ABOUT US

City Motors Group was established in 1965, then the sole distributor of the famed Italian automobile, Alfa Romeo in Malaysia. Within a very short span of time, the Alfas began to make significant inroads into our local automotive arena. Even our Police Force owned fleets of Alfas then.

This success spurred the Group to diversify into other businesses; plantations, aquaculture, medi-care and property development being the major interests.

 

 

Property development has been the major focus of the Group for the past 30 years. Its record of development projects spans from building townships, landed properties, commercial units and condos in Selangor, Federal Territory, Perak, Singapore and Hong Kong.

OUR HISTORY

Our corporate story began when the distinct roar of the Alfa Romeo first punctuated the Malaysian auto scene in the 60’s. We were then the sole distributor of the famed Italian machine in Malaysia.

 

It did not take us long to endear the Romeos to the hearts of Malaysians. Even our Royal Police fell for them. Success, people say, does not come on a platter; we knew precisely what Malaysians want out of a car; we vocalised the loud, wide and clear and the Alfas actualised them. The Italian makers were gleefully delighted and quickly declared that outside of Italy, the Malaysian distributor, City Motors delivered the most significant market share and penetration amongst its distributors across the globe.

 

Spurred on by the success in the automotive arena, our Company ventured forth into other sectors of the economy. The Group’s stable of business interests ranges from Plantation, Aquaculture, Medi-care to Property Development. Our mosaic of interests share a common thread – a zealous disposition and a burning desire to truly know and understand our customers’ needs before we begin to build the product or service packages for them. In building multi-storey homes, for instance, we pride ourselves to be the first to install a lift in a five-storey building whereas others consider this as a walk-up apartments. In the same spirit, we pioneered the semi-d concept in high rise condos, a more costly option but provides for more efficient ventilation, an enhanced aesthetics and ambience.

 

We have grown into a conglomerate today, with business interests in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. But we have not forgotten the strong tradition of corporate social responsibility initiated by our forefathers. Foo yet Kai & Sons, a pioneer of the Malaysian tin-mining industry has established the Foo Yet Kai Foundation in the early 60’s for the purpose. Shen Jai Secondary School in Ipoh bears the name of the grandfather. The Foundation also donated a classic building to the Franciscan Sisters to operate the first charitable private hospital in Ipoh. This tradition of giving back to society is still very much alive today and will always be.

 

Looking back, we have come a long way. Looking ahead, our journey has just begun. Our group has set high goals for the future. We have a good stock of lands, strategically located in the Federal Territory, Selangor and Perak, Penang and Singapore. Beyond bricks and mortar, we are focused and ear-marked in building on our reputation as a builder of the best possible homes for Malaysians. We have the capital, both human and financial, the experience and an unwavering will to succeed in what we have set out to do. We have the track record of success behind us. Your foot prints are all over the trail of our success and indeed, we look towards you, our customers, for support in our journey ahead.

OUR VISION

With the diversified business conglomerates in property development, land bank, oil palm plantations, health-care centres, aqua-cultures, medical-and-social and education-and-social: synchronised by our human capital (In human resources and resourcefulness) we have the resilience to spearhead into our core business of property development to a pragmatic and authentic outstanding deliverables. With the favourable business environment and a suitable choice of projects a wide circle of repeat buyers and clients for our products such as our condos, apartments, shop lots and landed residence houses, these past years, our group once again steps up to deliver outstanding results.

OUR MISSION

It is our endeavour that has taken us more than half a century to still deliver excellence in all our undertakings to strive for greater productivity and greater height.
