Group of Companies
ABRIC Berhad had its beginnings in 1983 as a manufacturer of security seals for the transport of palm oil and latex. Its patented design became a global industry standard, and use of ABRIC’s seals soon spread across a range of industrial sectors. ABRIC was incorporated as a private limited company in 1989 and then converted to a public limited company in 1997. ABRIC was listed on Bursa Malaysia on the 11th of January 1999.
By 2007, ABRIC’s workforce had grown to 800 employees spread over five countries across three continents, with its products present in more than 80 countries. The company’s state-of-the-art facilities in Malaysia, Thailand and China had the capacity to produce more than a billion seals a year and ranked within the top five providers of security sealing solutions in the world.
In 2014, ABRIC sold its core business of production, turning it into a cash rich shell company and was later delisted in 2016. In 2018, ABRIC’s founder and Chairman, Dato Albert Ong, turned the company’s attention towards education, with the intent of making high quality and international learning affordable. Orbix Education's first school was opened in Muar in August 2018 and a second was opened in Batu Pahat in 2020. Two more schools are slated to open in 2021. As of August 2020, ABRIC has expanded its company portfolio with a new subsidiary: Senta Academy, which specialises in corporate training and sport event management.
Orbix International Schools offers quality schooling at accessible prices. Orbix schools incorporate Cambridge IGCSE and Fieldwork Education (UK) with the national curriculum, and also focuses on a strong foundation in both English and Mandarin. The group will also launch a nation first: the ‘School of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics’ is the result of a partnership with Chinese AI giant, iFLYTEK, with a syllabus that will prepare students for a technology-driven world. Orbix is dedicated to moulding our children into the leaders of tomorrow. Each campus has its own uniquely crafted focus: the school in Muar is the ‘School of Entrepreneurship’ while Orbix’s Batu Pahat campus is the ‘School of Adventure Sports and Nature’.
