The CMS story began in 1974 with the company working to establish the first cement plant in Sarawak. In the 40 years since then, CMS has transformed into one of Sarawak’s and Malaysia’s leading listed companies with a synergistic portfolio of businesses strongly focused on Sarawak and the economic opportunities arising from the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE). This has occurred in tandem with Sarawak’s own transformation from a State very visibly lagging behind the states of Peninsular Malaysia in terms of development into a State with exciting potential for growth – fuelled by its abundant and largely renewable energy resources, its people, its location and its proactive and stable leadership.
Over the course of CMS’ 40-year history, it has achieved many milestones, and played a key role in Sarawak’s physical and economic development. The CMS 40th Anniversary coffee table book, which was launched at the CMS 40th Anniversary Celebration Dinner on 26 November 2014, provides fascinating insights into the rise of CMS and the development of the State of Sarawak in tandem with the growth of the Malaysian economy.
