KUALA LUMPUR: Hup Seng Industries Bhd has temporarily suspended operations at one of its units in Batu Pahat until Sept 30 to disinfect the entire premises.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, it said that Hup Seng Perusahaan Makanan (M) Sdn Bhd (HSPM) received a notice on Sunday from the Health Ministry (MOH) to temporarily suspend its operations.

HSPM is cooperating and working closely with the MOH and taking mitigating steps to contain the spread of Covid-19 at the premises to safeguard the safety and well-being of our employees, it said.

“The temporary suspension of operations is expected to result in loss of production volume estimated to be approximately 3% of the total annual production volume of the group,” it said.
