History and Business

The Directors’ active involvement in engineering activities can be dated back to their earlier engineering company registered in 1976 known as Golden Star Engineering Works operating in a modest workshop of about 9,000 sq. ft. in floor area along Jalan Lorong Pandan, 75200, Melaka.

 Its activities then were confined to fabrication of simple engineering structures and duplication of components and parts to service the needs of the imported machinery and equipment used in construction, rubber processing, plywood, palm oil and other manufacturing industries.

 After gaining a firm foothold in the industry, the said partnership was converted to Golsta Sdn Bhd (130958-H) (“GSB”) in 1984 to consolidate its management and manufacturing base and to meet with the increasing varying needs of clients. At this juncture, GSB began to gain recognition as a leading engineering contractor with fabrication and installation capabilities in completing fast-track projects on schedule, cost-effectively with good quality.

In early 1994, the GSB went through a major structural change in operation by moving to a new factory premise with a land area of about 51,000 sq. ft and built up area of 35,000 sq. ft located at Lot 3-4, Kawasan Perindustrian Cheng, Malacca.

 GSB then further integrated its engineering activities to manufacture machine and equipment on “Design, Manufacture and Install” basis for SMR rubber, animal feedmill and related industries catered for multi-national corporation and overseas market and emerged as one of market leaders in the industry.

 To coincide with the rapid growth of the industry, in 1997 GSB further expanded its factory capacity by acquiring two more industrial lots near its existing factory premise with a total land area of about 400,000 sq. ft and built up area of 140,000 sq. ft at a total cost of about RM12 million to house the “state-of the-art” engineering facilities

Over the years, the Group places strong emphasis on product/service quality, productivity and effectiveness of the overall operational systems by investing substantially in the “state-of-the-art” manufacturing plant and machinery and continuous human resource development in order to enhance its competitive advantages in the increasing competitive international market. To boost the profitability and earnings base, the Group also undertakes higher-end and/or higher margin projects with increasing engineering complexity.
