Lee said the capacity expansion is timely for the group to capture the rising demand from customers in domestic and international markets.Some of the SCGM products.
“As the largest thermoform F&B packaging provider in Malaysia, we believe we have a competitive edge in sourcing for new clients particularly in the domestic arena, alongside overseas markets such as New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia.”

For Q3, the group saw its net profit nearly doubling to RM8.1mil from RM4.2mil a year ago, due to higher group revenue and favourable product mix as well as finance expenses and lower operating costs incurred as the group consolidated its Telok Panglima Garang factory to its larger Kulai plant since March 2020.
For Q3, group revenue grew 21.1% year-on-year to RM62.5mil, due to its strong F&B segment performance.
For the nine months under review (9M21), the group saw its net profit grew nearly three-fold year-on-year to RM26mil on the back of favourable sales mix, lower raw material costs and reduced operating and interest expenses.
Revenue for 9M21 grew 12.4% year-on-year to RM180.8mil as a result of higher deliveries of F&B packaging and contributions from the new personal protective equipment segment comprising face masks and face shields.
