Royal seal of approval for Group First global

Property developers Group First have been given the royal seal of approval after their first year of trading in Malaysia.

Group First has been awarded the Selangor Business Excellence Award for International Investment 2014.


Representatives from the Lancashire-based company’s two Malaysian offices were presented with the award by the King of Malaysia at a prestigious ceremony last month.

The Padiham-based property developer has offices in countries across the globe, including Japan, Russia, Canada, UAE and Singapore.

Last month, Group First celebrated its one-year anniversary in Malaysia, where it has international bases in both Kuala Lumpur and Kuching.


Group First managing director Toby Whittaker said: “Accolades like this really put Group First on the map and I’m delighted with the work our international team has been doing over the past 12 months in Malaysia.

“Our network of employees, agents and sellers work hard to deliver premium products to investors and customers alike, so to be recognised at such a high level on a global scale is a real feather in our cap.

“It’s a great way to end 2014 with plenty of exciting new products and developments in the pipeline for 2015.”
