Efficient production facilities in Malaysia

Our two factories in Penang, Malaysia, have been built and designed from the ground up to cater to our operations. This allows us to have highly optimized production facilities.

Our factories have a scalable capacity of up to 6,000 homes per year, are adapted for efficiency and have a streamlined, systematized, and semi-automated process.

Up to 90% of the construction is completed in the factory.

Penang is a manufacturing hub in Malaysia and has a strong local supply chain and accessibility to raw materials and qualified labour. It is also a strategic location with a sea freight port and the possibility to reach many global markets.

Exceptional production capacity

We have highly skilled engineers running the factory and our in-house developed machines focus on safety and functionality to match our lined production perfectly.

The flow through the factory is fast and during production, we perform over 350 standardized quality controls that are being digitally measured and documented.

The first factory was completed in 2018 and since then, production has ramped up yearly.

The second factory was completed in 2022 and when all five lines in both factories are running, we have a capacity of about 6,000 homes per year. That makes us one of the world’s largest industrial producers of apartments.

Technology, efficiency and flexibility

Our technology-driven approach allows us to achieve high levels of quality while significantly reducing production times and costs. We need minimal lead time to start production, and the digital drawings, the automated component orders and the semi-automated process make the production very flexible.

We have a complete modular delivery to the construction site to reduce time on site as much as possible, including;

  • Foundation
  • Roof
  • Staircases
  • Utility rooms
  • Corridors
  • Balconies
  • Entrances
  • Elevator shafts

On top of that all vertical shafts MEP-piping is already in place for easy connection after assembly.

Inhouse-developed machines creates independence

The factories feature a unique flow based on custom-built machines developed in-house. They are specially built to match our production line perfectly. They are automated or semi-automated and they are extremely fast.

Benefits of having proprietary developed machines

  • Makes us independent when it comes to developing and improving the machines
  • Ensure we get exactly what we need
  • Allows us to control production speed
  • Makes the entire setup extremely flexible and adaptable to the construction system and the various product requirements of the modules.

An ISO-certified management system at our factories

SIBS’ management system is certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and for production and construction also according to ISO 45001.

SIBS Malaysia has received ISO certification for its quality, environmental and occupational health and safety management.

Since we started with our first factory in 2017, we have been working in a structured way on processes and the working environment. As well as providing us with a good basis for continuously improving our processes, the certification process also proves that we have a well-functioning management system.
