Penfabric Sdn. Berhad
PENFABRIC, the First Company collaborating with Penang State Government in its Pilot Project on “Waste Segregation at Source”
18th March 2016 marked a significant day for Toray Malaysia when Penfabric was selected by the Penang State Government to undertake a pilot project on “Waste Segregation at Source”. On hand to launch the project at Penfabric Mill 3 was YB Chow Kon Yeow, the EXCO member in-charge of Local Government, Traffic Management and Flood Mitigation, in the presence of Penfabric’s MD, Mr. HS Teh.
Waste segregation is the process of dividing the respective waste products, namely paper, plastics & plastic drums, steel scrapes, e-wastes, food waste and others in an effort to reduce, reuse and recycle materials.
Presently, wastes generated in the country are disposed at 165 disposal sites and almost 80% of these landfills are closed to full capacities. Besides eco-friendly, Recycling helps conserve limited resources, reduce energy costs and keeps landfills from overflowing.
With environment consciousness in mind and aspiring to be the preferred supplier of premium grade fabrics with “Oeko-Tex STeP” certification and “Made in Green” label, Penfabric works closely with global brands to produce a wide range of fabric materials with various finishes for its supply chains.
