The foundations for Ireka Corporation Berhad were laid on 1 January 1967 when Syarikat Lai Siew Wah was registered to perform general earthmoving works. Since then, the Company grew to become one of Malaysia construction-based companies, with the capability to undertake the construction of roads, expressways, bridges, interchanges, flyovers, public utility works, high-rise towers and specialised building works. The Company was then known as Ireka Construction Berhad. The Company is permitted by the Malaysian Authorities to bid for and undertake construction of public projects. The Company assumed its present name, Ireka Corporation Berhad, on 22 September 2000 to better reflect its scope of business today. Ireka Corporation Berhad is now engaged in construction, property development, hospitality and leisure and e-commerce through its subsidiary companies, and has been listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) since 12 July 1993.
