Sukano Opens Production Plant in Malaysia
Sukano, manufacturer of specialty masterbatches and compounds, headquartered in Schindellegi, Switzerland, officially opens the company’s new production facility in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in March 2009. Last year an 8,200sm manufacturing site was established in the industrial zone "Kawasan Perindustrian Jalan Hasil". The facility on this site includes a 2,700sm of production area, 17,000sm of warehousing space and 600sm of office space. With this investment in Malaysia, the company is significantly strengthening its market position in the Far East, and on which it will continue to build. Clients of the Asia- Pacific region and the Far East were previously supplied from Sukano in Switzerland. They will now be supplied from Johor Bahru, including those clients in Australia and New Zealand. The new plant produced its first kilogram in December 2008 and the official opening will be celebrated on March 6th 2009.
