posted Sep 13, 2015, 1:28 AM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Nov 5, 2015, 7:38 AM ]

We are eventually coming to the last quarter of the highly successful year of 2015 where Coway Malaysia without doubt has successfully earned its place to become the household name for water and air purifiers for all Malaysians.

This success does not come easy, as it witnesses an accumulation of hard work and dedications by our teams that manage to expand our customer base exponentially by penetrating into new areas that never been ventured before.

We are now glad and proud that the ever popular Coway water and air purifiers are available in every city, pekan and kampung throughout Malaysia.

Realizing that there are a lot more households out there that have not had the opportunity to own a Coway, we are extending our promotion to last until end of 2015.

As part of our solution to households having low water pressure, we are bringing in our latest Coway Nanotrap Technology which will allow sufficient safe-for-drinking filtered water in high crowd areas like factories, colleges, schools, masjid and surau.

Coway Nanotrap Technology

The Nanotrap filter uses an electromagnetic force that absorbs 99.99% of viruses and 99.9999% of bacteria onto the filter. It provides more hygienic and cleaner water than general UV and UF water filtration systems. It provides high quality drinking water with high flow rate, even without pressure drop. Compared to a conventional filter such as UF filter which has 0.2µm, the 10 times larger pore size (2µm) of Coway’s Nanotrap filter produces abundant drinking water with high flow rate – even still effective in low water pressure areas.

The Nanotrap technology is currently available in Neo CHP-260N.
Oh yeah, the 
Nanotrap filter effectively eliminates odor yet does not affect the essential minerals that creates healthy and refreshing water.

Pencemaran udara dalaman

posted Sep 12, 2015, 6:26 PM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Sep 12, 2015, 6:36 PM ]

Selalunya apabila negara dilanda jerebu berikutan cuaca panas dan kesan daripada pembakaran terbuka, ramai mula mencari topeng muka sebagai salah satu langkah mengurangkan debu, zarah dan partikel halus berbahaya memasuki rongga pernafasan.

Namun, tidak ramai pula yang berasa risau tentang pencemaran udara dalam sesuatu kawasan kecil seperti ruang pejabat, bilik tidur atau rumah.

Amat jarang sekali perkara ini diberi perhatian kerana kebanyakan daripada kita begitu yakin, udara dalaman lebih bersih daripada di luar.

Presiden Persatuan Alergi dan Imunologi Malaysia, Dr. Amir Hamzah Abdul Latiff berkata, sebenarnya udara dalaman yang tercemar juga boleh mendatangkan kemudaratan kepada kesihatan manusia.

Katanya, sebanyak 30 hingga 40 peratus penduduk di negara ini mengalami alahan sinus berpunca daripada udara dalaman yang tidak bersih.


Alahan terjadi akibat kekuatan reaksi sensitif pada sistem ketahanan badan. Bagi individu yang tidak tahu sama ada mereka mengalami alahan beberapa ujian boleh dilakukan. Selepas dipastikan, barulah dikenalpasti punca alahan.

Biasanya alahan bawaan udara yang sering berlaku pada manusia ialah daripada habuk, hama, bulu binatang dan sebagainya.

Terdapat juga alahan yang berpunca daripada pemakanan, pengambilan ubat yang tidak bersesuaian dan akibat sengatan serangga tertentu," kata Dr. Amir Hamzah yang ditemui di Kuala Lumpur, baru-baru ini.


Beliau berkata, antara punca lain pencemaran udara dalaman ialah disebabkan asap rokok, karbon monoksida dari luar, gas memasak, karosen dan banyak lagi.

Atas dasar itu katanya, orang ramai perlu mengetahui tentang kawalan kualiti udara dalaman kerana semua jenis pencemaran udara dalaman yang dinyatakan tadi berpotensi menyebabkan alahan.

Habuk dan hama contohnya terkumpul daripada partikel bulu manusia, fiber daripada fabrik, bulu binatang dan kutu yang ada pada bulu tersebut.

