SilTerra distributed face masks to the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) and the Malaysia Civil Defence Force (APM) personnel in the line of duty amidst the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This is in support of the Movement Control Order (MCO) announced by the Prime Minister.
On April 10th, SilTerra’s Chief Operating Officer, En. Kader Ibrahim and Senior Director of Corporate Development & External Affairs, En. Tahir Hamdan, handed over 1,000 face masks to representatives of PDRM, Bomba and APM at SilTerra’s headquarters in Kulim and took the opportunity to explain SilTerra’s business in semiconductor wafer processing.
As a semiconductor chipmaker, SilTerra has been deemed an ‘essential industry’ by the Malaysian government, given its role in the global electronics supply chain to supply integrated circuits to end-markets such as consumer electronics, life sciences, optical data communications and industrial applications.
In compliance with the MCO as stipulated by the Ministry of International Trade & Industry (MITI), SilTerra has enacted a series of measures to ensure the safety of its employees who are permitted to work on-site. These include temperature screenings of all employees entering the facility, the mandatory usage of face masks to limit the spread of the coronavirus, the application and provision of hand sanitizers, the enforcement of social distancing and daily sanitization activities within the fab premises.
SilTerra’s commitment as a corporate citizen not only includes the safety and well-being of its employees and workers, but extends to all those who are dedicated in ensuring the safety and well-being of the country.
