BOUSTEAD HEAVY INDUSTRIES CORP BHD’s non-independent and non-executive chairman Tan Sri Ramlan Mohamed Ali has resigned effective today.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the group said the 68-year-old retired naval officer resigned to focus on doing his filial duties towards his 95-year-old father who is hospitalised in Singapore.

Ramlan joined the group as chairman in December 2019.



SERN KOU RESOURCES BHD expects to increase production with extended shifts upon re-commencement of manufacturing activities to meet the shipment of several orders to its customers. 

 “The management is currently in discussion with the affected customers for the rescheduling of the delivery dates for these orders and expects that there will not be any adverse impact to the Group,” the furniture exporter said.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia today, it said the group had further been instructed by the Health Ministry to temporarily stopped its operations from June 11 until June 17, unless it receives further advice from the ministry.

This was after a screening exercise had revealed that its 78 foreign employees had tested positive for Covid-19. The group has not been operating since the inception of the Full Movement Control Order (FMCO).

“The group is expected to resume its operations in stages after the end of the FMCO period by strictly adhering to the ministry’s guidelines,” Sern Kou resources said, adding that it does not expect any material impact to its financial performance other than the cost incurred for the Covid-19 test and disinfection cost.



APOLLO FOOD HOLDINGS BHD’s premises in Johor Bahru under its unit Apollo Food Industries (M) Sdn Bhd will resume operation today after completing the thorough disinfection exercise.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the company said the health and safety of all its employees has always been the top priority at all times and not only during the Covid-19 pandemic or other similar health incidences.

“With regard to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo will continue to put in place stringent Covid-19 prevention measures in accordance with the standard operating procedures issued by the relevant authorities from time to time,” the snack maker said.
