Globetronics Technology Bhd. is an integrated contract manufacturer of semiconductor-based products and services. It commenced operations in 1990 in a rented factory in Penang under the name of Globetronics Sdn. Bhd. with the two Malaysian founders as the only employees to service the Penang-based manufacturing operations of multinational corporations from throughout the world. Since then, the company has grown by 30% each year and today, it is listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange.
We are headquartered in Penang and have now expanded our operations beyond Malaysia to serve our customers. Our 10 subsidiary companies and one associate company in Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong and China, and a sales office in the United States, develop and provide higher value-added services, highly cost-competitive package/process platforms and e-Business solutions to our customers globally.
Our success can be attributed to the investment-friendly policies of our Government, the stable political climate, the outstanding infrastructure, and the dedicated and skilled workforce in Malaysia. The resounding success of the operations of multinational corporations in Malaysia in the last 30 years has produced a big population of highly trained and skilled technical workers. This will enable Malaysia to spin-off to higher value-added manufacturing and intellectual property-related developmental and business activities.
For existing investors looking for continuous expansions or first-time investors, Malaysia has become the centre of manufacturing excellence as well as a fertile ground for R&D activities.
