YOUNG ACE GASES TO REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT WITH ECOLUTION

Ace Gases Marketing Sdn. Bhd.

Preamble

The Industrial Gas supply market share in Malaysia has always been held by the Multi-National Corporations, with many local companies competing for a slice of this market. Established in September 2016 and fully operational within the third quarter of 2019, Ace Gases Marketing Sdn Bhd (Ace Gases) came into this market with a strong showing of highly skilled management and support staff with abundance on working experiences.

Helmed by Mr Ryan Chong Ann Tsun, a shareholder taking the lead as General Manager, Ace Gases started operating their first Nitrogen generation plant in Cyberjaya in 2018 and completed their Carbon Dioxide (CO2) manufacturing plant in Kerteh, Terengganu in close proximity to the Petronas Gas Facility, in October, 2019. Ace Gases is the subsidiary of Kelington Group Berhad.

Focused Growth (or Steadfast Growth)

Ace Gases was set-up to supply Industrial Gas to the list of Kelington Group Berhad’s clients. Actively present in 3 business segment; Setting-up Nitrogen, Hydrogen and Oxygen plants for customers, Liquid CO2 manufacturing and manufacture of Dry Ice, and Electronic Gases Trading. While both plants were being erected, Ace Gases were busy by utilizing their many years of experience in the industrial gases market in establishing known contacts with the aim of turning them into customers through trading with imported gases. This measure kept them afloat for almost 3 years and served as bridging financial support before the manufacturing operations were activated.

Standard Operating Procedures

Serving customers made up of resellers and direct ones, Ace Gases needed tanker trucks to haul the CO2 from Kerteh to their destination according to set scheduling and strict timing. Hence, the purchase of 3 units of Scania New Truck Generation for transporting their own manufactured CO2 in specially built tankers and 1 unit of the same to transport Oxygen.  

Most of Ace Gases’ customers are based in West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, namely Penang, central Selangor, Ipoh, up to Johor and cross the border into Singapore. Mr Alan Lim Chui Boon, the Operation Manager is directly responsible for keeping a well-oiled operation while keeping OPEX manageable. 

“Transporting the CO2 with the powerful Scania New Truck Generation G410A6X2NA tanker has been smooth and safe for both the drivers and other road-users. I am glad that we decided on the Scania trucks. I believe the Scania trucks justify the increase in the capital expenditure (Capex) because I am confident that in due time, they will bring down the operating expenditure (Opex) even more,” said Ryan Chong.

The Scania New Truck Generation purchase was a no-brainer as it was the brand that almost all the businesses in this particular market are using. So, using Scania trucks with the after-sales services that complement them becomes the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). Averaging 15,000 kilometres per month, the Scania trucks have been giving excellent uptime and with the Scania Repair & Maintenance (R&M) to safeguard the trucks, Ace Gases is assured of immediate attention with genuine parts to boot.

“As an undergraduate in Mechanical Engineering, I nurtured the discipline that was taught to me so that I will excel and graduate with Honours. As an employee in multinational companies in the Industrial Gas and Chemical industry, I kept the discipline so as to acquire knowledge and experience for my future. Now, as a businessman, I am instilling discipline onto my fellow colleagues and staff so that they too will excel in their undertakings and for the benefit and ultimate growth of Ace Gases Marketing Sdn Bhd,”
