FLEX, one of the world's largest contract manufacturers with operations in 30 countries, has opened its Bukit Minyak facility in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, to become an industrial vaccination centre.
The H1 facility is expected to welcome about 13,500 employees from Flex as well as 90 other factories in the vicinity for the Public-Private Partnership Covid-19 Industry Immunisation Programme (Pikas).
The Flex Pikas Vaccination Centre can accommodate up to 1,000 people a day for vaccination.
Flex has also offered its internal manpower to help coordinate the process in tasks that do not require trained medical personnel.
As one of the largest employers of people with disabilities in Malaysia, Flex has also assigned staff members who know basic sign language to help the hearing- impaired at the centre.
Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow was with Flex vice president of operations Viswanathan Paramasivam and Flex Penang general manager Tang Eng Chok to have a look at the centre recently.
Flex, an American-Singaporean multinational electronics contract manufacturer, delivers technology innovation, supply chain and manufacturing solutions to diverse industries and end-markets.
Established in Malaysia in 1990, Flex has 11 facilities in Penang, Selangor and Johor with a total footprint of 4 mil sq ft (about the size of 52 football fields) and employs more than 18,000 people in the country.
