Dutch Lady awards RM100m new factory contract to Seremban Engineering

KUALA LUMPUR (March 8): Dutch Lady Milk Industries Bhd (DLMI) has appointed Negeri Sembilan’s Seremban Engineering Bhd (SEB) as the main contractor to build its new manufacturing plant in Techpark, Bandar Enstek, Negeri Sembilan.

The contract valued at over RM100 million will include all civil, structural and architectural works to be overseen by SEB in this project spanning approximately 13 hectares, DLMI said in a statement.

DLMI managing director Ramjeet Kaur Virik said the contract is worth 25% of DLMI’s total RM400 million investment and the new halal dairy manufacturing hub will commence operations in 2024.

“Construction has commenced for our halal dairy manufacturing hub, which will allow us to eventually be more efficient, hence doubling our production capacity.

“DLMI welcomes the partnership with SEB as this creates opportunities for collaborative efforts with other partners to build Malaysia’s future halal dairy manufacturing hub that will continue nourishing Malaysians for generations to come,” she added.

DLMI, Malaysia’s leading dairy company, is 51% owned by Dutch parent company Royal FrieslandCampina, one of the world’s largest dairy companies with a 150-year history of Dutch dairy heritage and expertise.
