About Eksons Corporation Berhad
Incorporated in 1990, Eksons Corporation Bhd was listed on the Second Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (now Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd). After a reverse takeover in April 2000, Eksons was subsequently promoted to the Main Board in February 2001. The Eksons Group specialises in the manufacturing of tropical thin plywood of less than 3.0 millimeter in thickness, particularly in the 2.5 and 2.7 millimeter categories. The plywood is sold under the “Panda” brand name, which is an internationally established name known for its high quality. The thin plywood is used mainly for internal furnishing and decorative purposes. Eksons also produces veneer and sawn timber, targeted largely at the export market. One of Eksons’ competitive advantages is our ability to convert even low grades of logs into high quality plywood which means we are not hampered by lack of options in our suppliers. We have 2 factories with a combined installed capacity of 285,000 m3 per annum, located in Sibu, in the state Sarawak and Tawau in the state of Sabah. Over 90% of our production are exported, mainly to the US, Middle East, North Africa, Taiwan & Korea. The Eksons Group also has investments in property development and property holding.
