Knusford Bhd (known as Wengcon Group) started its business in 1989 at a Felda palm oil estate know as Sahabat Comples In Lahad Datu, Sabah. Realising the potential for an extensive network of roads to sevice the 116,000 hectares estate, the company offered their expertise to operate a quarry inside Sahabat Complex on behalf of Felda. The business involved rental of a full set of quarry equipment and ancillary machinery as well as providing the workers to operate the quarry. Transportation was also provided to distribute the quarry products to the varied schemes within Sahabat Complex for maintenance of existing roads and construction of new roads.
Today, Knusford has transformed from a quarry equipment rental company to one, which can be considered a "one stop" centre to service Construction, Oil & Gas, Marine, Agriculture and other industry. Equipment that the company rent includes excavators, bulldozers, wheel loaders, cranes, lorries, generators sets, compressors, welding set etc… Currently the company rental equipment fleet has a total number of about two thousand units.
The reconditioning business of Knusford has also made tremendous progress.
