Jak Kwang Builders & Developers Sdn Bhd, formerly known as Jak Kwang Electrical Co. Sdn Bhd, was incorporated in 1973 to take over a very successful electrical retail business. The Founder of the Company, Mr. Kho Hong Meng (HM Kho) had been in property development since 1971. Within two decades, HM Kho has built up an impressive record of successfully completing every property development project and repaid all the financier of his projects. He carried on property development under Borneo Ever Bright Sdn Bhd before Jak Kwang commenced its property development business. HM Kho is farsighted and he had never focused his mind totally on quick profits. His principal goal is first and last, the homebuyer’s satisfaction. The major projects undertaken and completed were:
|Project Name||Project Description||Period|
|Star Garden Phase II, off Jalan Green||80 units Terrace and semi detached houses||1971 to 1973|
|Everbright Garden , 3rd Mile Bazaar||96 units Terrace and semi detached houses||1973 to 1975|
|Everbright Estate, Jalan Batu Kawa||118 units Terrace, semi-detached and detached houses||1976 to 1980|
|Everbright Jaya, Kuching-By-Pass||160 units Terrace, semi-detached and detached houses||1980 to 1990|
|Total||454 units||20 years|
In the 90’s, Jak Kwang relinquished its electrical retail business and concentrate on property development. HM Kho has the benefit of his two sons, Mr. Kho Hang Chua and Mr. Kho Hang Cheng to play the key roles. Jak Kwang maintains its firm commitment to excellent development practices. The Kho’s family business-tradition continues. In the process, it provides significant contributions in the field of property development in Kuching. The need to keep up with the market changes has brought Jak Kwang into a new phase in the industry.
Owing to the general population becoming more affluent in Kuching, Jak Kwang ventures into high-end residential development that gives home buyers greater value and satisfaction. This new approach to property development has been met with overwhelming success despite of the recent economic crisis. The development of De Summit Condominium not only creates a landmark in the City of Kuching, it gives its owners unsurpassed values. Jak Kwang will continue to plan properties of higher value, which carries more value-added features to address today’ customers’ need in years to come.
Jak Kwang has been established as one of the most significant residential property owner in Kuching. The key to success of Jak Kwang is its strength of providing better homes. Many repeated sales to past customers are very much associated with the better ability to plan and deliver the much sought after values in home properties.
