Partnering to bid for futures

“Today I am pleased to announce that Gamuda has chosen to invest in Martinus Rail in what is an exciting opportunity to realise the further growth of our business,” Treaven Martinus, Managing Director of Martinus Rail said.

As of 2nd October 2019, we’ve partnered with Australia’s largest independent specialist rail constructor, Martinus Rail to bid for upcoming projects.

Since Gamuda’s inception in 1976, we’ve had considerable experience in the Malaysian rail sector and have grown to become one of the largest contractors in Malaysia.

Currently, we are a listed company with over 5,000 people and operations across Asia and the Middle East.

 

 

As turnkey contractors, Gamuda is currently delivering the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Line 2. The mega project has 12 Tunnel Boring Machines working through some of the world’s most challenging geotechnical conditions to deliver a 52.2km metro rail system with 35 stations.

“Martinus and Gamuda have complementary strengths in rail infrastructure construction and proud company histories. With the hefty balance sheet and mega-project experience of Gamuda backing us, Martinus Rail is set for a bright future in the rail industry,” Mr Martinus added.
