Assembly Services Sdn. Bhd. (ASSB), the UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) subsidiary involved in the manufacturing of Toyota vehicles, announced that its vehicle assembly operations have resumed operations starting today.
The announcement follows the company’s approval from the Selangor State Government in relation to the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), currently in effect until the 9th of June 2020. ASSB’s Bukit Raja Plant will commence operations starting today, while the Shah Alam plant will resume its operations on the 9th of June 2020.
ASSB will be strictly enforcing a new standard operating procedure (SOP) to protect the health and safety of its approximately 2,000 personnel working at its facilities. These include social distancing practices of at least 1 metre in distance, regular temperature checks, and the provision and use of hand sanitisers and face masks.
The various work areas throughout the plant will also be sanitised three times daily, and where necessary, working hours and work flows have been adjusted to minimise contact between staff.
President of UMWT, Ravindran K. said, “We are grateful to the Selangor State Government for its decision to implement the CMCO with customised details and understand that it is in the best interest of the state and people.
“With the resumption of operations, we hope to help in boosting the economy and add momentum to the automotive industry and business moving forward,” he added.
