EPP 5.0 - Nurturing Pure-Play Engineering Services

This EPP aspires to create globally competitive aerospace and automotive engineering services companies by promoting market conditions that attract high-value engineering services to Malaysia. Through this EPP, local players Strand Aerospace Malaysia (SAM) and DreamEdge Sdn Bhd (DESB) were developed and have grown to become Tier 2 companies for design engineering, expanding their reach to Europe and Japan.


  • In 2014, DreamEDGE Sdn Bhd secured a defence engineering drawing project for a UK-based company and a turnkey project to design and deliver exterior parts for a special edition of a popular Japanese car.
  • Strand‘s position as the leading engineering design capability provider for aerospace in Malaysia was solidified in 2014, and it will function as the anchor company for the Asia Aerospace City and contribute to the local ecosystem, which is critical to attract international aerospace companies into Malaysia.
