 Owen Mumford responds to growing customer needs by expanding business in Asia

Oxford, UK – 30 March 2017: Owen Mumford, global industry leader in medical device design and manufacturing, officially opens its new facility in Malaysia today to support and grow the company in the Asia Pacific region.

Since late 2015, our new regional hub has been operating from Nusajaya, in the south of Malaysia and during 2016 we have strengthened our operations at the site to include packaging, manufacturing and logistics services for our customer base throughout the region.

In addition to our new state-of-the-art production facilities, Joerg Daehn has been appointed to the new role of Regional Managing Director for the APAC region based out Malaysia. Our Malaysian Regional Hub is now well established and a celebratory official opening event will take place on 30th March 2017.

The opening will showcase our advanced facilities with the latest high-tech product manufacturing and packaging lines now operational, enabling Owen Mumford to benefit from greater proximity to the growing Asia Pacific market allowing us to be more responsive to our customers in the Asia Pacific region and their local market needs.

To mark the occasion, the representative of the Chief Minister of Johor, Mr. Haji Suhairi Bin Haji Hashim, CEO of Johor Biotechnology and Biodiversity Corporation and Her Excellency the British High Commissioner Vicki Treadell, will attend the official opening which will include a tour of the factory.

Regional Managing Director, Joerg Daehn commented, “We are very proud of our new Malaysian operation. It is a great opportunity for Owen Mumford to continue growing its business in the Asia Pacific region which will ensure we continue to provide a real difference to our customers with excellent products and a great service.

Jarl Severn, Managing Director at Owen Mumford stated, “This is the first time in 65 years that Owen Mumford has established manufacturing outside of the UK and we are proud to become a significant local employer of the local skilled work force in Johor generating diverse opportunities across a broad range of jobs. This is a great opportunity for Owen Mumford to engage with the community and assist with growth in the economy. We look forward to taking advantage of the logistical opportunities that our new Regional Hub in Malaysia will provide us for Owen Mumford to become the preferred and leading medical device supplier in the region.”
