Melaka, Malaysia, 22 February 2016 – Leading flexible packaging manufacturer Daibochi Plastic and Packaging Industry Berhad (Daibochi; 耐慕志; Bloomberg: DPP:MK; Reuters: DPPM.KL) secured two new contracts to supply flexible packaging to its multinational (MNC) customers in the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) market.

The Group would deliver flexible packaging for several new product lines of the MNCs in the food and beverage (F&B) and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) sectors. The new export orders are expected to commence from the second quarter of 2016 and onwards.

Mr. Thomas Lim (林树坤), Managing Director of Daibochi Plastic and Packaging Industry Berhad said:

“We have seen Daibochi’s export sales increase year-on-year to contribute 53% of group sales in the financial year ended 31 December 2015 (FY2015), from 50% in FY2014. These are results of our unwavering focus to grow our regional reach.

The newly-secured contracts would contribute significantly towards expanding our export sales in the current financial year.

More importantly, one of the contracts involves Daibochi’s close cooperation with the customer to meet tight new product launch deadlines in their highly competitive market. In this instance, the Daibochi team overcame many challenges to meet the customer’s crucial lead time, including importing new packaging machinery and developing a new packaging format. Daibochi believes in aligning our objectives with that of our customers to achieve a mutually-beneficial partnership.”

Daibochi posted 12.6% growth in FY2015 net profit to RM26.7 million from RM23.7 million a year ago, attributed to larger exports and favourable foreign exchange rates. The Group also benefitted from lower resin prices, and better product mix from sales of new innovations to the ANZ market.
