Broadcom Launches RM59m Global Distribution Warehouse in Penang

SEBERANG PERAI, Sept 19 — Leading semiconductor supplier Broadcom Limited opened a new RM59 million global distribution warehouse in Batu Kawan here today.

The warehouse, which will complete the backend of Broadcom's supply chain, will ship over 90 per cent of Broadcom's products directly to its customers.

“Broadcom's estimated export revenue by 2018 will be around RM65 billion, so it will be the largest electronics and electrical exporter in the country,” said International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed in his speech.

He said the largest electrical and electronics exporter in Malaysia now is Western Digital, which commanded an export revenue of RM20 billion.

“Broadcom's export revenue will greatly surpass Western Digital and its exports alone will take up 8 per cent of the overall exports in Malaysia, not only in E&E,” he said during a press conference after officiating the opening of the warehouse this morning.

He said the company may have only invested RM59 million in its new facility in Penang, but its impact on the industrial and manufacturing ecosystem will be significant.

It will create business opportunities for local small-medium industries and enterprises, the local supply chain and also the logistics industry, he added.

“In addition to this global distribution warehouse, which is managed by its principal hub, the company has plans to expand further with business spending of RM4.1 billion over the next 10 years such as in global production planning, quality management, strategic procurement and logistics management,” he said.

He said Broadcom will import 30 per cent of its chips from the United States, 30 per cent is from the local supply chain, and the rest from other countries.

“In its export, it will also only export 30 per cent to America and 70 per cent is to other countries,” he said.

“United States should not be concerned about huge trade deficits because what we export to America is the same as what we import from them,” he added.

Mustapa said Malaysia is now the world's seventh largest E&E exporter, with exports totalling RM287.7 billion last year.

“This industry has shown an upward trend in export for the past three years to contribute 36.6 per cent of total exports and 44.6 per cent of total manufacturing exports in 2016,” he said.

Broadcom Limited first started out as part of Hewlett-Packard in the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone in 1972.

It was formerly known as Avago Technologies Limited before changing its name to Broadcom Limited in February last year after acquiring US-based Broadcom Corporation.

The company currently has 1,100 employees in its facility in Bayan Lepas and 350 in the new facility in Batu Kawan.

【博通公司全球配件货仓开幕礼】槟博通分销仓库投入运作 贸长:出口额料达650亿 

(大山脚19日讯)贸工部长拿督慕斯达法指出,随着博通有限公司(Broadcom Limited)分销仓库全面投入运作后,预计未来可达到600亿至650亿令吉的出口额,占大马总出口额的8%,届时该公司将成为大马电子电器领域最大出口商。

目前,我国最大出口商为威腾电子公司,出口额达200亿令吉。慕斯达法指出,位于槟城的博通全球分销仓库,也是大马第一个私人仓库,是该公司储存分销至美国、台湾、韩国、泰国以及本地的电子半导体零件地点。

他透露,该公司30%配件是从美国进口,之后再分销至世界各地,其中美国占30%,这将大力推动大马物流及电子电器领域的发展。慕斯达法今早与槟州首席部长林冠英在峇都加湾,为该公司主持全球配件货仓开幕礼后,在记者会上这么表示。

目前,大马是世界第7大电子产品出口国,2016年总出口额为287亿令吉;在过去3年来,有关领域出口额也有上升趋势,在2016年总出口额中占36.6%,制造业则是44.6%。截至今年首7个月,电子电器领域出口额已达21.7%。

林冠英:槟拥完备货柜分配网络

林冠英在致词时表示,槟州拥有发展完备的货柜分配网络,包括槟州国际机场航空运输部及海上运输港口的海运部,占尽地理优势。峇都加湾也与各个主要高速公路如南北大道接轨,可进行陆路交通运输。

“槟州在2017年第一季度的出口额高达529亿令吉,相对于2016年同季度的435亿令吉,增长了22%。槟州出口额占全国年出口额23.5%。能够在出口国际市场上取得这样的成就,有赖于槟城的分配、物流及库房设备。”

林冠英认为,博通全球分销仓库将会刺激槟城及马来西亚北部的供应链,将为槟城制造逾300个额外的工作机会,本土的船运及交通活动也会增加。

博通有限公司国际营运高级副总裁兼大马常务董事黄文财则希望,中央政府在财政预算案中带来好消息,给予投资者利好优惠或奖掖等。他提及,随着新货仓建成,该公司可从槟城分销逾90%产品至世界各地。

出席者尚有该公司董事陈炳伦(全球物流/贸易合规)、大马投资发展局(MIDA)副首席执行员拿督彭继通及投资槟城机构首席执行员吕丽莲等。

Broadcom sets up warehouse in Malaysia, plans RM4.1b investment

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 19): American semiconductor player Broadcom Ltd, which has set up its global distribution warehouse in the Batu Kawan Industrial Park in Penang, plans to spend RM4.1 billion over the next 10 years to expand its business here further.

This investment, according to Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed in a statement today, will be spent on, among others, areas like global production planning, quality management, strategic procurement and logistics management.

As for the new facility it has set up in Batu Kawan, Mustapa said Broadcom's global inventory for products being manufactured in the US, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand and Malaysia will be centrally stored right here before being distributed worldwide.

"This new facility is undeniably a welcome boost to Malaysia's logistics industry. Given that 90% of its products will be exported via air freight, it would increase the usage of Malaysia's airport facility with approximately 300 to 500 million units of products being shipped per week.

"In fact, Broadcom's estimated future export revenue is more than RM60 billion once its principal hub is fully operational, making Broadcom the largest E&E exporter in Malaysia," he said during the opening ceremony of Broadcom's global distribution warehouse today.

The facility will be managed by Broadcom's principal hub, he said, which will also support its global subsidiaries in undertaking research and development activities.

"This would further strengthen Malaysia's E&E ecosystem and create vast business opportunities for companies in supporting industries. Broadcom has certainly played an active role in supporting the local supply chain, benefitting contract manufacturers," said the minister.

According to the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), Malaysia has, over the last decade, achieved significant progress in the electrical & electronics (E&E) industry that resulted in the growth of new businesses and creation of jobs.

The country, it added, is now the world's seventh largest exporter of E&E products with a total export of RM287.7 billion last year.
