Innovating to focus on agribusiness

Kulim (Malaysia) Berhad (“Kulim”) traces its history back to 1933 when Kulim Rubber Plantations Ltd was incorporated in the United Kingdom. Kulim was later incorporated as a public listed company, and in 1975 was listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange. A year later, Johor Corporation (“JCorp”) became the major shareholder of Kulim. Kulim then became a wholly-owned subsidiary of JCorp before being delisted in 2016.

With a landbank of 63,158 ha across Malaysia and Indonesia, Kulim continues to generate sustainable growth and profits through innovative approaches and driving digitalisation initiatives across its value chain.

Driven by a workforce of approximately 7,756 employees, we are focused primarily on four core business sectors: Plantation, Agro Farming, Livestock, and Trading & Services.

With 89 years of industry experience, Kulim is now paving its way to be re-listed and strives to position itself to become a leading agribusiness player, whilst tapping into new value creation from the circular economy, committed towards our ESG agenda.
