Signature International Bhd receives its CoC certification from MTCC at its lifestyle gallery. The company is the first in Malaysia to receive the certification.
Signature International Berhad is the first in the kitchen systems sector to obtain the Chain of Custody (CoC) Certification under the Malaysian Timber Certification Scheme (MTCS).
The CoC certification allows Signature Manufacturing Sdn Bhd to label its products as MTCS-certified, a mark of compliance to the sustainability requirements under the MTCS. It will bring added value and build the brand’s credibility.
Puan Nor’ Afiza Saim, senior general manager, received the certification from SIRIM QAS International Sdn Bhd, a MTCS-notified certification body.
“We are delighted to be awarded the MTCS certification as a testament of our commitment to promoting sustainable forest management and ensuring our products have less undesirable effects on the environment,” said Signature International Berhad Group Managing Director, Tan Kee Choong.
Congratulating Signature Manufacturing Sdn Bhd on its achievement, MTCC CEO, Mr Yong Teng Koon said, “I am pleased to see a well-established brand like Signature Kitchen embracing sustainability requirements in the manufacture of its kitchen cabinets and wardrobes. The MTCS CoC certification is a demonstration of the company’s commitment to responsible sourcing and manufacturing.
“I truly hope that the business leadership of Signature Manufacturing Sdn Bhd will spur more manufacturers to join us in our efforts to promote sustainable forest management to protect our environment and natural resources through certification under the MTCS.”
Signature International Berhad designs and produces kitchen systems under its flagship brand Signature Kitchen.
The MTCS is a national timber certification scheme developed and operated by the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC). It is endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). As of 30 November 2017, a total of 4.12 million hectares of forest areas and 359 timber companies have been certified under the MTCS.
