Madewings Malaysia to set up face mask factory
24 Feb 2021
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24 — Madewings Malaysia Sdn Bhd is set to establish a high-quality face mask factory in Klang Valley to meet the country’s demand for the personal protective item.
Its chief executive officer Mohamad Zaimy Asrul Abd Razak said the company is in the process of finalising matters such as licensing, investment value, and technology transfer, which is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
“This factory will focus on producing at mask, fold at KN95 and cup type KN95, in compliance with the standard outlined by the World Health Organisation.
“We have already received the green light from our headquarters, Madewings Medical Tech Group. This factory will also create job opportunities for local residents and help them face the COVID-19 challenges,” he told reporters here, today.
Earlier, the company presented 100,000 KN95 face masks to Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon for distribution to frontliners and the needy.
Meanwhile, Mohd Rashid said the proposed factory is an achievement not only for the company but good for the country in its continuous effort to attract external investors.
“Wearing face mask has become mandatory so it is important that we use good quality types that appropriately cover the mouth and nose to avoid the COVID infection,” he said.
Madewings is a subsidiary of Guangzhou-based Madewings Medical Tech Group which specialises in protective face mask kits and respirators.
The company earned US$431 million in group sales last year.
