The production of ceramic sanitary ware began in 1952 at the JPC factory mainly for the Housing Trust of Malaya and the Singapore Improvement Trust. In 1965, Clay Industries Sdn. Bhd. (“CISB”) was set up to focus on manufacturing only sanitary ware products.

CISB sanitary ware has gained a definite market niche, being marketed under its own brands of ‘GLOBE’, ‘CLAYTAN’ and ‘LEGEND’ in Australia, Japan, Europe, the UK, USA and the ASEAN region. CISB also manufactures and supplies under OEM arrangement for renowned international sanitary ware manufacturers from Australia, Japan, United Kingdom and USA under their brands.

Recognizing the increasing importance of water conservation worldwide, CLAYTAN was the first in Malaysia to develop the Water Saver, an eco-friendly range of cisterns which requires only 4.5 litres of water per flush.

In 2007 Claytan became the pioneer in Malaysia and the first in ASEAN to produce fireclay product.
