KUALA LUMPUR: Komarkcorp Bhd’s subsidiary Komark Mask (M) Sdn Bhd has received ISO accreditation from the regulators, confirming its premises, facilities and manufacturing standards are in accordance with the requirements of the international quality management system for medical devices.
In a statement, Komarkcorp said it would now be a fully accredited manufacturer of disposable surgical face masks and planned to accelerate its plan to increase production and launch its own brand.
The company said it is looking to double its current capacity of 3.5 million pieces of masks per month by the end of November, with the installation of additional machine lines.
Komarkcorp, which announced its diversification into face masks months ago, is planning an accelerated push of its own brand of masks into local and regional markets, utilising its operations in Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia to capture the current rising demand.
With the ISO accreditation, Komarkcorp will also explore the extension of its diversification to include personnel protective equipment (PPE) manufacturing to take advantage of the current surge in demand due to the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia. — Bernama
