Bostik expands manufacturing capacities at Seremban plant in Malaysia
US-based specialty adhesive producer Bostik expanded production capacities of its cementitious product at its Seremban plant in Malaysia, to meet the growing demand for the product in Sabah and Central and North Malaysian regions.
The company uses Polymer Modified Binder (PMB) technology to manufacture cementitious products at its Seremban plant.
The expansion of the plant will help speciality adhesive producer to strengthen its position in the Malaysian market, as well meet the demands of its construction clients from Kuala Lumpur, North Malaysia and Sabah.
Bostik will be manufacturing ceramic tile adhesives, tile grouts, and levelling compounds at its new extended facility.
Earlier in 2014, Bostik opened its second plant in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, to tap the Southern Malaysia and Singapore markets, while the new expansion reflects on the company's development plans in the country.
The new investment also showcases Bostik's business strategy, as well as develops new products to meet the demand in the growing regions.
Bostik Asia senior vice-president Jeffrey Merkt said: "We are pleased and excited to continue Bostik's global development and, with this capacity expansion, we are strengthening our operations in Malaysia.
"This allows us to respond more quickly to changes in market demand and to continue to supply high-quality products to the construction sector."
With a presence in more than 50 countries, Bostik has annual sales of €1.6bn and employs 4,800 people.
