SHAH ALAM: ASAP Mobility Sdn Bhd (ASAP Mobility), a system engineering and consultancy company focusing on Railway and Public Transport Systems, has officially rebranded to Nippon Koei Mobility Sdn Bhd - a part of Nippon Koei group, Japan's No. 1 engineering consultant.
This rebrand has set the stage for an exciting new chapter in the company’s journey to greater heights.
In August 2022, Nippon Koei acquired a majority stake in ASAP Mobility. Prior to that, ASAP Mobility had established itself as a prominent player in the field of railway system engineering consultancy, both in Malaysia and internationally, since its inception in November 2013.
The rebranding marks a significant milestone. It positions Nippon Koei Mobility as the first Japanese-owned independent railway and public transport system consultant that brings global expertise to a local market. Nippon Koei Mobility will also serve as the Railway System and Smart Mobility Centre for Nippon Koei. With the rebrand, the company will continue to provide its clients with comprehensive system engineering and consultancy services, while also leveraging on Nippon Koei’s global expertise and resources to offer even more innovative, effective and sustainable solutions.
Nippon Koei Mobility director, president and CEO Aniket Mukhopadhyay said, “This marks a new era and identity for our company. Together with Nippon Koei, we are poised to take our expertise in public transport engineering and consultancy to new heights. This strategic move aligns with our commitment to deliver innovative solutions, harness the power of data, and leverage cutting-edge technology to redefine the future of transportation and urban planning. At the same time, we aim to create exceptional opportunities for Malaysian talents, giving them the opportunity to manage major international projects and gain valuable insights. At Nippon Koei Mobility, we are dedicated to contributing to the growth and development of the Malaysian economy and enhancing the nation’s competency profile in the field of public transport and railway system engineering.”
Nippon Koei Mobility's expertise lies in delivering effective solutions in the critical railway engineering and infrastructure domain, thanks to its team of highly skilled professionals, advanced software, technology, and analytical tools. Beyond traditional consultancy for railway and public transport, the company is committed to supporting the group in embracing Digital Transformation (DX) in public transportation and infrastructure.
Nippon Koei Mobility is also set to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the industry on a global scale.
