Southland Rubber Myanmar
Southland Myanmar Rubber Co. Ltd
Prior to Southland’s establishment, Myanmar natural rubber was commonly exported through its border as raw material to other rubber producing countries to be further processed for sales to international users.
In 2017, Southland decided to develop the Myanmar Rubber industry by establishing its first factory in Yangon. Southland Myanmar Rubber company was established in June 2017 with vision of developing and bringing out the best of Myanmar’s rubber quality to the international market. Since than Myanmar’s natural rubber quality has improved greatly, most natural rubber are now exported directly to end users instead of (as) raw material to rubber processing factories in other countries. The shipping of rubber in Plastic pallets has also become a standard practice for its MSR export.
Southland Myanmar Rubber Company Ltd first factory was in Thilawa, Yangon. The Yangon’s factory had a production capacity of 3,000mt/month.
By 2018, Southland expanded its natural rubber operation with its 2nd factory in Thanbyazayat, located in Mon State. It was a natural choice as Mon State was the biggest natural rubber producing area.
Southland Myanmar, Thanbyazayat (SLR TBZ) currently occupied a land area of 30 acres. With a bigger space, Southland Myanmar was able to consolidate its operation by moving its Yangon operation in Thanbyazayat. The total production capacity in the TBZ factory is now 6,000mt a month.
Beside its own production, Southland Myanmar has also formed strategic partnerships and cooperations with Dawei Golden Land and MSP on RSS production and marketing.
Southland Myanmar Rubber Company Ltd, is also the first Natural Rubber Company in Myanmar to be awarded Certification.
As part of Southland Rubber, Southland Myanmar believes in the need to ensure the sustainability of the natural rubber industry as well as in protecting the environment for all its stakeholders.
