Nissha Printing Co.,Ltd.

On December 2nd, 2016, Nissha Industrial and Trading Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (Malaysia), an industrial materials-related consolidated subsidiary of Nissha Printing Co., Ltd. (hereinafter Nissha Printing), concluded a joint investment agreement with the building materials maker Scanwolf Plastic Industries Sdn. Bhd. (hereinafter Scanwolf Plastic), with a view to establishing a joint venture for the production of Luxury Vinyl tiles.

Background and objective of the joint venture establishment

In August, 2015, Nissha Printing’s Industrial Materials business acquired a metallized paper business. With this product as its main axis, it has expanded the printing-related materials field, and acquired sales channels into new markets, and new core technologies. Meanwhile, with regards to the existing decoration field, the market is expected to enjoy stable growth, and Nissha Printing is working to expand the business on a global base, shifting from the conventional export business model toward one based on local production and consumption.
In 1995, Nissha Printing established Southern Nissha Sdn. Bhd. as a subsidiary in Malaysia, which serves as the production base for the Industrial Materials business in Southeast Asia, manufacturing products for the automobile and home appliance market. On the other hand, Scanwolf Plastic has a strong sales network in the building material and furniture product markets in Malaysia, and also has exceptional extrusion molding technology. In a region of remarkable economic growth, this joint venture will establish a production and sales system in the building materials market, which is expected to see an increase in demand for high value-added products, in addition to the conventional target markets.
Through the fusion with Nissha Printing’s molding and decoration technology, the joint venture will expand its building materials business in Southeast Asia.
