I am preparing to set up a rail track design and consultancy business, registered in Hong Kong but with the design office in Kuala Lumpur (lower cost base).
The business will provide track design and construction consultancy services at a lower cost base (Malaysia), On time delivery and with constructibility in the design (something very often missing). I have 20+ years of experience in railway construction (and Project Management) and my proposed partner has 30+ yrs in track design - a good combination for what we are proposing to offer to the market.
Key markets - Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Potential clients would be Design Consultants, Governments, Private entities and Contractors
Key milestones - Start business in June 13
By end 2017 reach a turnover of USD2M and by end 2020 turnover of USD4M
Staff - 4 no. end 2013 peaking at 15 no. in 2017
Have already written a draft Business Plan but needs more critique and substance (this can be sent under separate mail if required)
