Sibu-based firm looking at SCORE to further enhance economic growth.
SIBU: Pansar Berhad is continuously looking for investment opportunities to enhance its growth.
“In any business investments which we are looking at, they need to have synergy with what we are doing, whether they are upstream or downstream,” said its managing director Jason Tai.
Speaking to reporters after the company annual general meeting yesterday, he said the development of Samalaju as one of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy’s (SCORE) growth areas with expected inflow of huge foreign investment, was a place which the company was eyeing to invest.
“Even though with the global market downturn where Europe and America are not recovering much and China also affected, we are very excited with development opportunities in Samalaju,” he added.
The investment opportunity which it was eyeing was in line with its core business of distribution, trading and servicing of mechanical and engineering which it had been doing for the last 51 years.
Tai said the future was very bright for the company, the leader in mechanical and engineering services in the state with the development of SCORE.
“In terms of growth, we rely on our traditional principle which has carried us forward in the last 50 years where sustainability is very important to us. We want sustainable growth so as to benefit the community at large,” he added.
In preparation for its future growth and to serve its customers better, he said staff from its 15 branches nationwide, including one in Singapore, had been entrusted to do after-sales service and not just doing their normal work of selling its products.
He said as most of its products were more towards engineering and technical, it needed people with the know-how to handle the marketing side.
This was to ensure that its clients know how to use its products.
