When it comes to metal ceilings and louvre ventilation systems, DML Products blows away the competition with its innovative designs and technologies that combine excellent quality, aesthetics and cost-effectiveness. Having solidified its market leadership in Malaysia, the company is looking to broaden its reach and bring its cutting-edge designs to the rest of Asia.

Led by founder and group managing director Chong Kon Hee, DML introduced sun louvres to the Malaysian market 15 years ago. Chong pioneered metal ceilings and louvres made from galvanised steel, an inexpensive and environmentally friendly alternative material. An example of DML's innovative design is its highly durable clipping system, which can withstand wind speeds of up to 126km per hour.

"DML's research and development department is focused on complying with specific engineering requirements," Chong says. "Our sun louvres even surpass expectations by not only providing ventilation, but also good air conditioning and reduced energy consumption."

DML's products are assembled at its 86,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Rawang Integrated Industrial Park, where the company melds technology with design that adheres to strict safety codes to deliver high-quality, tailor-made products. "Our success hinges on producing fresh and unique designs," says Saiful Rahim, group general manager. "We also develop complementary products to deliver greater offerings to customers."

DML is on the lookout for Singaporean, Japanese and South Korean partners for construction projects across Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Bangladesh. Aiming to become Asia's leading manufacturer of metal ceilings and sun louvres, the company is working closely with local partners to build relationships with public- and private-sector customers. This approach will also support its expansion into Thailand, Indonesia and Cambodia. In Singapore, DML is strengthening its presence with plans for developing a state-of-the-art manufacturing site.

"With government and private-sector construction projects on high gear, our expansion plans are on track," Chong says. "Our drive for quality at the right price makes us the perfect partner."
