Over the last four decades, Penang’s economy experienced rapid growth and structured transformation as a result of the promotion and development of the manufacturing sector. Much of this was driven by export-oriented multinational companies (MNCs) located in PDC industrial parks.
PDC has over the years, successfully developed six (6) industrial parks comprising 5,890 acres. To continue to promote Penang as a location of choice for investors, having sufficient, suitably located land is of paramount importance. Industrial land currently available for booking is located in Penang Science Park and Batu Kawan Industrial Park.
The role of Industry Division includes the processing of sale of industrial land and rental of space at Penang SME centre as well as the management of existing PDC SME projects, which includes sale and rental of ready built factory units.
