In 2013, RCMA expanded into the cotton business under Tong Teik Pte Ltd with an experienced team focusing primarily on African origination and sales to key Asian markets such as Vietnam and Bangladesh.
By 2016, the Cotton division was well placed for further expansion with the acquisition of the trading team of Plexus Cotton Limited. This addition provided a diversity of expertise that allows the RCMA Cotton division to position itself as a truly global cotton merchant supplying from every major origin and servicing all consumer markets.
