Martin Engineering, a bulk handling company, is opening a business unit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with a satellite office in Lumut. The Malaysian Business Unit will act as the main hub for providing products and solutions to various industries Martin Engineering serves in the region. 

Customers will receive more localized care from a team with a greater understanding of the region’s needs and challenges, which will see faster response times, better logistics, closer relationships with customers, and an expansion of the portfolio of products and services available to help customers improve their bulk handling efficiency and safety.


“Our team in Australia has done a great job of serving this area, but we’ve come to realize that the Malaysian market deserves closer attention,” said Javier Schmal, the area vice president in charge of overseeing the expansion for Martin Engineering. “This is an exciting opportunity to give existing and new customers a greater range of bulk handling options and innovations to choose from.”

The business unit will begin with six industry professionals including William Valladao from Martin Engineering Brazil. In addition to hiring more qualified local technicians, he will manage support to key accounts and lead customer development. He worked as a service manager for 20 years in Brazil, was promoted to business development manager and in five years has earned the opportunity to build and drive the success of the Malaysian Business Unit.

The team's ability to speak several languages including Malay, English, Portuguese, and Tamil, will enhance professional maintenance services, from air cannon and conveyor belt cleaner care to the installation of transfer point products and belt support equipment. 

Serving a wide range of bulk handling industries like cement, port terminals, biomass, mining, and quarries, the team will install and support a broad range of Martin Engineering products. These include popular primary and secondary cleaners such as the CleanScrape or the QC1+ models for superior belt cleaning to reduce carryback, dust and cleanup. Improving material flow and workplace safety, the Typhoon Air Cannons with SMART Series Nozzles allow external maintenance of valves and nozzle replacements without tank removal or exposure to high heat applications. 

“The new Malaysian business unit will receive ample support from other business units,” said Schmal. “The foundation of assistance comes from Martin Australia through manufacturing products, sales expertise, engineering designs, and technical support.”
