PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

TOP GLOVE: [UPDATED] MEDIA STATEMENT ON NATIONAL WATER SERVICES COMMISSION (SPAN) STATMENT

 

Shah Alam, Monday, 30 May 2022 Top Glove refers to the statement issued today by the National Water Services Commission (SPAN).

 

Several of Top Glove’s factories have successfully installed digitalised water meters to monitor water usage in real time, with the intention of digitalising and automating the recording system, in line with the Company’s efforts throughout its manufacturing process. 

 

One of our Engineers mistakenly replaced the Syabas water meter with the Company’s digitalised water meter at only one of our factories on 11 April 2019.

 

Top Glove immediately acted upon being alerted to this and implemented the following remedial measures: 

 

a)   Reinstalling the Syabas water meter on 28 May 2019; and

 

b)  Fully paid the sum of about RM56,000, of which RM52,000 was for an estimated 47 days' water usage, based on Air Selangor's calculations, which the Company has fully paid.

 

The Company wishes to clarify that its actions were part of its digitalisation initiatives and that the matter has been resolved.
