DIC Asia Pacific’s Activities
Remaining nimble amid tough market conditions
Since 2020, DIC Asia Pacific has focused on safety, recovery and stable growth, while facing a growing
supply chain crisis, rising raw material prices, ongoing COVID-19 transmissions, and in more recent days
the Ukraine crisis which has led to higher energy costs. Despite these disruptions, DIC AP has remained
nimble to market changes and focused on delivering quality products and services.
Amid ongoing COVID-19 transmissions, global supply chain woes and raw material suppliers force majeure, DIC Asia Pacific has managed key raw materials and logistics to meet the daily requirements of our customers, while continuing to implement measures to keep members safe and optimize operations.
Responding to The DIC Way
Following our redefined vision statement, we are committed to improving the human condition by safely delivering color and comfort
for sustainable prosperity. Learning from our past, DIC Asia Pacific is now well-equipped with robust supply chain management, sound
financial health, and well-rounded safety protocols to ensure resilience in the face of the uncertain times ahead.
DIC Asia Pacific is focused on becoming the DIC Group’s driving force in the Asia–Pacific region. Using digital tools, Team DIC Asia is poised to drive success and engagement with all stakeholders, and ready to take on challenges of 2022 to secure a foundation for the success of DIC Vision 2030.
Rising Demand for Sustainable Food Packaging
The Asia–Pacific region has benefitted from strong demand for safer and more sustainable food packaging as consumption behaviors changed. By year-end, we delivered overall volumes above pre-COVID-19 levels, with packaging volumes exceeding the prior year. The region will work toward delivering our commitments to our valued customers.
Award–Winning Dedication and Loyalty in Vietnam
In January 2022, DIC (Vietnam) Co., Ltd., was awarded a certificate of appreciation by the Group in recognition for their strong dedication and loyalty to the Company and our customers. During the country’s nationwide lockdown between July 2021 and October 2021, 57 members resided in the plant to ensure business and operations continuity, living the vision and values of The DIC Way.
Recovering from the Aftermath of the Malaysian Floods
Last year, a massive flood struck Malaysia. Our plant was flooded and personal property damaged. Without losing precious time, the local and regional teams stepped up to strategize the plant’s recovery, as well as providing support to all affected members.
Securing Member Safety
Our top priority has always been the safety of all employees, whether they are working on-site
at the factories or working from home. The high vaccination rates across the regional countries
instilled much-needed confidence in our daily operations, as we welcomed most employees back
to the plants.
DIC Australia Pty Ltd. and DIC New Zealand Ltd. also achieved its first ISO 45001 safety accreditation. All employees of the two companies are part of this success and this is a great step forward in demonstrating a positive change in DIC’s safety culture, that has always been at the heart of our business.
