Lintec & Linnhoff says it has increased production at its newest asphalt and concrete batching plant in the Malaysian state of Johor.

The manufacturing facility, which began limited operation in 2021, covers nearly 8,300m² with two expansions planned.

Lintec & Linnhoff is manufacturing Linnhoff asphalt mixing plants and Eurotec concrete batching plants at the factory, which replaces the previous manufacturing site in northeastern Johor. Most of the production is going to customers in South-East Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Plans for the new Malaysia facility were launched in 2019 and work was completed in 2021 after unavoidable interruptions caused by the Covid pandemic, explained Daniel Chan, chairman of Lintec & Linnhoff Holdings.

“Over the past two years, the whole world faced the challenge of COVID and many projects were put on hold. We faced our own roadblocks, but we were determined to bring our vision to life for this new Malaysian factory. Our first plants have already been delivered and the future is very bright,” said Chan.

The factory employs 50 and production can be shipped easily to customers across Asia, the Middle East and Africa via the three nearby ports. The new factory is also only 36km from the Lintec & Linnhoff global headquarters in Singapore.

The current facility is phase one of the planned development for the whole site that covers 26,200m².

Meanwhile, work has already started on the next phase of expansion that will add another 7,140m² of manufacturing area. The company said that the continued expansion is in line with its plans to manufacture Lintec containerised asphalt and concrete plants in the facility. Along with this, there will be further investment in additional equipment for the factory to increase production capacity and efficiency.
