Dutch Lady to develop state-of-the-art production facility in Malaysia

DUTCH Lady Milk Industries Bhd (DLMI), subsidiary of Royal FrieslandCampina (RFC), has contracted international engineering and project management consultant Royal HaskoningDHV to develop its new environmental-friendly and innovative production facility in Malaysia.

The scope of Royal HaskoningDHV will include design, procurement, construction management, commissioning and start-up of the facility, as well as assistance in the transfer from the existing factory to the new facilities at Bandar Enstek, Negeri Sembilan.

Quality, safety, health, environment and sustainability will be at the heart of the design of the new factory.

“As Malaysia’s leading dairy company, I’m very excited to partner Royal HaskoningDHV to build our new production facility that will revolutionise our supply chain processes,” commented DLMI’s managing director Tarang Gupta.

“This is to enable us to produce DLMI’s range of nutritional products with the added scalable capacity to manufacture other innovative variations in the future driven by consumer trends and occasions.”

According to Gupta, the experience and expertise of Royal HaskoningDHV will ensure DLMI’s new dairy hub in Negeri Sembilan is world-class and infused with the latest environmental-friendly technology to further improve efficiency and productivity.

The construction of the new production facility will empower DLMI to grow further and contribute to the development of the Malaysian economy and the local dairy sector.

In addition, the new state-of-the-art factory will help increase Negeri Sembilan’s competitiveness to attract new investments and to create new spin-off economic benefits to the local economy as well as to vendors.

“We are thrilled to again partner Royal FrieslandCampina,” noted Royal HaskoningDHV director (business unit multinationals) René Dahmen.

“By combining our experience in food and beverage, sustainable business and digital technology, we are proud to be able to tap on our 140 years’ experience to design an agile plant that will help DLMI further grow their footprint in Malaysia.” – April 19, 2021
