The MARDEC group produces a wide variety of rubber grades and markets them internationally.
Through its subsidiaries and associated companies, MARDEC has also developed extensive downstream activities. These convert natural rubber into value-added products that increase export earnings, as well as serving the needs of the domestic market.
MARDEC continues to seek potential investors from all parts of the world to begin new ventures in rubber and related products, both in Malaysia and abroad.
MARDEC Berhad (formerly known as the Malaysian Rubber Development Corporation or MRDC) was established on 20th September 1969 as a fully-owned government company.
MARDEC’s main purpose was to upgrade the quality of smallholders’ rubber to meet international requirements, and to provide them with an assured and fair marketing outlet.
Within a year, MARDEC was the proud owner of three factories located in Meru (Selangor), Rantau (Negeri Sembilan) and Grisek (Johor).
These factories together produced no less than 10,000 tonnes of rubber annually.
From its humble beginnings, MARDEC remained true to its commitment to serve the processing needs of smallholders throughout Peninsular Malaysia, and by 1976 MARDEC owned a total of 16 factories nation-wide. They produced an annual total of 120,000 tonnes whilst serving over 100,000 Malaysian smallholders.
This made MARDEC the largest producer and exporter of all premium and volume grade Standard Malaysian Rubbers (SMR) in the country. Later, MARDEC underwent a period of consolidation and rationalization.
Currently, we produce a staggering 250,000 tonnes of SMR rubber, latex and specialty rubbers from our efficient factories. MARDEC also takes pride in being the first producer and trader of smallholders' rubber in the world to be awarded the prestigious ISO 9001 certification.
In 1998, MARDEC’s forward-thinking approach sent us offshore to handle the processing and export of rubber and latex from neighbouring countries such as Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam, together with India and China.
Today, MARDEC’s core business remains in rubber processing, marketing and trading whilst operating with a more diversified production base, producing a varied range of products with a greater competitive edge to better serve its customers all over the world.
