We look back with pride and are proud of the journey that Salcon has embarked on; from our humble beginnings as a private limited  company with its main stream business in water treatment and domestic water supply for palm oil mills and workers, swimming pools and selling engineering  equipment in 1974 to a company that has  diversified businesses in water and wastewater engineering, property development as well as technology services. We have grown in strength throughout the years.
