We consolidate and adapt to the rapidly shifting global market while creating new trends for consumer and society. Our team has expanded from just 15 members on 2013 to 292 members as of today.
Apart from R&D Centres, we also have researchers in various other factory departments as well, which totals up to 624 researchers in entire Top Glove as of 15th January 2023. Under the Talent Development Program initiatives, TG Academy offers postgraduate scholarships for Scholars to work under collaboration projects between R&D Centre and Universities in Malaysia, and obtain their Master's or PhD degree at the same time.
