On The Rails
Emrail started out as a small company designing and manufacturing turnouts for Malayan Railway in 1973 and gradually developed its work scope to include other areas of railway engineering and construction.
It is now one of the largest private railway construction companies in Malaysia with projects locally and abroad.
Emrail got its big break in 1997 when Malaysia started construction of the first metro networks in Kuala Lumpur in preparation for the 16th Commonwealth Games.
Since then, it has delivered over 1,200km of ballasted and unballasted tracks in the region.
Aiming to be the leading railway construction company in Malaysia and regionally, its mission is to provide value engineering services via innovation, continuous improvement and teamwork while maintaining quality and safety to meet customer satisfaction.
