Chasen Holdings has secured two new contracts which it said would have a positive impact on its financial results for the FY starting 1 April 2019.
 
Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Chasen (Shanghai) Hi-Tech Machinery Services, has secured from a repeat customer two projects worth a combined RMB34 million (S$6.8 million).

Chasen will provide specialist relocation services for a state-of-the-art flat-panel display production plant and a semi-conductor fabrication facility.

With that, this month (Nov) alone, Chasen has announced three contract wins in China worth a total of S$16.7 million (see table below).

Under the RMB9 (S$1.8) million contract for the semiconductor fabrication plant, Chasen will move equipment and machinery for the pilot line of the customer’s maiden wafer fab facility in Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province.

The project will run from January 2019 to May 2020 while the installation of the pilot line would be completed in four to six months from project commencement.

The other contract, from the same customer, worth RMB25 (S$5) million, requires Chasen’s move-in services for the first phase of a two-phase project for a Generation-10.5 thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD production plant in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province.

Chasen will commence work on the first phase from April 2019 and complete it by December 2019.

"As a company that specialises in moving sophisticated manufacturing equipment and fitting out production plants, we see a lot more room for us to grow as these industry-wide developments continue to unfold in China.”
--  Low Weng Fatt,
MD and CEO,
Chasen Holdings

Mr Low Weng Fatt, Chasen’s MD and CEO, said: “Growing demand for electronic and smart devices in China has been a major driving force behind the country’s flat panel display market.

"This is also fuelling the emergence of more wafer fabrication plants to meet the need for more microchips.

"This is the first time a TFT LCD customer is building its very own wafer fab to supplement its own requirements instead of procuring wafer chips from a third party supplier. We are optimistic in continuing with the remaining phases for both projects."
