The focus is to first grow two established Malaysian Pure Play Engineering Services players to a critical mass by the year 2013. Strand Aerospace Malaysia (SAM) has been programmed to reach a critical mass of 350 engineers by 2013. The company has an established track record of delivering high value design and analysis engineering services to Aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Europe and America.

This was achieved using with Malaysian engineering resources developed via proprietary in-house training methods. These methods have also been successfully deployed to train graduates from government and private institutions.

The first phase will establish SAM as reference for other global OEM's and potential investors to initiate private investment in developing Pure Play Engineering Services solutions in Malaysia. It will also establish the Human Capital Development infrastructure that will provide the industry ready manpower needed to sustain this investment.

The second phase will therefore be driven by foreign direct investment capitalizing on the readily available Malaysian talent pool and growing reputation of the Malaysian Engineering Services Industry.

The engineering services industry is forecast to be worth USD1trillion by the year 2020. This EPP addresses the need for the country to be able to provide highly skilled and high paying jobs for Malaysians.
