New Leuze plant in Malaysia begins operation

After a construction time of just 16 months, Leuze has opened its new production site in Malaysia. With immediate effect, Leuze sensors will be produced there for the international market.

The construction of their new production site represents a key element in Leuze’s global growth strategy. To be able to meet the global demand for its sensors and ensure a short delivery time, Leuze will double its production capacities by the end of the year. To this end, the company is implementing a strategy based on multiple production locations.

“This will allow us to not only further improve our delivery capability but also optimise our international logistics flows,” explains Sebastian Raible, managing director of Leuze Electronic Malaysia and on-site project manager of the construction project. “We implement the philosophy of process equality. This means that all production facilities worldwide are organised in the same process: same temperature, same humidity, same pressure.

The production and warehouse logistics facilities covering an area of 4,500 square metres make up the bulk of the new plant. An additional 1,000 square metres are used for administration purposes. Areas totalling 7,000 square metres are available for a second expansion phase. Starting with 85 new local workers. By the end of the year, there will be over 100. With the growth of the plant, another 100 new employees are to be recruited in the first expansion phase. More will follow in the second expansion phase.
