Individuals registering at the Pikas centre at the Flex factory in Bukit Minyak.

FLEX, a manufacturer with operations in 30 countries, has opened its Bukit Minyak facility in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, for use as an industrial vaccination centre.

The facility is expected to welcome about 13,500 employees from Flex as well as 90 other factories in the vicinity for the Public-Private Partnership Covid-19 Industry Immunisation Programme (Pikas).

The Flex Pikas Vaccination Centre can accommodate up to 1,000 people a day.

The manufacturer has also offered its own employees to help coordinate the process, carrying out tasks and jobs that do not require trained medical personnel.

As one of the largest employers of people with disabilities in Malaysia, the company has assigned employees who know basic sign language to help the hearing-impaired at the centre.

Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow visited the centre recently.

On hand to receive him was Flex operations vice-president Viswanathan Paramasivam and Flex Penang general manager Tang Eng Chok.

Flex, an American-Singaporean multinational electronics contract manufacturer, delivers technology innovation, supply chain and manufacturing solutions to diverse industries and end-markets.

Established in Malaysia in 1990, Flex has 11 facilities in Penang, Selangor and Johor with combined space of 371,612sq m and employs more than 18,000 people in the country.
