HEXAGON Holdings Bhd, through its wholly-owned subsidiaries Polymer Composite Asia Sdn Bhd (PCA) and Hexagon Shop System Sdn Bhd (HSS) has become an active solution provider to clients in the petrol retail sector.
Hexagon now has a total of four regional contracts with the world's leading petroleum companies.
PCA, a manufacturer of fibreglass products and visual signage systems, has just extended its seven-year relationship with Shell International Petroleum by another three years to manufacture and supply visual signage systems for Shell petrol stations in the East Zone or Asia Pacific region.
The company has also secured a three-year contract from another major petroleum company to manufacture and supply visual signages for its petrol retail stations in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Japan.
HSS has two regional contracts for the provision of shop fittings to the convenience stores of the petrol retail stations.
It has a three-year contract with Shell for its East Zone region, and its long-standing contract with a major petroleum company for its petrol stations in Guam, Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand has been extended for another year.
Hexagon group managing director Jason Tan said: “The contracts are testimony that Malaysian companies are competent, competitive and capable of meeting the high and exacting standards demanded by multinational clients.”
Hexagon is a regional based industrial engineering group with operational and infrastructural support centres in Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia and China.
To enhance the value of its international customers, it is evaluating plans to set up infrastructural support centres in Pakistan, India and Vietnam.
Hexagon offers specialist services from design, manufacture, construction and maintenance to its customers in the semiconductor, oil and gas, power generation, water treatment, telecommunication, chemical and pharmaceutical sectors.
Tan said the group was well positioned as a regional player and this would help broaden its market base and increase exports of its made-in-Malaysia products overseas.
It was poised to meet its goals more effectively and the addition of new long term contracts from the major petroleum companies demonstrated that the group's overseas expansion efforts were now bearing definitive results.
