Toray Industries (Malaysia) Sdn. Berhad
Industrial Visit by Kokugakuin University, Japan to Toray Group (Malaysia)

Recently, Toray Group Malaysia (TGM) hosted a group of 8 students and 1 professor from Kokogakuin University, Japan to an industrial tour of Toray Plastics (Malaysia) [TPM] on the 9th September 2014. The educational visit was to enable the undergraduates from the Faculty of Economics to gain first-hand industrial knowledge of Japanese business operations overseas, particularly on the topic of globalization of Japanese corporations, like Toray Japan. On hand to welcome the visitors was TPM MD, Mr. Takehiko Takayama and some key personnel who were willing to share their expertise, knowledge and working experiences in Penang, Malaysia. Many other interesting topics, ranging from “the advantages of business operation in Malaysia”, “quality of workforce”, “logistic management”, “R&D functions in Malaysia” and “cultural and custom differences” were raised during visit. The management is glad that the learning experiences at TGM have benefited the foreign students greatly.
