The story begins way back In July 3rd, 1990, where a crucial decision was made by Toray Industries Inc., Japan to set up an overseas ABS polymerization facility outside of Japan in the Pearl of Orient (Penang, Malaysia). Thus, Toray Plastics (Malaysia) Sdn. Berhad. was born.
Toray Plastics (Malaysia) Sdn. Berhad. had humble beginnings, starting with just one polymerization line (successfully commenced in early 1992) that had the capacity of 35,000 tonnes. After years of tremendous effort however, the company has emerged as a powerhouse in the industry with a production capacity of 425,000 tonnes of ABS resins.
The company's state-of-the-art polymerization and compounding processes are supported by a fully equipped research and development team that has been established since 2003. The R & D at Toray Plastics (Malaysia) Sdn. Berhad's Technology Centre focuses on conceptualizing and creating new products that capitalize on both polymerization and compounding facilities/technologies; with a strong commitment to strengthening technical support capabilities.
