RS Group plc (LSE: RS1), a global omni-channel provider of product and service solutions, has expanded its distribution center in Malaysia with the launch of a new 50,000 sq. ft warehouse as part of its strategy to ensure future growth and expand its range of service offerings.


Acknowledging the significance of minimizing maintenance and equipment downtime, the facility is strategically located within Mapletree Logistics hub in Shah Alam, Klang Valley. The location is conveniently situated 25 minutes (approximately 22 kilometers) away from Klang Sea Port and 50 minutes (around 56 kilometers) away from KLIA International Airport. This setup allows for a quick order fulfilment time of only one to two days for local businesses.


In collaboration with Geodis MY, the warehouse is outfitted with comprehensive wireless coverage and is Industry 4.0 ready, with plans to integrate radio frequency technology and other IoT devices in the near future. The facility is also equipped with RS's SAP and vendor-managed inventory systems, enabling efficient operations management, allowing for greater spend visibility and reductions in process costs. This is further complemented by Geodis' warehouse management system which ensures efficient inventory storage and retrieval functions.


Sean Er Lim, Country General Manager, RS Malaysia, said, "Malaysia is a strategic market for RS, and the increase in capacity will enable us to offer a wider range of products and services to our customers. This warehouse signifies RS' continued commitment to Malaysia’s industry4WRD (Industry 4.0) initiative, providing businesses with the necessary industrial and electronic solutions to embrace Industry 4.0. Our diverse array of innovative solutions will simplify the transition for businesses looking to embrace the next industrial revolution."
