KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 2 — Medical equipment manufacturer LKL International Bhd’s unit, LKL Advance Metaltech Sdn Bhd, has secured a US$19 million (about RM78.5 million) sales contract to supply nitrile examination gloves to a China-based company.
In a statement today, LKL International said the sales contract win represented not only its first export contract to China but also its maiden venture into the distribution of examination gloves to the medical and healthcare sector.
LKL International managing director Lim Kon Lian said the group would continue to broaden its product portfolio which currently encompasses the manufacturing of medical beds and peripherals, and distribution of personal protective equipment, as well as other medical peripherals and devices.
“This major sales contract award highlights our growing brand recognition as a trusted supplier of quality medical/healthcare equipment to the global markets.
