And Expansion in Malaysia
Oji Group is to establish a new plant in Vietnam and increase production capacity at two existing box plants in Malaysia. Ojitex Haiphong Co., Ltd. operates two plants in northern Vietnam. Demand for corrugated containers is forecasted to increase, mainly from Japanese companies, and so the Oji Group has decided to establish a new plant in Ha Nam Province. Planned commencement of operation is July 2019. The new plant is Oji Group’s fifth corrugated container plant in Vietnam and 30th packaging plant in South East Asia.
Oji Group has eight corrugated container plants in Malaysia (three in the north, three in the central area and two in the south) including one that will start operation in June 2018. Central area is the largest corrugated container market and to strengthen its business Oji Group has decided on a production capacity expansion at two of the three plants in the area – Harta Packaging Industries (Selangor) Sdn. Bhd and Dazun Paper Industrial Company Sdn. Bhd. Both plants will double their production capacities with these investments. Planned commencement of operation is December 2018 (both plants).
