Tycoplas Sdn Bhd is an integrated manufacturer of Single Service Recyclable and Sustainable Food Packaging Products, some of which are also Reusable. The company’s diverse range of products are branded in both the domestic and export markets as TA GE® (or大哥® in Mandarin, translating to “Big Brother”). Tycoplas was established in Malaysia in the early part of 2006 and has since acquired an abundance of international expertise with exports to over 80 countries worldwide, including Europe, the Middle East, America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Asia Pacific Region, amongst others. In 2016, the company ventured into the production of a new range of open cell foam meat trays and “liquid lock” absorbent RPET meat trays and branded them as ZURP ® .
Tycoplas’ primary goal is to be a “one-stop shop” for the packaging needs of the food industry, which encompasses a myriad of business sectors from food caterers, hypermarket and supermarket chains, meat processing companies, food service outlets, online food delivery platforms to wholesalers and retailers of food packaging products.
Amid the increasing global concern regarding the environment, Tycoplas is targeting the shifting of part of its production capacity towards environmentally friendly products. In this respect, the Company has ventured into production of photodegradable products for the domestic market with certification approved by the Malaysian standards and quality board, SIRIM (Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia). The Company’s long term goal is to increase its production of environmentally friendly bagasse products made from sugar cane pulp and degradable bio-plastic material. Further, Tycoplas’ PET range of products are made with high quality Recycled PET (RPET), actively reducing the company’s carbon footprint. As part of its corporate social responsibility, Tycoplas is actively striving to increase the use of high quality recycled plastics material in its production processes. The Company encourages all of its consumers to “Rinse and Recycle” all TA GE® and ZURP ® products.
Equipped with key personnel providing an accumulated 100 years of experience, Tycoplas promises both dependability and comprehensive perspective in the manufacture of its Reusable and Single Service Recyclable Food Packaging Products. Tycoplas’ products are certified to comply with the EU and US FDA regulations ensuring its products are safe for contact with food. Tycoplas is also a certified Tier 1 YUM! Supplier, meeting YUM! Superior Quality Standards for Food Safety Procedures. In addition, the Company is in the midst of acquiring HACCP certification. Tycoplas’ products are convenient to use, non-toxic, recyclable and versatile – ideal for an extensive range of applications. Further, with extensive technical expertise and its own tool room for independent mould design and development, Tycoplas offers product customisation catering to the needs and wants of its customers.
Since Tycoplas’s incorporation, its export market has seen exponential growth. To meet the increasing consumer demands, a second plant was set up at the end of 2015, and there are ongoing plans for further expansion of the company’s production capacity. Progressive in its outlook, Tycoplas consistently evaluates processes along the value-chain to refine its products and services to better serve its customers and partners in the local and international communities. Through continuous innovation and the provision of indisputably high-quality products, Tycoplas is firmly established at the forefront of the Single Service RECYCLABLE food packaging industry.
