Business operations in Malaysia

Kuala-Lumpur-based MS Elevators Engineering Sdn. Bhd. became Toshiba's partner for the sales, installation, and maintenance service of elevators and escalators in 1982. Penang-based MS Elevators Sdn. Bhd. began manufacturing elevators for Toshiba in 1983, for sale in Malaysia and other Southeast Asian countries, and certain other territories. Both companies became joint ventures and affiliates of TELC in 2012, and its wholly owned subsidiaries in February 2022. TELC is the only elevator company with a manufacturing base in Malaysia and holds a large market share.

Acquisition of the companies and renaming them to include Toshiba, a widely recognized global brand, will allow TELC to enhance their market value. TELC also plans to reinforce management at both companies, and to expand production as a Southeast-Asian-based hub, in support of proactive expansion of Toshiba's business in the global market.
