KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 25): Shares in both SKP Resources Bhd and VS Industry Bhd soared on Thursday in contrast to ATA IMS Bhd, which slumped after British firm Dyson terminated its relationship with the electronics manufacturing firm over alleged labour practices.

At 11.30am, SKP surged 30 sen or 54% to RM2.34 while VS Industry added 14.7% or 21 sen to RM1.63.

The jump in the two stocks could be on expectation for more contracts from Dyson after the allegations against ATA IMS.

SKP is contracted by Dyson for the manufacture of airdryers, while VS Industry is one of Dyson’s major manufacturers in Malaysia.
