HUP SENG Industries Bhd’s wholly owned subsidiary Hup Seng Perusahaan Makanan (M) Sdn Bhd located (HSPM) at Batu Pahat, Johor temporarily suspended its operations until 30 September 2021 for the purpose of carrying out disinfecting exercises on the entire premises as advised by the Ministry of Health.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia today the company noted it is cooperating and working closely with the MOH and taking mitigating steps to contain the spread of COVID-19 at the premises to safeguard the safety and well-being of our employees.

The temporary suspension of operations is expected to result in loss of production volume estimated to be approximately 3% of the total annual production volume of the Group. 

“Delay in the delivery of goods to its local and export customers is anticipated and the management is currently in discussion with the customers to reschedule the delivery of these orders,” the company said.

HSPM expects to resume its operations after 30 September 2021.