Menerusi pengalaman saya, hampir 90 peratus alahan yang dialami pesakit adalah berpunca daripada hama. Hama memang tidak boleh dilihat dengan mata kasar, sebab itu ia perlu diberi perhatian oleh ibu bapa supaya anak-anak tidak mengalami alahan yang berpunca daripada hama," tambahnya.

Menurut Dr. Amir Hamzah, para doktor akan memastikan tahap alahan dengan melakukan beberapa ujian seperti ujian gores kulit serta ujian darah igE dengan menggunakan bukti asas diagnostik.

Namun katanya, apa yang merunsingkan tentang alahan ialah apabila seseorang ahli keluarga mengalaminya, seluruh keluarga juga berpotensi menghidapinya.

Adakalanya juga sesuatu penyakit daripada alahan boleh menjadi punca terjadi penyakit lain yang juga mempunyai gejala sama seperti reaksi alahan.

Para doktor akan memastikannya, sebagai contoh hidung berair, tersumbat atau gatal. Pemeriksaan perlu dilakukan agar alahan tidak menjadi lebih berbahaya.

Sindrom alahan berbahaya ini dikenali dengan nama anaphylaxis. Jadi masyarakat perlu tahu bahawa alahan bukan sekadar hidung gatal berair malah turut berpotensi mengancam nyawa.

Sistem ketahanan tubuh manusia mempunyai banyak sel yang akan memberi tindak balas kepada bakteria normal. Apabila sesuatu menjadi tidak betul, maka sistem tersebut akan secara semula jadi bertindak untuk melawan jangkitan.

Namun, tidak semua masa sistem boleh bertindak dan apabila ini terjadi maka keadaan individu akan menjadi lebih serius seperti serangan asma," jelasnya.

Udara dalam rumah bersih

Sebagai ibu bapa bertanggungjawab, beliau menasihatkan agar memastikan kualiti udara dalaman adalah selamat untuk seluruh ahli keluarga.

Antara yang boleh dibuat ialah dengan memastikan cadar, sarung kusyen dibasuh menggunakan air panas pada suhu sekurang-kurangnya 60 darjah celsius seminggu sekali untuk mematikan hama.

Disarankan juga agar menggunakan penyedut hampagas untuk membersihkan lantai rumah seminggu sekali dan jika mampu gunakan pendingin hawa dengan suhu bilik 24 darjah selsius untuk mengurangkan kelembapan dalaman.

Selain itu ibu bapa juga boleh memberikan bayi susu ibu kerana kajian telah membuktikan pemberian susu ibu kepada bayi mengurangkan risiko ekzema sebanyak 50 peratus.

Ibu bapa juga boleh menjadikan suplemen yang mengandungi probiotik dan prebiotik sebagai makanan tambahan untuk menguatkan sistem imunisasi. Adalah amat digalakkan untuk anda semua berhenti merokok," kata Dr. Amir Hamzah lagi.

South Korea's Coway to explore Malaysian market

posted Sep 12, 2015, 6:21 PM by Coway Malaysia

The Star, Thursday, 4 June 2015

SEOUL: South Korea's largest water and air-purifier maker Coway Co Ltd plans to expand to 15 new areas in Malaysia in the second half of this year. 

Executive Vice President for Overseas Business Unit Kim Yong Seong said the expansion plan is driven by the strong performance in Malaysia, where its unit Coway (M) Sdn Bhd recorded sales of RM268 million last year, up 22% over 2013.

Coway expands in Malaysia

New areas to be explored include Temerloh, Seri Manjung, Mersing, Kuching and Miri, he told Malaysian reporters at the launch of new products at its research and development centre here.

Kim said the company is optimistic of strengthening its business in Malaysia after reaping sales of over 10,000 units as of April 2015, and plans to make the country its Southeast Asia hub for centralised control.

