COVID-19 Screening for Employees

New Hoong Fatt Holdings Berhad (“the Company”) had commenced its planned precautionary COVID-19 testing of all foreign and local employees of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Auto Global Parts Industries Sdn Bhd (“AGP”). The screening test was conducted on 24 December 2020 at AGP’s metal parts production factory in Meru, Klang, involving a total of 314 employees.


There were 94 employees of AGP have been tested positive for COVID-19 during the planned screening test. The affected employees are currently receiving appropriate treatment at designated Government facilities as directed by the Ministry of Health Malaysia (“KKM”) and all primary contacts of the affected employees have been identified.


As an immediate response to protect the health and safety of the workforce and the community at large, the Company has temporarily closed the affected metal parts production factory from 25 December 2020 until further notice to contain potential infection. The Management of AGP is undertaking disinfection and sanitisation procedures on the affected production factory as well as on foreign employees’ hostels as per the guidelines provided by KKM. In addition, the Company has notified all employees as well as AGP’s suppliers and customers about the confirmed cases of COVID-19.


The Company's plastic parts production factory, which is situated at a different location, is currently in operation. The office operations are unaffected as the Company has been practicing working from home for its Management and supervisory staff. The Company will continue to adhere to COVID-19 preventive standard operating procedures issued by the relevant authorities from time to time and work closely with the relevant authorities to ensure the health and safety of all its employees.


As this has been planned by the Management, the temporary closure of the metal parts production factory is not expected to have any material impact on the Group’s revenue and earnings for the financial year ending 31 December 2020.
