Prima Packaging has also penetrated the Asian region and we count the following countries as amongst our important export markets:- Singapore, Myanmar, Vietnam, the Philippines and India.
Prima Packaging was formed in 1974 principally to service the paint industry. Throughout the years, business expanded, its product range increased and its pails and cans found usage in new applications and industries. In 1992, the company undertook a RM18 million expansion which entailed the construction of a new factory and the acquisition of new automated machineries. The higher production capacity and efficiency was targeted to serve the growing market while the automated technologies reinforced the company’s competitive edge. In 1999, the company was wholly acquired by Pintaras Jaya Berhad, a company listed on the Main Board Of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange. Following this acquisition, the company was renamed Prima Packaging Sdn Bhd.
Prima Packaging’s automated pail line, the first of its kind in Malaysia, is capable of producing both open-head and tight-head pails ranging in capacities from 10 to 25 litres. Two automated can lines produce cans of sizes between 1 litre and 7 litres, while a further two semi-automated can lines manufacture smaller diameter general cans, confectionery cans and ink cans. Prima Packaging also has an in-house printing facility which enables the customisation of its containers to their customers’ specific design and colour requirements. The company is the first in the Malaysian market to introduce the welded rivet/flange on plastic handles for general cans.
Prima Packaging prides itself on its timely deliveries and efficient and professional customer service. Coupled with our high tinplate stock level, the support of a quality assurance team and on-going research and development work, Prima Packaging assures its customers of both high quality products and superior service.
