sale of aerodynamic and cleaning equipment, automotive  parts, garden pneumatic tools, intelligent robots and more. In addition, it will establish a  satellite research & development building in Malaysia, towards developing advanced  technologies and expertise in the region. Alton Industry Ltd Group’s comprehensive  investment in Malaysia, particularly in T Industrial Park, marks a substantial commitment over  the next few years. 

Occupying an expansive area, its investment in T Industrial Park is divided into three phases.  The initial phase comprises 45.2 acres in the development’s 220.8-acre Phase 1, which has  been fully taken up to date. The second and third phases of Alton Industry Ltd Group’s  investment span 109.4 acres and 245.0 acres respectively. In an earlier media statement,  Investment, Trade and Industry Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz welcomed Alton Group’s global expansion with the significant investment for a facility in Johor  Baru, which is expected to be completed in 2024, thus underlining confidence in the country’s  attractiveness as an investment destination. 

T Industrial Park is poised to play a pivotal role in realising the government’s vision of  attracting more investment to Malaysia and creating numerous growth opportunities,  underscoring its robust pull factors. These include a prime connectivity profile with proximity  to the newly completed Sungai Pulai Bridge reducing travel time between Pontian and the  Port of Tanjung Pelepas, the world’s 15th busiest container port for worldwide cargo  shipment. 

In addition, its strategic location near the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link facilitates traffic to  Tuas and the Jurong East industrial area in Singapore, while offering competitive freight transit  costs via sea routes to North American and European markets. To ease traffic congestion of  the Singapore Causeway and improve the daily commute for its passengers, Singapore rail  operator SMRT and Malaysian public transport firm Prasarana collaborated to build and  operate the Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link. Construction on the RTS  Link is progressing well and is now 52 per cent on schedule. The Link will be fully completed  by September 2026 and operations are expected to begin in December of the same year. 

T Industrial Park is well-positioned to leverage on increased investor appetite and cross border interest amid discussions on a dedicated special economic zone and potential revival  of the Kuala Lumpur Singapore High Speed Rail (“HSR”) project.
