Incorporated in 1995, Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor Sdn. Bhd. (KPRJ) is a private limited company wholly owned by the State Government of Johor. Over the years, KPRJ has built a reputation as a major developer in social and infrastructural projects for the state of Johor.
On his meet and greet session with the staff, Menteri Besar Johor Dato’ Osman Bin Haji Sapian who is also the Chairman of KPRJ reminded the workforce to remain dedicated to fulfilling the vision of the current government and to work diligently without compromising the integrity of the organisation.
“In uncertain economic times, we must constantly strive to be dedicated, be free from corruption and come up with new business ideas from time to time for long term gain of the company,” said Osman.
Osman also spoke about rebranding KPRJ to suit with the times and relocating the office to a more conducive workspace.
“We must coin a simpler and more dynamic name and have a corporate logo that is easy to identity and remember. I’ve seen the current office space and it is quite congested and appears hidden from public view so we will be relocating to a bigger space by the first quarter of the year to an office space that has a frontage,” he said.
KPRJ’s office is set to move to Damansara Aliff, a township located between Tampoi and Bandar Baru UDA.
Drawing examples from Genting and Tiong Nam, Osman said KPRJ must look at diversifying their business portfolios and explore venturing into different segments of the industry.
“When we diversify and venture into new businesses, we can attract new investments and garner better market confidence. Maybe KPRJ can eventually become a public listed company,” added Osman.
