KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE) has initiated a major transformation company-wide to ensure it becomes a high-performance organisation.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Dominique de Soras said the transformation has a natural link to its yard optimisation programme launched a few years ago to improve asset base.

"The intent is to increase our production capacity via optimism and upgrading," said de Soras during an oil and gas vendors' dialogue in Johore Baharu today.

The text of his speech was released in Kuala Lumpur.

The dialogue, entitled 'Hand in hand in delivering projects on time and at cost', was conducted by MMHE to update its vendors and subcontractors on the company's transformation initiative.

de Soras said their investment in transformation is comprehensive, encompassing hardware such as yard facilities and software such as process automation.

"We are further investing on uplifting the capability of our people and our reputation through rebranding and corporate culture campaign," he added.

MMHE signed long-term agreements on March 5 with five key contractors for the provision of structural fabrication services, and on March 8 it signed long-term price agreements with 19 vendors for the supply of structures, piping and electrical and instrumentation materials.

MMHE vendors and subcontractors have been supporting the company's transformation efforts through various channels to provide manpower and material supply in their projects.
