Porex Corporation will unveil its new customer service center and expanded manufacturing plant on April 26 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The company is a leading global innovator of engineering solutions for the filtering, venting, wicking, diffusing, absorbing and applying of gases and liquids across a wide spectrum of applications, 

The customer service center will house Porex’s growing commercial, business development, marketing, customer service and product development engineering teams for Asia Pacific while the expansion of its manufacturing facility in Kuala Lumpur will enable Porex to scale up production of unique fiber lines to better serve customers locally and globally.

The new manufacturing plant will see a 40% increase in operational floor space – a growth that brings Porex’s capabilities even closer to customers and customers in the region.

The expansion plans come at a time when Porex has been deepening its global footprint and unmatched expertise. With the acquisition of Essentra’s Porous Technologies business last year to strengthen its leading technology in the industry, Porex is continuing to build up its presence worldwide.

Porex’s growing commercial activities are anticipated to lead to greater local staff expansion, as both the commercial and engineering teams are poised for growth. The company also hopes to gain and contribute to the business synergies in Shah Alam’s Hicom Industrial Estate in Malaysia, where it can support customers and align with other industry players to support local economic expansion.

“At the present, this facility is focused on key application markets that include cosmetics, automotive, medical and writing instruments,” said Bill Foughty, Senior Vice President Global Operations at Porex, “Examples of our technologies are porous nibs for writing instruments and cosmetics applicators, venting technologies for electronics, and filtration solutions for biomedical applications.

Added fiber production capabilities

In addition to Porex’s well-established sintered particles lines, the expansion of its manufacturing plant will enable the company to greatly expand its production capabilities for bonded and nonwoven fiber lines.

Using unique synthetic fiber binding technologies, Porex can produce a wide assortment of extruded profile geometries, and its extensive experience in handling numerous fiber material combinations will be key for creating new and innovative fiber blends.

The company offers capabilities in customizing and optimizing the fluid handling dynamics of capillary structures for different polymeric fiber blends, creating ideal solutions for a wide array of applications.
