Company history

The company explains on its website that the limited number of companies offering medical device testing services in Southeast Asia in the past resulted in medical device manufacturers in Malaysia and the regioin sending their products to the US and Europe for validation purposes. 

"The long distance between these regions led to extended delivery times, delaying product releases. In response to these challenges, SaniChem Resources was established," the company explained.