For the whole year, the company expects sales of 90,000 units worth RM380 million over an investment of RM35 million.

Coway Malaysia, with a customer base of 210,000, operates 60 branches, 19 sales offices, 23 Cody (Coway Lady) branches and 18 Dream service centres, and targets RM800 million in revenue and 500,000 customers by 2020.

It is the best performing Coway overseas subsidiary, beating those in China, Thailand and the United States. 

Coway, which has two manufacturing plants -- in Yugu and Incheon in Korea -- is also focusing on customer retention, strengthening Cody branches' productivity, and launching six new products this year. 

It plans to develop new overseas subsidiaries through joint ventures or own investments in Indonesia and Vietnam.- Bernama

Malaysian business became Coway’s best overseas subsidiary

posted Jan 3, 2015, 4:03 PM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Sep 12, 2015, 6:29 PM ]

Coway (M) Sdn Bhd, the Malaysian arm of South Korean appliance company Coway Co, recently announced the appointment of its new managing director. After eight years at the helm, James Park Jae Young has passed the baton on to new managing director, Kyle Choi Ki-Ryong.

When he first set foot in Malaysia in November 2005, Park saw the growth prospects for the Coway brand of water purifiers in the local market. “Throughout 2005 to 2006, Malaysia’s economy was burgeoning. As the nation’s income grow, it was a right time for people to invest in products that enhance health,” he said of Coway’s establishment in the country.

During his tenure, Park successfully led the Malaysian business to become Coway’s best overseas subsidiary, recording the highest return on investment of 114% and a peak of 200,000 customers in Malaysia. “Coway Malaysia is an important achievement for my career,” said Park, the company’s first managing director.

At his official introduction, Choi stated that the company’s next step was to increase its presence in Malaysia. “We will be expanding our branches to the east coast states, and we plan to build our brand into every corner of the country,” he said. Choi revealed that the company was aiming for revenue of RM300mil this year, and was targetting an increase of 20% next year.

While stating he has large shoes to fill due to Park’s accomplishments, Choi is confident that the target will be achieved. Since its inception in 2006, Coway Malaysia has consistently seen 20% improvements in revenue every year.

Choi is not a stranger to the Malaysian arm of Coway, as he previously held the role of chief financial officer in 2006 and was responsible for helping to localise the business here. Prior to returning, Choi managed the South Korean company’s US operations as the managing director. In addition to expansion plans, Choi said the company will launch a new home sanitation service in coming months. “We expect to bring in more home appliances, with about five or six new product models alone,” he said.

To accommodate the developing business, Choi also said heavy recruitment is expected next year, especially in its Coway Lady (Cody) workforce, the company’s team of female service experts. In line with its CSR efforts, Coway Malaysia constantly offers job vacancies and career advancement opportunities to single mothers and housewives. “We have 750 Coway Ladies now and we are looking to increase up to 1,000, or more depending onthe growth of our business,” explained Choi.

Bacteria in your drinking water

posted Aug 18, 2014, 6:57 PM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Aug 18, 2014, 7:15 PM ]

PETALING JAYA: The water you buy from vending machines may not be as clean as you think.

Twenty-nine samples of water were drawn from such machines throughout the Klang Valley – and almost all were contaminated.

There were harmful E. coli, Coliform and Clostridium perfringens microbes – the same kind of bacteria found in untreated sewage.

Coliform and Clostridium perfringens are also the same bacteria found in human and animal faeces.

These bacteria can cause cramps, diarrhoea and other gastrointestinal problems.

The Star conducted the tests together with Forum Air Malaysia, an organisation formed to assist the National Water Services Commission.

Forum Air Malaysia tested 14 samples in April while The Star screen 15.

The samples were from vending machines here and in Subang Jaya, Cheras, Klang and Kuala Lumpur.

Under Malaysia’s Safe Drinking Water Act, there should not be any trace of Coliform or E. coli in drinking water.

