A new plant has just opened in Kluang, Malaysia. Named Kluang 3, this new production unit of 2700 m² manufactures the Zen tile, a flat mineral tile.
This investment of 2.4 million euros meets one of the stakes set in the business strategy which is to capture growth in Asia and to adapt to market demand by offering a flat tile.
Previously manufactured at an external partner who ceased its activity in 2016, the Zen tile takes a new turn. Its production will be internalized in a dedicated plant. The project then began and in just one year, the first Zen tile pressed in Kluang 3 was born.
With this new plant, TERREAL completes its range of tiles for the Asian market. By supporting manufacturing from A to Z, quality monitoring and adaptability to customer demand will be enhanced. The production capacity will also be much more important since 1.8 million pieces will be released each year from Kluang 3.
