Helipro ventured into the Adhesive Tapes business in the year 1987. Our first office located in Taman Segar, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, which is a shop lot with floor area close to 3,300sq feet, included the basement and ground floor. We started only with 2 operation machines and 7 staffs to operate the business. During the initial period, our sales volume was around 576 thousand sq meters per annum, mainly supply to the Malaysian market.
In year 1998, we moved into our factory in Balakong which is approximately 20,000 sq feet. Helipro is confident that the tape industry is growing fast as the Malaysian economy is also picking up.
With the confident in market growth, Helipro invested 3 more new machines and 12 new staffs to serve the market. We also partner with several overseas importers and exporters to expand our business.
With the support from local and overseas clients, Helipro has grown from strength to strength. In year 2008, our market sales volume increased significantly to 1.44 million sq meters per month.
Helipro started to purchase a double storey new factory which occupies an area over 50,000 sq feet and increased staff numbers to 28. We also added 12 new machines and a printing machine. To date, our yearly output of tapes reached around 34.56 million sq meters.
