Volcano Tec (Thailand) Co., Ltd (“VTT”)
VTT is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volcano Berhad, a company based in Penang, Malaysia. Being part of the Volcano Group enables VTT to leverage on the manufacturing capabilities and resources from Volcano Group’s manufacturing plant in Penang, Malaysia. In 2008, VTT was incorporated as part of Volcano Group’s expansion into Thailand to carry out the manufacturing of nameplates and plastic injection moulded parts. In line with this expansion, VTT rented a factory in Rayong, Thailand. In 2008, VTT was granted a promotion certificate by the Board Of Investment (“BOI”). In 2011, due to the growing local and international demand for our products, we moved our operations in Thailand to our current manufacturing plant which is 3 times larger than the previous rented property
History of Volcano Group
The history of the Volcano Group can be traced back to 1999 with the incorporation of Volcano Nameplate Sdn Bhd (“VNP”). VNP was aa sub-contractor specialising in the manufacturing of nameplates for local Malaysian small medium enterprises (“SMEs”). VNP started its operations in a rented shophouse in Penang, Malaysia. Being a small manufacturer then, we continuously worked towards expanding our business by implementing new manufacturing processes as well as improving our manufacturing capability, efficiency and product quality.
IIn 2004, we moved our entire operations to our current factory in Perai, Penang, Malaysia which is approximately 10 times larger than the previous rented shophouse in view to meet the increasing local and international demand for our products and services.
In 2007, we expanded our factory in Perai, Penang, doubling the total built-up area of our factory as our business continued to grow.
Over the years resulting from our R&D efforts, we have successfully researched and developed improvements by automating some of our manufacturing processes. Our R&D has also successfully enabled us to customise our laser cutting machines to achieve high precision cutting to meet sophisticated demands from our local and international customers.
