Acotec Humidur® has entered into a joint venture with Jurunature Sdn Bhd following the growing demand in the Asia Pacific market.

Acotec announced the joint venture with Jurunature Sdn Bhd, following the ever-growing demand for Humidur® and, more recently, for Humidur® Char corrosion and PFP coatings in Asia. The new name of the jointly owned company is Jurunature Humidur Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd.

The two companies will manufacture the coating products at the plant in Malaysia. This strategic decision was taken both to be able to supply the Asian market faster, but also to reduce transport and operational costs more efficiently.

“The official opening of Jurunature Humidur Asia Pacific is a major step in our company’s history. It is a cooperation based on mutual fit. We both share the philosophy of putting customers first and serving them in the most optimal way we can. Protecting our customer’s asset is our lifetime goal”, said Wim Schalley, CEO of Acotec.

“We are very proud to be associated with Humidur® and the formation of this Joint Ownership company. The activation of this production plant demonstrates the strong commitment to maintain the quality of the Humidur® and Humidur® Char products. Humidur® and Humidur® Char offer advantages and warranties unseen in the coating industry and this will meet well with client expectations of keeping both Capex and Opex costs down on the long term”, added Dato’ Sri Muhammad Syafiq, Managing Director of Jurunature.
