It is strategically located only 20km away from the state's capital City of Kota Kinabalu and only 7km from the deep sea container port at Sepangar Bay.
Only light to medium scale industries are allowed to operate at KKIP.
All the land sold in KKIP is complete with standard infrastructures such as road, drainage, telecommunication cable and dedicated power supply.
Investors and entrepreneurs have the option to either buy the empty lots of land and construct their own building or purchase a ready-built factory unit constructed by KKIP Sdn. Bhd. specially tailored for industrial or manufacturing activities.
All the companies in KKIP are required to obtain approval from the Department of Environment before operating their businesses at the Park. This is to ensure that sound environmental practices are observed.
