Press Metal is the leading aluminium extruder in Malaysia with a 40,000-tonne capacity per annum, complete with an in-house tool-and-die shop offering quick turnaround services. In addition, our plant is equipped with modern facilities that provide an extensive range of surface finishes – anodized, powder coated, and bright dip.
Backed by more than 25 years of experience and expertise in the aluminium industry, Press Metal ventured into upstream activities in 2007, subsequently building in 2009 a new smelter in Mukah, Sarawak – the first-ever aluminium smelting plant in Malaysia.
In 2011, Press Metal started the development of its Phase 2 aluminium smelter in Samalaju Industrial Park, Bintulu, Sarawak. With a larger production capacity of 320,000 tonnes per annum, it employs the latest 400kA smelting technology. Being more energy efficient, the technology enables us with a higher production output at a lower energy consumption. The smelter commenced operations in 2012.
Continuing along this successful expansion path, Press Metal kick-started the development of the 3rd aluminium smelter in Sarawak (Samalaju Phase 2) in 2014 to complement the existing smelters in Mukah and Samalaju. Today, our smelting capacity has increased to 760,000 tonne per annum.
Press Metal has now put Malaysia in the global footprint as a leading primary aluminium provider, employing the latest and most environmental-friendly technology complying with the world best standards.
The overseas operations of Press Metal have carved a firm niche in the global market and continue to expand. From our initial base of operations in the United Kingdom and Australia, our distribution centres have now expanded to include North America and the Middle East. Thanks to a solid local presence around the world, we have been able to build strong relationships with all our customers and cater to their needs instantly.
