An important milestone for Arburg's presence in Asia: On 23 September 2022, the subsidiary in Malaysia celebrated its 30th anniversary. Visu Nagappa, Branch Manager Arburg Malaysia, David Chan, Managing Director Arburg ASEAN, and Ruben Sander, Director Operations Arburg ASEAN, expressed their gratitude for the trust and support from customers and employees. The more than 100 guests invited to the celebration were able to see the benefits of the Gestica machine control system for themselves in the showroom and then celebrated the anniversary in Oktoberfest style.
Hans-Günther Zimmermann, Senior Sales Manager Asia/Africa, conveyed congratulations on behalf of the German Arburg headquarters. David Chan had this to say to the employees: "We would like to celebrate and sincerely thank you for your support and service to our customers over the past 30 years. He further emphasised: "We assure you that we will continue to provide exceptional service and the best quality injection moulding technology in the years to come."
Highlight: Gestica controller
The focus of the anniversary celebration was the presentation of the Gestica control on a hybrid injection moulding machine Allrounder 570 H. The Gestica control has "smart" assistance functions that actively support the customer. "Our goal was to be able to offer modern injection moulding solutions in Malaysia," says Visu Nagappa. The Gestica touchscreen control has met with great interest among customers. After the performance, there was a big celebration styled like an Oktoberfest.
Arburg Malaysia's activities began in 1989 with the sale of two Allrounders. In the early days, our customers were still supported via a trading partner. Due to the good trend in the market, Arburg opened its own subsidiary already in 1992. Four years later, the subsidiary moved to new premises, doubling the usable area to 250 square metres and making it possible to expand the range of services. Today, over 1,200 Allrounder injection molding machines are in operation in Malaysia. The subsidiary offers its customers an expert hotline, a spare parts warehouse, a 160 square meter showroom with an Allrounder for trials with customer moulds, and a wide range of courses and seminars. In addition, there is a sub-branch on Penan Island, which also covers sales, service, applications and spare parts.
