Beckers’ new factory in Malaysia now fully commissioned

Published on 2006-07-05. Author : SpecialChem

Formed only in 1999, Becker Industrial Coatings Malaysia has outgrown its original manufacturing plant and has now successfully commissioned a larger plant of 5500 M2 in Kota Kemuning, Selangor.

The new site was identified in 2004 and a ground breaking ceremony took place on 11 August that year. Just a year later re-location to the new plant started and current utilisation of the new factory stands at over 80% of installed capacity.

Y P Ng, Managing Director, said, "Quality of staff has been key to Beckers' growth and numbers have grown from 5 in 2000 to 55 now, all local Malaysians."

In addition to serving the fast-growing Malaysian coil coatings market, the plant supplies plastic coatings for mobile phones and exports to the burgeoning markets of Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. Beckers is also doing significant coil coatings business in Vietnam and is currently identifying a suitable site for future manufacturing facilities.
