A big step for AT&S in completing 10,000 piles

MALAYSIA, Kedah, March 8  AT&S Malaysia celebrated the completion of 10,000 piles for its greenfield project in the Kulim Hi-Tech Park Phase 4, on 23 February 2022. The success is attributed to the enormous team effort contributed by both AT&S and Exyte, the Project Manager.

The construction for AT&S Malaysia‘s manufacturing facility commenced in November 2021. A total of 15,600 piles are needed for the foundational work for Phase 1 that comprises of 2 production, 1 administration, and 10 annex buildings. 5,600 piling works remain to be completed with a turnaround time of not more than 4 weeks. Construction progress is on track to achieve and finish the roofing work by September 2022.

The remarkable feat was celebrated on-site and attended by key executives of AT&S Malaysia, Mr Vittorio Villari, Executive Project Officer, and Mr Markus Sterba, Technical Project Director; and Mr Richard Wood, Project Manager of Exyte.

The achievement was commemorated by using a construction crane to smash a bottle of sparkling juice onto the piles. Mr Markus Sterba applauded, “It’s the teamwork that counts. It takes a strong team spirit to propel the members to work tirelessly, under the challenge of abiding with strict SOPs for Covid-19 and the demanding work targets. Nevertheless, we did it! We are now looking forward to the completion of piling works.”

It’s a work well done.”

Exyte is complimented for managing the construction and site for AT&S project with strict safety and health standards. Mr Richard Wood thanked AT&S, “We understand AT&S’ expectation for this greenfield project based on our past delivery experiences.
