Get to know us




Malaplast Co.,Ltd was established in Thailand in 1957. The company’s founder was Dr.Mala Sittachitt, a medical doctor who was a keen entrepreneur. The original company was named Mala Plastic and produced melamine tableware for the local & export market. Mala Plastics continued to build it’s melamine business over the next decade by focusing on producing high quality products while innovating automation process in that field. In 1971, Dr. Mala Sittachitt passed away and the organization was then led by his son, Mr. Manu Sittachitt

In 1971, Manu added a new dimension to the business i.e. blow molding and injection molding in order to respond to the growing Thai market for plastic products.

In 1980, we purchased 16,000 sq meters of land in Buddharaksa Road and moved from our original location to where we currently are sited now. The following year in 1981, Mala Plastic made a joint venture with Rosti A/S Denmark in order expand our business and the company name was changed to Mala Chemical Industries Co., Ltd.

Mala Chemical Industries Co Ltd was the 1st company in Thailand to produce 20 liter containers for oil & gas industry which was at that time growing rapidly. In 1987, we started working on complicated multi cavity molds which were built in Mala Chemical Industries. Among the key products which we did was moulding Flip Top Cap for Lever Brothers. During the next 8 years Mala was on an expansion trial . We acquired more land in Buddharaksa road adjoining our factory and built a total of 5 factories and 1 Tool shop. During that period we expanded our factory to 75,000 sq meter and had a built up of 46,000 sq meter.

In 2002, the Sittachitt family & AETAS bought back all the share from Rosti A/S and changed it’s name to Malaplast Co.,Ltd, thus ending the 20 years business relationship with Rosti.

Over the last few years, Malaplast has been expanding it’s process. Among the most significant improvements in the organization has been:
• expansion and automation of its 2nd process (i.e. spray painting, pad printing,…etc)
