Manufacturing capacity of these units is large. They are specialized in furniture for schools, colleges, residential houses, commercial complexes, flats, hotels etc. While Malaysian timber is used in most of the cases, some of the companies are importing raw-material – wood from other countries and manufacturing furniture. Veneers are also made in different fascinating colours and designs almost in one mm thickness. Metal coated frames for kitchen cabinets are also made with elegant finish.
