Jurutera Minsar Consult Sdn Bhd was initially established in 1985 in Sarawak as Minconsult (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd. A joint venture with Minconsult Sdn Bhd of Kuala Lumpur was subsequently established to ensure that full staff strength and technical backup could be provided on most engineering projects undertaken by the firm during the initial stages. The firm has been active since its inception and considering the growth of its staff strength and experience gained as an independent consultant firm over the years, the firm was re-structured in 1993. All of its shares are now held by Sarawakian Engineers with the majority being owned by Bumiputras. In order to reflect its new identity as a totally independent Consultant Firm, the name was changed to Jurutera Minsar Consult Sdn Bhd, in short “Minsar”, in 1993.
