Malaysia's engineering supporting industries, which include the moulds and dies, machining, metal stamping, casting, heat treatment and plating/surface engineering industries, have developed rapidly over the last three decades in tandem with the overall growth of the country's manufacturing sector particularly in boosting the robust growth of Machinery & Equipment industry.
To-date, Malaysia is recognised internationally for its capabilities and
quality production in diverse range of engineering activities. It has a good
network of engineering supporting industries capable of meeting the needs of
OEMs in supplying parts and components and the provision of precision
engineering services globally.
Over the past five years, outsourcing has matured as a trend, and Malaysia's engineering supporting industry is benefitting from this trend. Malaysia is a major outsourcing destination for MNCs in the semiconductor, automotive, machinery, oil & gas, aerospace, medical devices, and semiconductor industries.
Malaysian companies are encouraged to position themselves to become ‘One Stop Centres' providing total solutions to customers. These ‘One Stop Centres' would offer integrated services from product conception to serial production and manage the entire processes including procurement, logistics, packaging, testing and certification.