Forum Air research and policy executive Jesslyn Pek said it was worrying that many of the samples did not have traces of free chlorine or fluoride, which are chemicals needed to kill bacteria in water.

“From the tests on the 14 water samples, six were found to have either Coliform or E. coli – and did not contain any free chlorine or chloride,” she said.

“Free chlorine must be present, because it is a disinfectant,” Pek said.

“There are standards to determine how much free chlorine is needed to be used to treat water, but as it cannot be detected at all in these samples, it shows that an insufficient amount was used.”

In the tests conducted by The Star with an accredited lab, all 15 samples tested positive for Coliform and Clostridium perfringens.

Water vending machines are found in office and residential buildings and universities or colleges.

People prefer to buy this water as it costs only about 20 sen a litre compared to bottled water, which can cost more than RM2 for the same amount.

According to an industry source, the Health Ministry began a nationwide effort to license owners of water vending machines last year.

However, to date, many have not responded.

To obtain the licence, operators need to fork out RM450 per machine and send water from the machines for quality tests at the Department of Chemistry.

They also have to pay a licence processing fee of RM130.

A two-year licence costs RM150.

Regulation 360 (c) (for “vended water”) was added to the Food Regulations 1985 in August 2012 to regulate water vending machines.

The ministry has requested for full water test results after being alerted by The Star.

Experts: Filtration system must be serviced regularly

posted Aug 18, 2014, 6:52 PM by Coway Malaysia   [ updated Aug 18, 2014, 6:54 PM ]

PETALING JAYA: The filtration system in water vending machines can become breeding grounds for bacteria if not serviced regularly, say experts.

Malaysian Association of Standards Users CEO Ratna Devi Nadarajan said the purpose of the system is to filter out bacteria, but if it is not maintained or serviced regularly, it can breed bacteria.

Besides the filter, she said the exposed nozzle could also collect bacteria if not maintained or cleaned.

“The fact that faecal Coliform has been found in water shows that it is already very bad.

Ratna, however, said Coliform could be easily treated with chlorine.“We cannot compromise on this. Such bacteria should not be there at all,” she said.

She said the presence of free chlorine in water was an indication that the disinfectant was still working.

“But in many of the water samples, there were no traces of free chlorine, which meant that the treatment of water was not done properly.”

Ratna said the presence of Coliform in drinking water could cause diarrhoea or other stomach problems, especially in children and those with existing health problems.

Forum Air Malaysia research and policy executive Jesslyn Pek said the Clostridium perfringens bacteria that was found in water samples tested was not hazardous in water but could cause food poisoning.

“It usually causes stomach problems for about a day and people may not know that is due to the water.

“Food poisoning can result if this water is used for cooking,” she said.

Pek said the condition of many of the water vending machines was also found not to be in accordance with Part 5 (55) of the Food Hygiene Regulation 2009.

“According to the rules, the machines must be ‘equipped with self-closing, tight-fitting doors on the dispense compartment when the water vending machine is not in use’.

“Some machines had doors which could not shut on their own while others did not even have doors,” she said.

Pek urged the Health Ministry to take immediate action by screening the operators of the vending machines.

Minum air buah ketika sahur untuk kekal cergas

posted Jul 1, 2014, 3:04 PM by Coway Malaysia

MINUM air buah semasa bersahur adalah antara tindakan yang baik dalam memastikan umat Islam sentiasa bertenaga dan sihat sepanjang hari pada  bulan Ramadan ini, menurut pakar dietetik.

Ketua Jabatan Dietetik dan Sajian Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), Ridzoni Sulaiman berkata dengan meminum air buah-buahan segar, ia dapat mencegah tubuh daripada mengalami dehidrasi pada bulan puasa ini.

Air buah-buahan ini mengandungi pelbagai jenis nutrien seperti vitamin, potasium dan glukosa, dan berperanan sebagai bekalan tenaga di dalam badan, katanya kepada Bernama baru-baru ini.

