M. Ariffin Yusuf, Managing Director of Prima Group, and Mr. Michael Wong, Managing Director, Fresenius Medical Care Malaysia at the grand opening of the Fresenius Medical Care Regional Manufacturing Plant press conference


The plant is a state-of-the-art facility and will be Fresenius Medical Care's regional manufacturing hub for Southeast Asia. In addition to supplying high-quality haemodialysis concentrates and disinfectants, the plant produces Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) products necessary for advanced Continuous Ambulatory PD (CAPD) treatment.


"Malaysia with its positive business environment, skilled workforce, and strategic geographic location provides a natural choice for a regional manufacturing plant", said Harry De Wit, CEO Fresenius Medical Care Asia Pacific. "This marks an important milestone for Fresenius Medical Care and Malaysia, reinforcing our lifelong commitment to dialysis patients, and strengthening local healthcare capabilities for the future."


With about 43,000 dialysis patients in Malaysia[1] providing excellent renal care is of critical importance. Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) is a form of dialysis that uses the natural lining of the patient's abdomen to filter waste from the blood. The patients can perform PD in the comfort of their home.


Fresenius Medical Care's investment in this project will have a significant positive impact on the local economy. Plans to further expand the product portfolio and production capacity for local and regional markets are already in place.


"The Ministry of Health is committed to the Economic Transformation Programme in focussing on promoting investment in the National Key Economic Area (NKEA) of health care. The Fresenius Medical Care plant manufacturing high quality haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis fluids while using the latest technology is part of this programme", Dato' Seri Dr. Chen Chaw Min added.


The plant in Bandar Enstek is the second plant of Fresenius Medical Care in Malaysia. At Ipoh the company produces Water Treatment Systems to ensure high water quality essential for dialysis.
