MBMR's Business

Wheels


Oriental Metal Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd. (OMI), a joint venture with Central Motor Wheel Company Limited and Toyota Tsusho Corporation, of Japan, is an established manufacturer of steel wheels in Malaysia. Since the last three years, the adoption rate between steel wheels and alloy wheels has changed with an increasing shift to alloy wheels.
 
Alloy wheels have become more popular and has been gaining share of the wheel market. As part of our strategic growth plan, OMI launched its alloy wheel plant project in early 2012 to tap into the growing demand for alloy wheels both locally and abroad. OMI fills a gap in the supply of OEM-quality standard alloy wheel in Malaysia (OEM : original equipment manufacturer) and is positioned to capture the growing shift in market trends in preference for alloy wheels.

Designed with the highest specifications and state-of-the-art technology for meeting international standards of quality and requirements of OEMs, OMI aim to supply for both domestic and export markets with which it eventually would have a capacity of one million of wheels per annum. It started exports to replacement market (REM) in small quantities in 2013 and is actively engaging potential customers, who are currently assessing the plant and discussing potential supply in the future. OMI started supply of alloy wheels to Perodua in March 2014.

Combined with the steel wheel manufacturing and tyre assembly capabilities, OMI is now the largest integrated Tier-1 wheel manufacturer in Malaysia.
