Cahya Mata Sarawak (CMS) which when translated to the Malay language means "the light of Sarawak's eye".
The Group grew from a humble beginning as a single product manufacturer of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). Starting in 1974, Cement Manufacturers Sarawak was listed on Malaysian stock exchange in 1989.
In 1994, Cement Manufacturers Sarawak’s business undertook expansion and diversification. Within a few short years, it became Sarawak's largest player in financial services and infrastructure development. Subsequently in 1996, the company's name was changed to Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad.
Since then, CMS has gone on to play a major role in the state of Sarawak's economic development and more.
