MKH Berhad (formerly known as Metro Kajang Holdings Berhad) is an established and respected property developer listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia. Since 1979, MKH has earned a distinguished reputation in improving people’s lives by building good quality homes, while 2008 marked the Group’s foray into oil palm plantation.
Having gained a strong foothold in Kajang for over three decades, MKH has transformed into a Metropolitan developer by venturing into urban circles such as Damansara, Bangsar, Mont Kiara, Shah Alam, Cheras, Petaling Jaya and other parts of Greater Kuala Lumpur. Little did the Group know that it has contributed to the nation by improving the quality of people’s lives through integrated townships, quality developments, and well-designed communities for people to call home. To date, the Group has developed and undertaken more than 30,000 units of mixed development projects with a value exceeding RM12.0 billion.
MKH’s gross development value (GDV) has increased to RM10 billion which offers a vast array of developments ranging from premium residential and commercial properties to affordable dwellings. Some of its on-going and future projects are located adjacent to upcoming Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations.
In its quest for sustainable growth, MKH diversified its business into oil palm plantation in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. While property development and oil palm plantation are MKH’s core businesses, the Group is also involved in investment property, property management, construction, trading and furniture manufacturing to provide maximum synergy and cost efficiency.
MKH has never lost sight on the importance of giving back to the society. In doing so, the Group looks beyond its industry and ad-hoc CSR activities to a holistic approach by engaging stakeholders in education, environment and social issues for long-term sustainability.

The Company’s roots can be traced back to its establishment in 1979. MKH was incorporated in Malaysia as a private limited company on 27 September 1979 under the name of Srijang Bena Sdn. Bhd. The Company later changed its name to Srijang Holdings Sdn. Bhd. and subsequently to Metro Kajang Holdings Sdn. Bhd. On 12 July 1994, it was converted to a public limited company known as Metro Kajang Holdings Berhad which was subsequently listed on the Main Market of the Bursa Malaysia on 18 October 1995.
On 1 April 2011, the Company changed its name to MKH Berhad from Metro Kajang Holdings Berhad. The new corporate name marked a major milestone as it represented MKH’s transformation into an elite, regional brand that is built on more than 36 years of innovation and growth.
Our new name and revamped logo provides us a broader marketplace appeal and scalability that will help us to grow and build long-term brand equity as we begin the next chapter. We are committed to growing our core business in property development while capitalising on new opportunities and building on our strong legacy.
The MKH Berhad brand identity, or logo as it is commonly called, is inspired by one of nature’s most powerful and majestic manifestations – waterfalls.
Powerful cascading waterfalls carry power from their sheer drop. The water power that is constantly moving symbolises creative energy in MKH Berhad. Waterfalls are formed over thousands of years of flow and earth movements, and these symbolise the experience that guides MKH Berhad.
The new MKH Berhad brand identity represents a new chapter in the history of the brand. It symbolises the brand’s commitment to creativity in design and building, guided by, and based on, the vast experience the brand has gained in property development.
The stylised “M” symbol of the visual identity represents the vast resources, experience and positive creative energy flowing in MKH Berhad. The bold strokes are designed to symbolise the solid financial standing and performance of MKH Berhad.
The cyan (light blue) colour of the symbol is the colour of success, while the darker, navy blue of the letters “MKH” represent the professionalism of MKH as a property developer.
