Shaping Growth

Through Innovation


In 2014, Hartalega embarked on a massive RM2.5 billion Next Generation Integrated Glove Manufacturing Complex (NGC) in Sepang, which will substantially boost our annual capacity from 14 billion to 44.6 billion pieces progressively. To date, 60 lines have started running since its first commission in the end of 2014.

The NGC project was accorded the EPP status (Entry Point Project), as part of the ETP or Government Economic Transformation Program due to its high economic impact. NGC will contribute significantly to the transformation of the glove industry in Malaysia from one that is regarded as low-tech and foreign labour intensive, to one that is acclaimed to as high-tech and innovation driven with large number of skilled workforce.

At the core of Hartalega’s expansion, is our passion for product innovation and engineering technologies. The new innovation model concentrates on science-based R&D and proprietary engineering technologies that will generate patents and tacit company know-how. This new generation of science-based R&D will create opportunities for new sources of market growth.
