In the year 2000, Oceancash Nonwoven was founded and established in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a member country of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asia Nations). Since inception, the company has expanded to its current size of five production lines with a total annual production capacity of 7800 metric tons. The company currently has 80 employees. Later, Oceancash Nonwoven became one of the wholly owned subsidiaries of Oceancash Pacific Berhad, which was listed on the Stock Exchange of Malaysia in 2004.
Oceancash Nonwoven develops, manufactures and specializes in custom made high quality through-air bonded and thermal bonded nonwovens. Oceancash’s products are supplied for personal care hygiene applications including topsheets, acquisition layers, cores, leg cuffs and backsheets for sanitary napkins/towels and diapers. One of the company’s main specialty products is the high bulky nonwoven core.
Oceancash Nonwoven is strategically located in Malaysia, a country in between the Southeast Asian nations with close proximity to India, Pakistan and China, a region where the nonwovens market for personal care hygiene products such as sanitary napkins and diapers are growing at double-digit rates. With strong financial strength and renowned strategic and execution capabilities, Oceancash Nonwoven is planning to invest in an additional production facility and equipment in the future for further development of specialty nonwovens at the global level.
When it comes to innovation, the company says products used by the consumers of sanitary napkins and diapers in Southeast Asian countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Laos and the neighboring countries of China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, India and Pakistan, vary significantly by country, ethnicity, culture, and age segment and change frequency. The competition between a broad mix of Western, Asian and local players in this region is very intense, the company says. Oceancash is striving to stay relevant in the nonwoven market by constantly evolving its product offerings to meet consumers’ expectations regarding performance, comfort and price.
In terms of sustainability, Oceancash has been experimenting with more natural, environmentally friendly materials such as natural cotton and PLA, despite the prices of these fibers being much higher. At the same time, the company has taken measures to reduce wastage, reduce air pollution and improve process efficiency in its production processes.
