MSC has moved its Selangor office in Malaysia since 1 December to a bigger, more accessible building. This is MSC’s main office in the country, and is the one located closest to Port Klang, which is the largest port in the country and Malaysia’s main gateway to international markets via the sea.
“We have been growing in size so we need a larger office. We also want to provide our people with access to better facilities, surroundings, as well as a more conducive working environment,” said Fabienne Lerda, Managing Director of MSC Malaysia.
Situated in a central location, and with public rail services directly available at the office building, it allows easier access for customers and employees alike.
Modern in style, the office is tastefully designed and showcases eye-catching images related to MSC’s core business and values. Meeting rooms are uniquely designed in container-style and are more comfortable and functional. There is also a ‘coffee-shop’ style cafeteria that can be used for client meetings and lunches, which also adds a more inviting feel to the office.
“We are all really excited about the move. Shifting to a brand new office this year is particularly meaningful as this is also our 20th anniversary of doing business in Malaysia. This is a yet another milestone for us, reflecting our continued progress over the years,” added Fabienne.
Looking forward, MSC is aiming to grow further locally. Currently, key exports being moved include furniture, dairy and electronic goods. MSC is aiming to ship larger volumes of cargo including paper and metals, as there is a growing amount of related waste materials being processed into reusable raw materials locally before they can be exported.
Recently, local bank analysts have predicted that Malaysia’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth will rise to 6 per cent in 2022. Economic growth in the country has increased with the resumption of economic activities and relaxation of coronavirus restrictions.
