Appeal for Building Fund Donation

MKMA was incorporated on 29 August 1975 with the objective to strengthen unity among industry players and to protect the interest of the industry.

The Malaysian textile industry started in the early 70s. However, the industry faced shortage and high import duty of raw materials especially yarn. MKMA has contributed great efforts to liaise with the Government and spinners. Hence, the raw material issue has been resolved.

In year 2000, MKMA purchased a building situated at 12-1, Jalan Megat, 83000 Batu Pahat, Johor and setup the national administrative office here. Unfortunately, the building is encountering land sinking and subsequent wall cracking problems due to nearby river bed drainage. In this regard, MKMA AGM 2017 has resolved to dispose this existing building and purchase a new building for office usage.  

After serious consideration, the Executive Committee Meeting held on 14 April 2018 resolved to purchase a three storey building located at 13, Jalan Penjaja, 83000 Batu Pahat, Johor. The purchase price is RM650,000. The building is conveniently situated at town area, well maintain and deem prospectus.

As we are unable to dispose the existing building yet, it was resolved to raise a building fund of Ringgit Malaysia Six Hundred Fifty Thousand only (RM650,000). We urge members and business partners to generously donate to support this project.

Thank you.
