KOBELCO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY SDN. BHD. ("KPTec"), was incorporated in Penang, Malaysia in February 1992. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kobe Steel Ltd, Japan.
We manufacture and sell aluminum ground substrates for thin-film disks - the primary high-capacity storage medium for digital data in computers and consumer appliances. We began shipment of our ground substrates to our customers in 1993 with a modest volume of 300,000 pieces per month. In 2007, our annual shipment exceeded 300 million, thus making us the largest independent worldwide supplier of aluminum ground substrates.
