BALAKONG — Gas Generators (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Gastec), a wholly owned subsidiary of T7 Global Bhd will double up its capacity from 10 to 15 packages per year with the opening of its new facility located in Balakong, Selangor.

Gastec is involved in house designing, engineering, fabrication, testing and commissioning of industrial gas packages and plant for on-site production of nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, packaging of air and gas compression, filtration and other process packages for various industries

Executive director Muhammad Sabri Ab Ghani said that the group used to produce five to six packages in
rented workshops.

Muhammad Sabri said the cost of each package starts from RM1.5 million to RM3 million which will take an approximate duration period of 22 to 24 weeks.

“The acquisition of this building is suitable for our application for the current jobs as well as for future exercise,” he said during the factory’s opening ceremony yesterday.

The new building sits on 1.1 acres with a covering area of 35,000 sq ft.

“This building also is in line with current re-branding and diversification of our parent company and will provide as a full-fledged facility to serve the industry,” said Muhammad Sabri.

Gastec provides two options to its clients, the first is to build, operate and transfer; which provide long-term leasing (10 to 15 years) with an option for the client to acquire the asset at the end of the lease term. The other option is to build, operate and own; whereby clients owns the asset without leasing.

Chief executive officer Ken Tan said the group will be expanding its existing market in Myanmar and Vietnam.

“We are looking at these countries due the shortage in power supply and building up in certain area.

“Our market focus is not only in oil and gas, we are looking for an opportunity in electronic, palm oil as well as power plant,” he said.

Moving forward, the group is eyeing to penetrate African market but it is still at the early stage of the discussion.
