The leadership at CG Global is extraordinary, led by a woman with over two decades of experience in contract electronic manufacturing. Supported by a technical team boasting more than 50 years of combined experience, CG Global also fosters employment opportunities for fresh graduates through comprehensive career development programs.
In a bid to nurture talent further, CG Global provides industrial training to students from various universities and polytechnics in Malaysia. Official collaborations have been formed with institutions such as the Electrical Engineering Department at Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Polytechnic, Jitra, Kedah, promising a brighter future for aspiring engineers.
The journey of CG Global began in 2016 when they were a subcontractor for a multinational company in Penang. Initially focused on consignment-based projects, they encountered the volatile nature of the subcontractor market. This compelled them to seek opportunities overseas. As their expertise grew, they started to specialise in PCBA and box-build assemblies, especially for high-mix and low-volume products.
CG Global secured their first international contract in the oil and gas industry supplying PCBA for electronic digital fuel meter products in the USA market. Subsequently, they entered the telecommunications industry in the UK, providing door entry and access control systems. Their reach extended to Australian, French, and Chinese markets across various industries.
However, to fully penetrate the international market, high technology, automation, and digitalisation became imperative. High capital investment was essential for establishing and sustaining a global presence. Initially, CG Global began with refurbished and secondhand machines, limiting their project acquisition potential. Yet, with the support of various government agencies, they successfully upgraded their manufacturing facilities with high-performing machines.
Government agencies, especially MIDA, assumed a significant role in CG Global’s international expansion. Since 2016, MIDA has provided invaluable support, from Manufacturing License to assistance in employment and import duty exemptions. Business matching sessions, facilitated by MIDA, further facilitated international partnerships.
Other government agencies, including MATRADE, SME Corp, MARA, and MPC, also extended their supports to CG Global. These agencies contributed to the company’s journey by aiding in penetrating new overseas markets, enhancing quality and process automation, providing business infrastructure, and improving productivity.
CG Global’s story is a testament to the remarkable accomplishments that local businesses can achieve with determination, collaboration, and unwavering support from important stakeholders.
