Bucher Emhart Glass has contracted AME Elite Consortium Berhad to construct its MYR 108 million (EUR 22.8 million) new manufacturing facility in i-Park@Senai Airport City, Johor, Malaysia.

A subsidiary of Swiss-listed engineering and manufacturing group Bucher Industries AG, Bucher Emhart Glass is established as one of the world’s leading international supplier of glass container manufacturing solutions including equipment, controls, parts and support.
