Industrial technologies for innovative business

 

Industrialising the nation

Fostering national competitiveness through leadership in plant and machinery technologies and solutions.

Malaysia's Machinery and Equipment (M&E) industry has been identified as a major factor in the country's transformation towards becoming a high-income nation. The development of the M&E industry will hinge upon the quality and capabilities of home-grown components and machines.

Local manufacturers require engineering support to give their plant and machinery technologies a competitive edge on the world stage. When Malaysian-made machinery inspires confidence globally, the country's reliance on expensive imports will decline and its industrial sectors will become much more competitive.

Mechanisation, automation, modern production technologies and innovative designs will be crucial factors in spearheading Malaysian industries as they move up the value chain. A wide range of engineering disciplines will be needed to upgrade our plants and machinery while ensuring that Malaysian companies achieve the highest international standards for safety, reliability and quality.
