Kimlun also said its unit SPC, with its strong track record in Singapore, was well positioned to compete for further potential sales orders from future MRT and sewerage projects
SPC supplies tunnel lining segments (TLS) to Singapore MRT projects since 2006. It secured approximately 40% of the total TLS orders of the Downtown Line 2, the on-going Downtown Line 3 and Thomson Line.
SPC has also been a frequent supplier of jacking pipes and IBS components to various projects in Singapore.
Kimlun's net profit for FY18 fell by 10.7% to RM61.14mil from RM68.48mil in FY17 due to lower earnings from the construction and property development though there was an increase in the manufacturing and trading division
