The Managing Director's Message

As Managing Director of Ace Empire, I am extremely proud of all we've accomplished thus far. From meticulously planned urban developments' to highly sought after commercial and industrial projects, each step has been exciting, rewarding, challenging, and a learning experience that we have collectively inherited.

As a local Gelang Patah boy, I'm exceptionally familiar with Nusajaya and its surroundings. For more than 60 years, my family has built its business here and expanded it throughout Johor. As Iskandar Malaysia continues to flourish, Ace Empire is perfectly positioned to offer prime developments that reap the rewards of this strategic economic zone.

Going forward, we will continue to follow our motto - "we make every space extraordinary", because at Ace Empire, we strive to create extraordinary developments that shatter convention and sets us apart from other developers. As such, our Tebrau Waterfront project is the first marina project in the Tebrau township. By keeping our finger on the pulse, we are able to identify key trends in the real estate world as we offer innovative ideas that defy conventions.

It is our goal to continue this exceptional journey to becoming a world-class real estate company and the developer of choice. We shall achieve these objectives by having a total commitment to our belief that integrity is the essence of everything successful. We understand that we can only sustain our success and grow if we are trusted by our partners and stakeholders.

As we continue to embark on a journey of more success, I believe that our strong commitment to integrity, quality and innovation will ensure that Ace Empire will continue to strengthen in the marketplace.

I would like to ask for your unstinted support and encouragement in our endeavor to create a brighter, more prosperous future.
