Managed Industrial Park – The Next Step Forward
The recently launched of the Selangor Guidelines for Development of Industrial Park based on the concept of Managed Industrial Park will leapfrog the Industrial Park Development in the most preferred industrialised investment state in Malaysia. Among the MIP in Selangor include ECO Business Park V in Puncak Alam, Elmina Business Park in Sungai Buloh as well as UMW High Value Manufacturing (HWM) Park in Serendah.
Given the mushrooming of industrial park development by developer jumping on the bandwagon to open up new industrial park, this guideline is timely as it allows a planned industrial park to be differentiated from a managed industrial park. This latest development augurs well to Industrial Property Investors / Users looking for Industrial Land for Sale or Warehouse / Factory for Sale as well as Warehouse / Factory for Rent.
A Managed Industrial Park (MIP) is a centralized and gated industrial park with proper access control to the industrial park as well as has common area which is managed and maintained by the Industrial Park Manager. A maintenance fee will be imposed on industrial facility owner or tenant which will be deposited into the maintenance account which is set up by the Industrial Park Manager to cover the maintenance cost of the MIP.
The difference between MIP from the ‘normal’ industrial park is the current practice whereby the developer develops the industrial park and surrenders the industrial park to the local authority for maintenance purposes. Hence, the MIP Developer doubles up as the Industrial Park manager to ensure the needs and specifications of the industrial facility owner is catered for in an efficient, effective and systematic manner.
The development of MIP ensures that the industrial park is conducive and duly equipped with complete infrastructure, utilities and supporting amenities such as community centre / business support centre, centralized labour quarters / hostel and perimeter fencing of the industrial park amongst others. This can be achieved via the presence of the MIP to address the overall maintenance of the industrial park.
