Malaysia is becoming an increasingly attractive growth market for international clothing retailers. The yarn and fabric manufacturer Penfabric Sdn. Berhad, which belongs to the Japanese Toray Group, is one of the leading companies in the Malaysian textile industry.
 
The majority of the company's product range meets the human ecology criteria of OEKOTEX Standard 100. Penfabric's portfolio is huge, ranging from sheer fabrics for scarves and ties, fine materials for shirts and blouses, colourful materials for outer garments, functional fabrics for sportswear, patterned materials for home textiles, or durable furnishing covers right through to specially treated materials for workwear and protective clothing made of pure cotton or cotton/synthetic fibre mixes. 
 
Penfabric also produces and distributes undyed yarns and fabrics for further processing. The company, founded in 1973, currently employs approximately 1600 staff members in its four production facilities in the Malaysian state of Penang. 
 
The four factories are organised on the basis of a systematic, vertically integrated production method in accordance with the textile production levels: spinning mill, weaving mill, textile dyeing and finishing and surface finishing. Mr. H.S. Teh, Managing Director, sees huge advantages in this method of production: "Thanks to our perfectly coordinated production processes that are tailored to each other, we can ensure consistently excellent quality and also react promptly to market trends, whether for the finest yarn-dyed qualities in checks or stripes, the highest-quality prints in brilliant colours or specially treated fabrics with functions such as a non-iron finish, for example." 
 
Most of the manufactured goods are exported to other regions of Asia, EU countries or the United States. In addition to first-class quality and a strong focus on customers, the company's economic success is due to effective measures relating to environmental protection, occupational health and safety, and sustainability. 
 
All the Penfabric production facilities are certified in accordance with the specifications of quality management system ISO 9001-9008, and the ISO 14001 environmental management system is implemented throughout the company. 
 
For some time, the company has also been investing in concrete steps to improve its environmental balance. Since 2008, the company has been able to make sensational energy savings of 3 to 5% annually, by installing ultra-modern energyand water-saving equipment.
