Mewah Group Invests RM150 Million On Palm Oil Refinery In POIC Lahad Datu
An agreement on the purchase of 19.86 acres of land at POIC Lahad Datu was signed in Singapore 3rd August 2010 between POIC Sabah Sdn Bhd and Mewah Oils Sdn Bhd.
Mewah Group, a Singapore company with refineries in Malaysia, is investing RM150 million to set up a 900,000 metric tons per year palm oil refinery at the palm oil industrial cluster in Lahad Datu (POIC Lahad Datu). The refinery will be the biggest in Sabah and create about 200 jobs.
Under the Mewah banner are established Singapore-based companies such as :
Ngo Chew Hong Edible Oils Ptd Ltd
Container Printers Pte Ltd
Choon Heng Transport & Warehousing, Pte Ltd
G&U Logistics Group
Mewah manufacturing units in Malaysia include :
Mewah Oils Sdn Bhd
Mewaholeo Industries Sdn Bhd
Moi Foods Malaysia Sdn Bhd
Container Fabricator (M) Sdn Bhd
Mewah group's turnover is around US$2 billion and its existing refineries (in Peninsular Malaysia) have a combined output of 2.5 million metric tons per year.
Mewah will also become the second company to set up refinery at POIC Lahad Datu, which to date has attracted about 30 companies with total investment exceeding RM2 billion.
The other refinery belongs to Zurex Corporation, a company with British interests. Zurex's 200,000 ton-per-year refinery is due to start operation in 2012.
The uniqueness of the two refineries in POIC is that their owners do not own oil palm plantations, and they are granted refinery licenses by federal authorities to operate exclusively in POIC Lahad Datu.
Investors are attracted to POIC Lahad Datu as its located near to the raw materials, has a liquid oil jetty and a natural deep harbor with draft of over 20 meters capable of accommodating vessels up to 100,000 deadweight tons.
Sabah is Malaysia's biggest palm oil with 10 palm oil refineries.
