EPP 13: Growing Automation Equipment Manufacturing

  • GNI by 2020 (mil)
  • Projected jobs by 2020

Malaysia currently houses ABB, the global leader in automation equipment, which assembles automation equipment but does not manufacture its core components in the country.

This EPP aims to leverage ABB’s presence to build new capabilities in the country through an automation equipment and manufacturing site.

Among targets for this EPP is to attract two more multinational automation equipment manufacturers in Malaysia by 2015.


  • NCIA worked with 12 companies to introduce locally-made automation products into AMD's workstream, exceeding the target of introducing three companies in 2014.
