On 1 April 2015, Melewar Industrial Group Berhad ceased to be the holding company of the Company following the completion of the disposal of the entire equity interest in the Company to its subsidiary, Mycron Steel Berhad. The acquisition of the Company will enable Mycron Steel Group to strengthen their market position in the steel industry in terms of revenue by diversifying their existing business of manufacturing and trading of colled rolled coil to downstream activities i.e. manufacturing and trading of steel pipes and tubes and is expected to result in synergistic benefits to the enlarged Mycron Steel Group.
The year 1969 heralded the establishment of a Malaysian-Japanese joint venture into the steel pipe manufacturing industry with the establishment of Aurora Steel Tube Manufacturing Sdn Bhd. The company went into production with one production line in January 1970 at its factory in Jalan Gudang Shah Alam.
To mark the participation of Maruichi Steel Tube Ltd, Osaka, Japan in 1972, a new name was adopted for the company - Maruichi Malaysia Steel Tube Sdn Bhd. Following a change in ownership, the company was renamed as Melewar Industrial Group Berhad (MIG) in November 2003. Product brand was then changed to MIG-MELEWAR.
Within a matter of 2 years the company expanded its operations; a second factory equipped with additional production lines and hot dip galvanising facilities went into operation on a 7-acre site in Jalan Utas, Shah Alam in 1974. In 1975 the company was converted into a public company.
The year 1982 saw the opening of the company's No. 3 factory at Persiaran Selangor, Shah Alam and the commencement of operation of the company's 100% owned subsidiary, Melewar Steel Services Sdn Bhd, also in Shah Alam.
Maruichi Malaysia Steel Tube Berhad was listed on the Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad in 1986. Our Corporate Headquarters and the latest No.5 factory was built at Persiaran Selangor in 1990. That same year also marked the commencement of operations of our subsidiary, Mycron Steel Berhad, the first Cold Rolled Coil manufacturer in Malaysia. Mycron Steel Berhad was listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad in June 2004.
Presently MIG has an installed capacity of more than 22,000m/tonnes per month with the ability to manufacture pipes from 10mm to 355mm O.D. MIG's products are widely used in the construction, furniture, automotive, bicycle and engineering industries. Today after more than three decades of experience in the steel pipe industry, the brand MIG-MELEWAR spells quality, having made its name in the steel industry where its products are highly acclaimed by both local as well as international users
