MSM suspends Johor sugar refinery operations for two months

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd has announced a temporary production shutdown of its refinery at MSM Sugar Refinery (Johor) Sdn Bhd (MSM Johor) for two months, effective March 31.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the sugar producer said the move is to enable the rectification of MSM Johor’s boiler following a breakdown.

Upon completion, the plant is expected to be able to achieve its targeted utilisation factor by the third quarter of this year.

"During the temporary production shutdown, the company shall utilise its available refined sugar stocks in MSM Johor, supported by the production from MSM Prai Bhd’s refinery for supply to the domestic and export markets,” it said.

It added that these measures are expected to have no material impact on the company’s operations.
