Manufacturing Myanmar 2015 to Provide Singapore Manufacturing Companies with Access to Local Manufacturing Sector

A prevalent need for low-cost production has drawn global manufacturing players’ attention to Myanmar, as the country continues to open up to the world and advance its economic growth.

Already there is an influx of foreign direct investments pouring into Myanmar especially in the manufacturing sector, an outcome of having a strong low-cost workforce and strategic geographical location. These factors serve as strong incentives for Singapore manufacturing solutions companies with labour-intensive needs who wish to increase productivity at sustainable cost.

Staged by Singapore Exhibition Services, Asia’s leading trade exhibition and conference organiser, Manufacturing Myanmar is designed to serve an emerging country where capital goods continue to drive import growth, and there is healthy inflow of investment.

Manufacturing Myanmar will open doors to Singapore companies keen to expand their regional business footprint. These companies can leverage on the event to get acquainted with the budding local manufacturing sector, gain a better understanding of its current and future manufacturing equipment needs, as well as discover its vast growth opportunities.

The inaugural Manufacturing Myanmar 2014, which concluded in October 2014, has made its mark as the only dedicated manufacturing solutions trade event ever staged in the country, bringing technologies from well-known international brands as well as notable small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

Officiated by the Union Minister from Myanmar’s Ministry of Industry, the event was well-received with over 2,200 attendees, comprising local government officials, special guests, trade visitors and members of the press.

Nearly 30 companies from Singapore participated at the event, which also featured a Singapore Pavilion led by the Singapore Precision Engineering & Tooling Association (SPETA). The SPETA-led pavilion hosted a strong contingent of Singapore-based manufacturing players which included AEJ Innovation, Asia Masima, Cairnhill Metrology, Hong Chek, Optical Gaging, S I Engineering, Supremes Industrial Suppliers, Tungaloy, TRUMPF and Wenzel.

Manufacturing Myanmar served as an effective launch platform for these companies to promote viable technology that enables the local sector to automate operations. Collectively, their displays of machines, test and measurement equipment, cutting tools and automation systems can help local companies reach higher productivity, raise local standards of manufacturing, and last but not least, play a stronger role in the acceleration of Myanmar’s industrial transformation.

“Making an investment to automate operations with the use of machines and various supporting equipment is certainly a stride forward in unlocking Myanmar’s manufacturing potential. Creating a platform for the sharing of knowledge and best practices, and presenting business opportunities for the local industry, and providing Singapore companies a gateway into the country make up the essence of what Manufacturing Myanmar is all about,” says Ms. Lindy Wee, Chief Executive of organiser Singapore Exhibition Services.

“We are heartened by the local community’s positive response toward the event, and very honoured to play a part in the progression and prosperity of the country’s budding manufacturing industries,” she adds.

In addition to the positive reactions from local visitors towards their displays of machine equipment and technologies, Singapore exhibitors also got to meet with potential local agents and distributors. Through fruitful interactions, they were able to obtain acute insights into Myanmar’s manufacturing landscape and its current challenges, opportunities and demands.

On its participation at Manufacturing Myanmar 2014, Dr. Hans-Peter Laubscher, Managing Director-Asia Pacific, TRUMPF Pte Ltd comments, “TRUMPF joined Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 to create brand awareness and promote our technological capabilities in this new and upcoming market. We are also here to look for a business partner to work with in reaching out to the local manufacturing community. I am pleased with the quality of the visitors who came to Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 and we have received strong interest in our marking laser system TruMark 2130 as well as our laser cutting and punching technology. We will return again for the next edition of Manufacturing Myanmar.”

“We felt that the Myanmar market has plenty of business opportunities to explore and our participation at Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 yielded great results for us. We sold off our machine on the first day of the exhibition and also received many enquiries. The quality of visitors to the exhibition was very good and we will return for the next edition,” says Mr. Philip Seah, Managing Director of Assurich.
