GELANG PATAH: Forest City has launched its first Industrialised Building System (IBS) manufacturing plant worth RM470mil located within the mega development here.

The 7.24ha plant, designed for making precast building materials, was built with the latest technology and modern machinery from Italy, Germany and China, said Country Garden Pacificview Sdn Bhd executive director Datuk Md Othman Yusof during the launch on Friday.

“The establishment of this supply chain will be cost effective, efficient and environmentally friendly, which is an apt and timely response to the nation’s call for promoting a green construction industry,” he said. 

Md Othman said the first factory is one of three that would be built in the first phase of the IBS base under the smart and green flagship Forest City.

“The projected cost of the whole IBS base will be RM2.6bil, which will house up to six factories,” he added. 

IBS is a technique where components are made in a controlled environment and assembled into construction works.
