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

This EPP targets to draw multinational corporations to set up their transmission and distribution manufacturing operations in Malaysia, in order to capture the market for complex high-voltage transmission and distribution equipment.


  • Toshiba Transmission & Distribution Systems Asia Sdn Bhd, an EPP company, has grown its business operation in transmission and distribution equipment manufacturing and turnkey engineering services. In 2014 it employed 340 workers, from 150 three years earlier, and serves international markets including the Middle East, Australia, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore and Indonesia.
  • A local company is pursuing collaboration with an internationally accredited short circuit testing liaison firm to establish a centre for testing and accreditation of high-power voltage equipment. The centre is still pending approval.
