Tremco Construction Products Group Asia Pacific (CPG APAC) recently signed confirmation of a new manufacturing facility that will begin construction in November 2020. The news comes as the company commemorates 25 years of business operations in Malaysia.
Tremco CPG APAC is a subsidiary of USA-based Tremco Inc. and provides solutions from several world leading construction brands consisting of Tremco, illbruck, Flowcrete, Vandex, Nullifire, Dryvit, Nudura, NewBrick, Willseal and Euclid Chemical. Product lines include high-performance silicone and urethane joint sealants, waterproofing solutions, trafficable deck coatings, expansion joints, exterior insulation and finish systems, passive fire protection, and specialist resinous flooring solutions.
Located 38 kilometers north of Kepong where the current plant resides, the new facility will be situated in the heavy industrial zone of UMW High Value Manufacturing Park in Serendah, Malaysia, and was chosen because of its accessibility to other Asia Pacific markets via Malaysia’s major port network.
Plans for the new Serendah facility show an expansion of production capacity, catering for the predicted growth of Tremco CPG APAC and ensuring undisrupted supply to construction projects across the region for many more years to come.
“The new facility will be three times larger than our existing facility and will strengthen our foothold in the Asia Pacific market. We are seeing an increase in demand across the region for locally produced and innovative construction solutions that improve the built environment, and we’re excited to be a leading supplier for this developing market,” says Jackson Kho, South East Asia Area Director for Tremco CPG APAC.
APAC Managing Director, Saptak Roy, echoed this point saying, “As ASEAN is projected to become the 4th largest economy in the world, our investment in the region will help us to keep up with demand, and continue to deliver excellence to our customers.”
Aside from exporting its products to most ASEAN countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam, the Serendah facility also exports to other countries including South Korea, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Australia, India and the Middle East.
Update: Due to the Malaysian Government's MCO initiative in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, construction was delayed until March 2021.
