Conferment of Penang State Award on Toray Chief Representative for Malaysia

Toray Chief Representative for Malaysia Teh Hock Soon was awarded the “Darjah Setia Pangkuan Negeri” (Order of the Defender of State – Knight Commander) that carries the distinguished title of ‘Dato’, in conjunction with the Governor of Penang’s official birthday celebration on July 10, 2021. This prestigious award is bestowed on an individual in a highly respected position who has contributed significantly to the state and local community. Dato’ Teh joined Nan Sing Dyeing Works (now known as Penfabric) in 1976 as a Sales Executive and has steadily moved up the ranks to become the Toray Chief Representative for Malaysia and Managing Director of Toray Industries (Malaysia) since 2018. He has also been appointed as a Vice President of Toray Industries, Inc. from 2020. Upon receiving the award, Dato’ Teh said, ‘This special recognition is not just for me personally but also serves as a symbol of appreciation for the contributions of Toray Group to Penang, a pioneer of the state’s industrialization programme since the early 1970s and still maintaining an important presence here with over 2000 employees.” Following Toray Group (Malaysia) (‘TGM’) tradition to mark the auspicious occasion, a tree-planting ceremony was held on September 14, 2021, whereby Dato’ Teh planted a ‘Podocarpus Macrophyllus’ tree within the premises of Penfabric with the presence of TGM top management. In his brief address, Dato' Teh expressed his gratitude and appreciation to all Associates who had contributed to the success of TGM.
