Moving Malaysia for over 20 years

Present in Malaysia for over 20 years, Alstom takes pride in creating liveable space through the delivery of smart and efficient mobility solutions covering urban and airport systems to signalling. The Group’s presence began on the Kuala Lumpur Sri Petaling and Ampang Lines – the country’s first turnkey project in 1992. Since then, our mobility portfolio has expanded to include the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Kelana Jaya LRT Line to support the 1998 Commonwealth Games. 

As a committed long-term partner and to develop the local rail expertise, Alstom continues to invest in production facilities and workforce training within Malaysia. We carry out the final assembly and interior fit-out for the Innovia metro fleet, in delivery for the Kelana Jaya Line, at the Westport facility. Besides offering on-the-job training, we also partner with key industry players in developing local expertise, such as through the Institute of Railway Signal Engineers’ licensing of engineers and technicians in Malaysia, supervised by the Technology Depository Agency Berhad.
