The ground-breaking ceremony has been held at Senai airport city, Johor.

Wiwynn’s business has been growing rapidly and has built a close partnership with world-leading cloud service providers. It has achieved impressive growth of USD 1billion in 2016 and further recorded USD 6.3billion in 2020, showing its strong performance.

The expansion of this server rack integration plant in Johor marks the significant move of the company’s first self-build overseas presence.  

In the future, the Malaysian plant will not only serve the demand from the neighbouring data centres but will also be positioned as Wiwynn’s service centre in the APAC region. ‘The demand for cloud services in Southeast Asia has grown rapidly in recent years. Many cloud service providers have built data centres here and brought huge opportunities for cloud IT infrastructure. The new addition of our Malaysian plant is not only because we identified the business potential here, but also the breakthrough of our global manufacturing strategy. We will follow the highest Gold standard of Green Building Index (GBI) technology and implement smart manufacturing technologies in the new site to show our commitment to a sustainable environment and operation,’ said Robin Wang, Wiwynn’s Vice President of Supply Chain and Manufacturing.

The implementation of a smart factory system will further shape Wiwynn’s leading position amongst others in the industry.

The launch of the plant will create more than 500 job opportunities for the locals in Johor. ‘We are excited to have Wiwynn investing in Senai, Johor. With the new plant, the local talents here will be benefited from the job opportunities created, especially when more Malaysians have decided to move back from Singapore after the lockdown’ said Tuan Haji Natazha Bin Hariss, Yang Dipertua of MPKU (Kulai Municipal Council).
