SIME Darby Property Bhd is setting the benchmark for future industrial and commercial projects at the Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0 (MVV2.0) through the development of the XME Business Park in Nilai Impian, Negri Sembilan.
Acting group CEO Datuk Wan Hashimi Albakri said the XME Business Park would be the first managed industrial park in Negri Sembilan, a collaborative effort involving various parties, especially the state government and Sime Darby Property.
With a gross development value of RM520 million, the 28ha industrial park will focus on value-enhancing features for long-term sustainability, including versatile designs, comprehensive 24-hour security features and good accessibility.
The XME Business Park’s distinctive features include its highly strategic location, which can be described as an industrial economic gateway. Situated next to the North-South Expressway — one of the country’s busiest highways — the business park is set to give the maximum business impact.
“Since the park’s soft launch in December last year, interest has poured in from different industries, including logistics and warehousing, food and beverage (central kitchens), engineering, food processing and packaging, and metal fabrication.
“So far, just a month since the launch, more than half of the first phase has been taken up,” he said in his speech at the XME Business Park groundbreaking ceremony yesterday which was officiated by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.
Wan Hashimi said the XME Business Park, which will have 149 units, would be developed in two phases and was expected to attract investments valued at RM500 million.
