KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 17): Biscuits maker Hup Seng Industries Bhd said it has temporarily suspended the operation of its Johor plant's packaging machine for disinfection purposes to curb the spread of Covid-19.

In a bourse filing today, its wholly-owned subsidiary Hup Seng Perusahaan Makanan (M) Sdn Bhd (HSPM) located at Tongkang Pecah Industrial Area in Batu Pahat yesterday received a notice from the Ministry of Health (MOH) to temporarily suspend the operation of one packaging machine for one week from Sept 16 to Sept 22.

The group said production operations at all other unaffected areas remain unchanged.

"HSPM is cooperating and working closely with MOH and taking mitigating steps to contain the spread of Covid-19 at the premises to safeguard the safety and well-being of our employees.

"The temporary suspension of one packaging machine should not have any material impact on production schedule and delivery of goods to its local and foreign customers," said the group.

It also does not expect any material impact on its financial performance other than the cost incurred for the Covid-19 tests and disinfection.

At noon break, Hup Seng was unchanged at 95 sen, giving the group a market capitalisation of RM760 million.
