Following the announcement from Western Digital to shut down the hard disk drive (HDD) assembly facilities in Sungei Way Free Trade Industrial Zone (FIZ) here, the American computer HDD maker and data storage company has confirmed that it has put up 14.6 acres for sale, according to a statement from Knight Frank.
The sale will involve two parcels – a 3.6-acre site and an 11-acre site. Both pieces flank the north-eastern and north-western corners of the Sungei Way FIZ, respectively.
No price was mentioned in the statement but a 2018 report by a business publication put the price of the 11-acre site at between RM160mil and RM190mil.
Said a source: “It would definitely be higher than the figure (of between RM160mil and RM190mil). The price is still under consultation.”
A double-storey building and a five-storey building with two basement levels with a total built-up area of close to 500,000 sq ft are on the smaller parcel.
The larger of the two sites has a total build-up area close to 500,000 sq ft. Both sites are equipped with high-grade clean room facilities.
