MDBC: Visit to Sime Darby & MOF

June 15, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Dear Members,

For photos from this event, please click on the icon above.

Let MDBC take you on a unique day – trip outing to the west coast, (just south of Port Klang), in cooperation with fellow members Sime Darby Plantation (SDP) and MOF Production (formerly known as Markant Office Furniture).

On Thursday, 15 June you will get chance to discover everything on palm oil plantations and well – being in the workplace.


SDP is the world’s largest producer of certified sustainable palm oil and is present in over 90 countries, leading the industry for two centuries. They are leaders in innovation, employing some of the best minds in the industry to produce superior quality products, serving customers across the world. This is the unique opportunity to visit a flagship plantation at Carey Island.

MOF Production (formerly known as Markant Office Furniture), established in 1948, is an international furniture manufacturer and designer of working environments.  From collaborative zones for brainstorming, to quiet spaces for focused work and relaxation areas for recharging, MOF Production has production locations in The Netherlands and Malaysia (Jenjarom), and sales offices in The Netherlands, Malaysia, and Australia.  MOF Production has the ideal combination of international know – how and Dutch common sense. They deploy both of these factors in order to realize their mission: healthier working.
