Lafarge showcases its first flagship outlet in Malaysia

Lafarge Malaysia proudly showcased its first-ever flagship outlet. Sing Lee Siang (SLS), a retailer based in Muar Johor, is the first retail store in Malaysia to have a Lafarge ProSolutions Wall Panel, which showcases our end-to-end wall solutions. 


Through Lafarge Wall Solutions Display and Masons' training, contractors will have a better understanding of the different types of products available to produce the perfect wall and they will be upskilled to perform their job better. This creates value for SLS's customers and end-users. 


The retail display allows us to educate our customers to use the right product for every stage of wall construction. By educating customers using different products for different applications, we are educating customers to buy more premium products, and move away from price discussion on general purpose cement. In addition, the wall displays gives us the opportunity to reach out to home owner. We are working with Jotun paint to educate home owners to look beyond paint layer and pay attention to the materials inside the wall to get a perfect, long lasting wall.
