The Association Of Malaysian Bumiputra Timber & Furniture Entrepreneurs or PEKA as it is better and more widely known, traces its beginnings to a group of Bumiputra loggers, sawmillers, timber traders, timber exporters and furniture manufacturers. Realizing the need for collaboration among the Bumiputra players in the industry to compete more effectively in the market, PEKA was founded in 1991 with the principal objective of providing assistance to its members in the following areas:

  • Material Resources
  • Technical Expertise
  • Product Design
  • Marketing

In the true enterprising spirit in which it was formed, membership in PEKA is open to all Bumiputras - from the humble traditional 5-man workshop to the large hi-tech factories with over 300 employees.

There are five bureaus under PEKA which are responsible for Membership & Information Services, Research & Support Services, Furniture Development, Forestry Matters and Industrial Training. Although each has its own functions, they are fully integrated to offer a wide spectrum of services such as

  • Providing information on the latest research and market situation
  • Organizing training courses
  • Organizing forums, dialoque sessions and participation in exhibitions
  • Assistance in establishing co-operative arrangements such as consortiums
  • Advisory services and assistance in seeking solutions to wood-related issues
  • Responding to product enquiries from its members and the public.

In order to capitalize on the growing demand for quality wood products both locally and overseas, PEKA formed a company, Konsortium PPKKBM Sdn Bhd, in 1993 as a vehicle for its members to market their products.
