Foreigners Setting Up Factories at PKFZ

KLANG: Foreign investors are still setting up factories in the Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) despite the global economic slowdown which poses the management of this integrated industrial and distribution hub with the challenge of having to search for new markets.

Visko Industries Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between Taiwanese and Indonesian companies, has just completed building and will soon commission its plant at the PKFZ.

A self-adhesive tape manufacturer, Visko was reported to have invested RM30mil to set up this plant which has a production capacity of about 35 million sq m a month. Out of this output, about 90% would be exported to South-East Asian countries and the Middle East.
