KUALA LUMPUR: UNISEM (M) BHD is closing its facility in Batam, Indonesia due to persistent losses since 2011.

"The management will be working in phases to scale back the operations ahead of closing the facility in PT Unisem effective Sept 30, 2019," it said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia today.

Unisem’s factory in Batam is a one stop shop facility, which provides wafer probe, wafer backgrinding, assembly packaging, final test, and drop shipment.

The company assembles and tests leaded and array packages on a high volume basis in the 345,000 square feet facility in Batam.

"The decision to discontinue operations in PT Unisem was arrived at due to continuing losses over the years since 2011," it said.

"Despite recent investments the business outlook for PT Unisem continues to be weak," it added.
