About Pertama FerroAlloys
Who we are
On December 2, 2010, Pertama Ferroalloys Sdn. Bhd., formerly known as AML Manganese (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., was established with the primary objective of producing and distributing manganese alloy products to the global steel industry while prioritizing sustainability alongside profitability. It is Malaysia’s first major-scale plant that specializes in producing ferrosilicon and manganese alloys.
The Pertama smelting plant occupies an area of 180 hectares in the Samalaju Industrial Park in Bintulu, Sarawak as the 1st manganese alloys and ferrosilicon smelting plant in Malaysia. Construction of the plant started in Q2-2012 and first tapping of the Ferrosilicon furnace was successfully carried out in Q2 2016. The next tapping for the Silicon Manganese furnaces were successfully done in Q3-2016 and Q4-2016. The remaining furnaces were commissioned at regular intervals within the next 6 months until full commercial operations in Q2-2017.
