Toray Industries (Malaysia) Sdn. Berhad
Industrial Visit by Miyakonojo National College of Technology, Japan to Toray Group (Malaysia)

On 6 March 2014, Toray Group Malaysia (TGM) hosted a group of 30 university students, including two professors from the Miyakonojo National College of Technology, Japan to an industrial tour at Penfabric Mill 4. Flying all the way from Miyazaki Japan, the education visit was to enable the electrical and computer engineering students to gain some foreign industrial experiences, especially in Penang, Malaysia. Besides the guided tour of Penfabric, which allow the enthusiastic students to have a first-hand knowledge of real live textile operations, some key TGM’s Japanese personnel were on hand to share their expertise and working experiences in Penang, Malaysia. Many interesting topics, ranging from production, sales to engineering operations were enthusiastically raised and satisfactory answered at the forum. Among the relevant topics discussed were “the advantages of business operation in Malaysia”, “merits of global business operations”, “challenges and working life in Malaysia” and “cultural and custom differences between Malaysia and Japan”. The education visit was certainly a memorable and eye-opening event for the foreign students. TGM is glad that this visitation, on the request of the college has greatly benefited the students.
