Company Background.
History
Established in 1991 with only one factory and three production lines, Top Glove has since grown by leaps and bounds to become the world's largest rubber glove manufacturer. Top Glove places customer satisfaction at the very heart of its business; hence has put a great deal of emphasis on research and development to ensure continual improvement in its product quality and production efficiency. In order to stay ahead of the curve in product development, it collaborates closely with government agencies and ministries to keep itself abreast of the latest development in rubber research technology. It has now earned itself a reputation of being a one-stop glove sourcing center offering an extensive and complete range of high-quality, high value-added and cost-effective rubber gloves. It was listed on the Malaysian bourse, Bursa Saham Kuala Lumpur on 27 March 2001. In a short span of slightly more than a year, on 16 May 2002, Top Glove Corporation Berhad's listing was successfully promoted from the Second Board to the Main Market of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange. Top Glove has a shareholder fund of RM1.09 billion or USD358 million with an annual turnover of about RM2.05 billion or USD682 million as at financial year ended 31 August 2011. It is also one of the component stocks of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia ("FBM") Mid 70 Index, FBM Top 100 Index and FBM Emas Index with a market capitalization of RM3.01 billion as at 31 August 2011. In line with its objective of capturing a larger share in the world market, the company has undertaken a rapid expansion of its capacity. Its manufacturing facilities which spread across Malaysia, Thailand and China grew from 5 in 2001 to 21 in 2011, and will soon be expanding to 23 by end of 2012. Top Glove exports to approximately 1000 customers in over 185 countries through its sales and marketing offices in Malaysia, the United States and Germany.
