Group Company of the Month: SESC

Sumitomo Electric Sintered Components (M) Sdn. Bhd. (SESC) is a manufacturing and sales base for sintered parts in Malaysia. Wholly financed by Sumitomo Electric Sintered Alloy, Ltd., SESC was established in 1989 at the Shah Alam Technology Park near Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, which has been enjoying continuous and stable economic growth. SESC will continue to contribute to the development of the country’s domestic industries and play a role as one of our group’s suppliers for the rest of the ASEAN region, which is currently experiencing rapid economic development.

Promoting transfer of products and equipment to a new plant and working to increase our market share as the supervisor of the development and quality control departments.

Established in November in 1989 as the sintered parts group’s third overseas production base, SESC will celebrate its 25th anniversary this November.

With the background of stable economic growth in Malaysia, we provide compressor parts for air-conditioners and refrigerators, as well as engine parts for Malaysian automobile manufacturers. Additionally, we export our products to two-wheeled and four-wheeled vehicle markets in Indonesia, which is now demonstrating remarkable growth. Thanks to these efforts, our sales have been expanding steadily.

Transferred to SESC in January 2009, I’m now the supervisor of the development and quality control departments. My current major responsibilities include the transfer of our products and equipment to PT. Sumiden Sintered Components Indonesia (SSI), the new plant established last year in Indonesia. In addition, I promote various efforts to obtain new orders and increase our market share.

Multinational Country

Most people in the country are Malay Malaysians (approx. 60%), Chinese Malaysians (approx. 25%), or Indian Malaysians (approx. 10%), with their religious beliefs ranging from Islam, Buddhism, and Hindu to Christianity.

It is not unusual for our staff members to speak two or three languages, such as Malay, their native language, English, and Chinese (or Tamil). This must be totally surprising to Japanese people.

Ranked No. 1 as the Country where Japanese People Want to Live

Known as a country with a very high affinity for Japan, Malaysia is ranked No. 1 as the country where Japanese people want to live. Behind this popularity is the fact that in Malaysia, the climate is moderate throughout the year, prices are low, the streets are safe, and medical standards are high. On top of these factors, the country is seldom affected by natural disasters such as earthquakes.

For these reasons, the country is drawing attention as a destination for retired people to stay for a long period of time.

Malaysian Love for Sweets

In the streets and at shopping centers, there are many shops selling sweets and super-sweet beverages. One of my favorite Malaysian sweets is mango lolo, shaved ice with mango flesh and puree on it!

Sweets are available also at our company cafeteria. In their breaks, staff members have not only the main dishes but also sweets.
