STM, setup with RM48 million (JPY 1.6 billion) capital, will be the SDK Group's first production base outside Japan to cast aluminium and is to start mass production within the month and will meet the demand for fine aluminium products through quick response to car manufacturers' and parts suppliers' needs.

With the completion of the STM's plant in Pasir Gudang, SDK strengthens its aluminium products supply system for the Asian market. At the same time, by securing casting capacity at two locations, SDK ensures the security of its supply chain.
