Juliane Hehl thanked Visu Nagappa, Managing Director of the ARBURG subsidiary in Malaysia, and his team for their enormous commitment and the customers for their long-standing trust in the company. As an expression of thanks for the highly motivated and successful work of the subsidiary, Juliane Hehl presented a special gift to the subsidiary manager in the form of a "25 years of ARBURG Malaysia" anniversary sculpture.

25 successful years
ARBURG's activities in Malaysia began back in 1989 with the sale of the first two ALLROUNDERs. The Malaysian market has developed very well in the intervening years. "The establishment of our own subsidiary in 1992 was a significant milestone and marked an important step towards the successful development of our company in the Asia region," said Gerhard Böhm at the anniversary event.

First class customer support
"Our aim was, and remains, to provide first class and comprehensive local support to our customers in Malaysia," emphasised Gerhard Böhm. The subsidiary was expanded after only four years, doubling the usable space to 2,700 square feet or 250 m². Initially, customers were primarily small family-run businesses that worked with between 10 and 20 machines. Over the past decades, many global players have also invested in Malaysia. Our customers' machine fleets now comprise between 50 and 100 ALLROUNDERs. This enables high-quality plastic parts to be produced for the packaging, medical technology and automotive industries, as well as for the electrical and electronics sector. "Whatever industry they come from, our customers not only appreciate the performance of our high-tech ALLROUNDER machines, but also our comprehensive expertise and extensive service and consulting offerings," said the delighted Director of Sales.
