How it all begun…
PMMA was born from the pursuit of two burning ambitions. Malaysia’s embarking on an ambitious industrialisation programme aimed at import substitution in the early ’60′s and Matsushita’s pursuit of an active internationalisation policy .
Work on the factory started in early 1966 and PMMA was the first factory in the newly-opened industrial site. With the help of 15 pioneer workers mainly from Klang and 20 Japanese engineers, PMMA produced it first product – dry cell batteries, black and white television sets, electric fans and later, refrigerators.
