About Us



The Malaysian Tin Products Manufacturers' Association (MTPMA) was formed in 1989. Its formation was initiated by the Tin Industry (Research and Development) Board under its activity programme in supporting the implementation of the Industrial Master Plan (IMP), which it is tasked to develop the downstream tin-based products manufacturing industry. The primary objective of the MTPMA is to promote and enhance the interests and development of the downstream tin-based products manufacturing industry. Its membership covers the three major sub-sectors of the industry in this country, namely pewter, tinplate and solders. The Association has a total membership of 16 company members currently.


The Management Committee of the MTPMA meets regularly to map-out and chart the policy direction of the Association. The Solder Sub-Committee of the Association, formed to provide solder company members with a forum for discussion, also meets regularly to deliberate on issues confronting the tin solder sub-sector and to consider measures to overcome them. The meetings were also for members to report and to share their knowledge, experience and expectations of the solder market and their products. The Association's Newsletter Editorial Sub-Committee also meets regularly on a quarterly basis to edit the Association's Newsletter, which is published four times a year called the Malaysian Tin Products. The Association organises from time to time, events such as workshops, seminars and talks for its members and the fraternity.   


Representatives of the MTPMA regularly attend briefings held by the Government for the private sector on issues affecting the manufacturing industry. The downstream tin-based products manufacturing industry has been growing at a steady pace over the years. It is an important sector for value-adding and import substitution. 

The MTPMA together with the Tin Board will continue to play an important supportive role in helping towards maintaining a healthy development of an important minerals based products industry in line with the country‚Äôs industrialisation objectives.
