Penfabric supports Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) in Textile Education and Training
Besides fulfilling business objectives, Toray Group (Malaysia) [TGM] constantly supports social projects beneficial to the local communities. Many meaningful contributions have since been carried out.
In sync with the Toray Group's CSR initiative of supporting the education efforts and human resources development of the nation, Penfabric works closely with Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) to enhance its Textile Technology programs. Many UiTM undergraduates have also undergone training and given job opportunities at the various textile mills of Penfabric over the last 40 years.
On 14th May 2015, a Presentation Ceremony was held at Penfabric Mill 2 whereby three weaving looms & accessories were presented to Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) for academic teaching and training purposes at its Shah Alam and Kuala Pilah campuses. One weaving loom was also donated to UiTM Shah Alam 6 years earlier. Besides on-site installation of these machineries, Penfabric provides the necessary technical supports.
On hand to receive the looms from Penfabric's MD, Mr H. S. Teh were Professor Dr. Jamil Hj. Salleh for UiTM Shah Alam while Associate Professor Dr. Wan Ramlee represented UiTM Kuala Pilah. Also present to witness the occasion were other representatives from UiTM and staff of Penfabric.
After a group photo session, the distinguished guests from UiTM were led to a tour of Penfabric's operations. The function ended with a tea reception thereafter.
