Dato Dr. Ir.

Serba Dinamik has a humble beginning in 1993 in Bintulu, Sarawak. Its business at that time was as a provider of MRO services for rotating equipment and its very first client was a Fertilizer Plant in Bintulu. Twenty-three years later in 2017, now known as Serba Dinamik Holdings Berhad, Serba Dinamik was converted to a public limited company. It debuted on the Bursa Malaysia Main Market on 8 February 2017 at RM1.50 public offering and since then Serba Dinamik share has jumped to RM 3.35. Its business has expanded to USA, Africa and Middle East thus Serba Dinamik has achieved its vision to be a global company.
