The EGI plant project in Pulau Indah was jointly conceived by Malaysian engineers and EGI specialists from POSCO, one of the largest steel mills in the world, operating 750kt/yr EGI lines in Korea.

Attracted by the growing demand for EGI products globally and Malaysia's continuous industrial development, the partnership was formed to construct and manage the first fully integrated high-technology electrogalvanising plant in Malaysia, located in Phase 2 of the Industrial Zone at Pulau Indah, Port Klang.
