Penfabric Sdn. Berhad

To better serve its customers with high value-added fabrics, Penfabric Sdn. Bhd. (PENFABRIC) has on 25th November 2013, entered into a joint-venture agreement with TEC ONE Co. Ltd. of Japan (TECONE) to produce laminated fabrics in Prai, Penang. TECONE, established in Japan in 1965, is a world renowned textile printing, dyeing & finishing manufacturer, particularly in polyester and nylon fabrics. The company uses advanced technology with highly accurate and sensitive quality control to produce highly functional fabrics. Pursuant to the joint venture agreement, PenTec1 Sdn. Bhd. (PenTec1) was incorporated to undertake the joint-venture project. When fully operational in April 2014, the two installed lines are capable of producing some 0.5 million yards per month of 2-3 layered laminated polyester cotton-mixed and cotton fabrics. In the future, the facility will be gradually increased to 4 lines, with production capacity expected to reach 1.0 million yards per month. Due to the excellent breathability and waterproofness of the ultra-soft non-porous PU films that will be used in its production, the final fabrics will be suited for sports wears, casual outerwear, working uniform and shoes.
