KPKKT was established on 13th. Mac 1980 is a subsidiary of Golden Pharos Berhad ("GPB"), a company listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia. Other subsidiary companies under GPB are among others Pesaka Trengganu Berhad, Pesama Timber Corporation Sdn. Bhd., Permint Plywood Sdn. Bhd. and Golden Pharos Glass Sdn. Bhd.
KPKKT has been awarded the Forest Stewardship Council ("FSC®") certification endorsement since 21 April 2008, which was applicable for five years, by Scientific Certification Systems (“SCS”), a leader and pioneer in third-party auditing and certification of forest management operations around the world, using the SCS-FSC Interim Standard for Forest management Certification in Malaysia Version 5.0 2014 for well-managed forests. This certification verifies that KPKKT’s tropical forest of 108,900 hectares in Dungun Timber Complex (“DTC”) are managed according to the rigorous international standards of the "FSC®" under a selective cutting approach that maintains continuous forest cover and species diversity. The certification has been re-certified for another five years until 20 October 2018.
KPKKT is the only timber management company in the world that has successfully completed the first 25-year cycle of managing the tropical rainforest under the Malaysian Selective Management System ("SMS"). From 2008 onwards, we have to brace ourselves in managing the same forest area under the second cycle, this time around for a period of 30 years. We are confident of being able to do this and continue to meet the high standard of "FSC®".
