KOITO MANUFACTURING CO LTD
Technical License Agreement (TLA)

July 20th 1994- EPMB through its wholly-owned subsidiary EP Polymers (M) Sdn Bhd signed a Technical License Agreement with Koito Manufacturing Co. Ltd. Of Japan to acquire the license to manufacture and sell automotive lighting equipment using Koito's technical expertise.

Under this agreement, EPMB was able to develop the technology and engineering skills to manufacture headlamps and other automotive lighting equipment under Koito's guidance, using the technical data provided and developed by Koito.

EPMB's partnership with the Koito Group for over a decade has helped EPMB mature significantly in its design and production of automotive lighting equipment.

Koito's extensive experience in developing new and safer lighting technology made it a fitting technical partner to collaborate with for EPMB's production of headlamps and rear combination lamps.

EPMB has since started conducting lamp design in-house as well as with other parties.
