“Banking on our experience in developing highly sought after properties in Negeri Sembilan and Johor, Matrix Concepts seeks to extend our product offerings to communities in the Klang Valley.

The new acquisition in Puchong not only allows us to further tap into Klang Valley’s rapid urbanization and corresponding population growth, but also gives us an affordable entry point to a highly successful township.”
