Unisem’s Ipoh plant impacted by EMCO closure


Unisem said assuming the Ipoh plant is closed for the full duration of the above EMCO period, the capacity loss arising from the closure is about 2% of the group’s total annual output volume.

KUALA LUMPUR: Unisem (M) Bhd expects about 2% of its total annual output volume to be affected as its plant in Pulai Jaya industrial estate has been ordered to shut down for two weeks due to the enhanced movement control order (EMCO).

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the global provider of semiconductor assembly and test service said the announcement was made by the National Security Council (NSC) on July 24 to place the industrial estate under the EMCO from Monday until Aug 8.

“However since Unisem is under the electrical & electronics, essential services sector, the company had applied and appealed to the authorities to be allowed to operate during this EMCO period. Approvals and decisions from the authorities are pending,” it said.

Unisem said assuming the Ipoh plant is closed for the full duration of the above EMCO period, the capacity loss arising from the closure is about 2% of the group’s total annual output volume.

It added the safety and well-being of its employees and local community are always its utmost priority.

It also gave an assurance to the government that it has always and will continue to maintain and adhere to the highest and most stringent Covid-19 preventive standard operating procedures to minimise the spread of the virus.
