I guess we’ll have problems with rubber gloves of all sizes and shapes.
Malaysian rubber glove makers have objected to the proposed gas supply agreement presented by Gas Malaysia Bhd, saying it is “grossly unfair, not practical and very one-sided”.
In a statement today, the Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (MARGMA) is calling for its members not to sign any new agreement, but to seek for deferment and to consult their lawyers.
“The clauses such as “take or pay”, daily minimum or maximum surcharges on excess gas, over run and variance are not only unfair but highly impossible to practise,” its president Lim Kwee Shyan said.
“Such clauses are deemed to be detrimental to all Malaysian industries that depend on natural gas supply, glove industry included. The question to ask is how to monitor the daily and hourly limit operationally to avoid those surcharges.”
