16 Dec 2022
Vinda Southeast Asia (Vinda SEA), a unit of Hong Kong-listed Vinda International Holdings Ltd, has opened its new regional hub in Bandar Bukit Raja, Selangor.
Vinda SEA president Su Ting Nee said the investment of over RM600 million to set up the hub represented the company’s commitment to Malaysia.
“With the new Vinda SEA Regional Hub, we anticipate our regional production capacity will increase by 20 per cent. We will also be developing an additional 20-acre (8.09 hectare) site in the future,” Su said today.
Local talent development would be prioritised, said Su, adding that the new facility currently housed over 1,400 staff with 99 per cent of them belonging to the local community.
The regional hub will serve over 25 markets and employed concepts of Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0).
The site comprises a double-storey manufacturing plant with raw material warehouse, an automated finished goods warehouse, a distribution centre, the Vinda Innovation Centre, and a six-storey management block.
The company said it had enhanced effectiveness at every stage of the supply chain and boosts efficiency while simultaneously reducing the costs of production.
Vinda SEA also said it would be investing heavily in training to upskill its workforce and vendors to meet the requirements of the new technologies.
The 12.14 hectare site has incorporated green features and is ecologically sound, with minimal environmental impact and carbon footprint.
Vinda SEA has pledged to be net zero carbon by 2025.
