Samsung SDI, a storage battery manufacturing company, is looking to create 1,300 job opportunities for talents in Malaysia, Minister of International Trade & Industry Azmin Ali has shared.
These job opportunities will be at the firm's upcoming Samsung SDI Energy Malaysia (SDIEM) Plant Two battery cell manufacturing facility in Seremban Malaysia, and will mainly target "highly-skilled engineers".
Overall, the facility is expected to cost a total of 1.7tn won (~RM6bn) in phase-by-phase investments until completion in 2025, with Plant Two to start mass production in 2024, Samsung SDI said in a press release.
Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony of the facility on Thursday (21 July 2022), Menteri Besar of Negeri Sembilan, Dato' Seri Haji Aminuddin bin Harun said such investments from high-impact industries are integral to Malaysia's vision of "driving robust economic growth" in the country and in Negeri Sembilan, as outlined in the Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0 plan.
"Not only is this testament to our economic potential in Negeri Sembilan, but also the investment-friendly policies implemented by the State.
"Samsung SDIEM’s investment to be the pioneer in electric vehicle (EV) battery cell manufacturing in Seremban will continue to create jobs for the youth and spur more opportunities for local businesses," he added.