"Sebenarnya rasa letih, penat dan mengantuk bukannya disebabkan kekurangan makanan tetapi ia adalah disebabkan kuantiti air di dalam badan berada pada tahap rendah.

"Bila berlakunya dehidrasi, tubuh kita kehilangan air serta garam galian seperti sodium, potasium, kalsium, fosfat dan  sebagainya, sebab itu air memainkan peranan penting di dalam tubuh kita," tambahnya.

Memandangkan bulan Ramadan kali ini jatuh pada musim Monsun Barat Daya dengan cuaca yang panas dan kering, serta diburuk dengan jerebu yang tidak menentu dan ramalan fenomena El Nino akan melanda Malaysia pada pertengahan tahun ini, maka adalah perlu bagi umat Islam memastikan bekalan air dalam badan sentiasa dijaga.

Ridzoni berkata selain meminum air buah-buahan, orang ramai perlu mengelak daripada meminum kopi ataupun teh pada bulan puasa kerana minuman itu mempunyai kesan deuratik.

Minuman tersebut akan merangsang pengeluaran air kencing, dan akibatnya, badan akan mengalami dehidrasi dan tekak menjadi sangat haus, katanya.

Sementara itu, Pegawai Dietetik Pusat Pengajian Sains Kesihatan Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Mohd Hairil Nizam Abdul Hamid turut bersependapat pengambilan air yang mencukupi amat penting dalam menghadapi musim panas ketika berpuasa.

Katanya, kekurangan air ini boleh menyebabkan tubuh menghadapi masalah kerana 70 peratus daripada komposisi tubuh terdiri daripada air.

"Tubuh badan memerlukan sekurang-kurangnya lapan gelas air sehari bagi memastikan sel-sel tubuh dapat berfungsi dengan baik.

"Apabila tubuh mengalami dehidrasi masalah utama adalah buah pinggang kerana bila tubuh kekurangan air, buah pinggang akan kecut yang boleh menyebabkan kerosakan buah pinggang, malah antara perkara lain yang boleh berlaku adalah pening dan pitam," katanya.

Tambah beliau, walaupun pengambilan air yang mencukupi dititikberatkan namun orang ramai turut dinasihat memakan makanan seimbang.


Ramadhan Tips: Drinking Fruit Juices During Sahur Can Conserve Energy, Say Dietitians

posted Jun 27, 2014, 9:40 PM by Coway Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Drinking fruit juice during the sahur meal will ensure that Muslims are energized and remain healthy throughout the day during the fasting month of Ramadan, according to dietitians.

Head of Department of Dietetics and Catering Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), Ridzoni Sulaiman, said drinking fresh fruit juice could prevent the body from becoming dehydrated when fasting.

Fruit juice contains a variety of nutrients such as vitamins, potassium and glucose, and serves as a significant source of energy for the body, he told Bernama recently.

"Actually, the feeling of exhaustion, tiredness and sleepiness is due to lack of water in the body rather than lack of food. When dehydration occurs, our body loses water and minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphate and so on, thus water plays an important role in our body," he added.

Considering that this time Ramadan has fallen during the Southwest Monsoon season with hot and dry spells, along with the haze and the forecast that El Nino will occur in the middle of the year, it is necessary to ensure the supply of water in the body is constantly maintained.

Ridzoni said people should also avoid drinking coffee or tea during the fasting month because the drinks have a deuretic effect.

Meanwhile, School of Health Sciences Campus Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Dietetics Officer, Mohd Hairil Nizam Abdul Hamid, agreed that adequate water intake was very important during the hot spell when fasting.

Seventy per cent of the body's composition is made up of water, it is a major constituent of our bodies and vital organs and lack of water can cause health problems.

"The body needs at least eight glasses of water a day to keep the body's cells functioning properly. Lack of water can cause kidney problems, fainting and dizzy spells," he said.

He also advised people to eat a balanced diet.
