Arburg commemorates 30 years in Malaysia; over 1,000 machines sold

Having started off with just two machines in Malaysia 30 years ago, German machinery company Arburg today claims success with more than 1,000 machines having been installed. It recently celebrated an important milestone of its subsidiary’s presence in Malaysia with its 30th anniversary.

The focus of the anniversary celebration was the presentation of the Gestica control on a hybrid injection moulding machine Allrounder 570 H. The Gestica control has "smart" assistance functions that actively support the customer and Arburg says “it has met with great interest among customers”.

The more than 100 guests invited to the celebration were able to see the benefits of the Gestica machine control system for themselves in the showroom and then celebrated the anniversary in Oktoberfest style.

Visu Nagappa, Branch Manager Arburg Malaysia, David Chan, Managing Director Arburg ASEAN, and Ruben Sander, Director Operations Arburg ASEAN, expressed their gratitude for the trust and support from customers and employees.

Hans-Günther Zimmermann, Senior Sales Manager Asia/Africa, conveyed congratulations on behalf of the German Arburg headquarters. David Chan had this to say to the employees: "We would like to celebrate and sincerely thank you for your support and service to our customers over the past 30 years.

Arburg Malaysia's activities began in 1989 with the sale of two Allrounders. In the early days, its customers were still supported via a trading partner. Due to the good trend in the market, Arburg opened its own subsidiary already in 1992.

Four years later, the subsidiary moved to new premises, doubling the usable area to 250 sq m and making it possible to expand the range of services. Today, over 1,200 Allrounder injection moulding machines are in operation in Malaysia.

The subsidiary offers its customers an expert hotline, a spare parts warehouse, a 160 sq m showroom with an Allrounder for trials with customer moulds, and a wide range of courses and seminars.

In addition, there is a sub-branch in Penang, which also covers sales, service, applications and spare parts.
