Mölnlycke of Sweden has just opened a new surgical glove plant in Kulim Hi-Tech Park, Kedah, with a total investment of 50 million EUR (RM233 million).

The new production site has a land area of 29,164 sqm and a building footprint of 14,620 sqm. It is fully equipped for automated glove production and packaging lines.

Although automated, Mölnlycke expects to create some 400 new job opportunities within the state with the new plant.

In return, Mölnlycke was awarded the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) Special Tax Stimulus Package in February 2022.

The manufacturing plant is constructed in partnership with ENGIE and Veolia Water Technologies.

Veolia will be assisting in improving the plant’s wastewater management, effectively recycling water, and improving the discharge quality while ENGIE will be installing solar panels to power the manufacturing production and operations.

Once functional, the factory would be exporting 100% of its production to the global market.

Mölnlycke entered the Malaysian market in 1990 and currently employs over 2,500 Malaysians in its network.
