Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 Opens Doors for International Firms to Enter Budding Market

Trade show to introduce new technology to boost productivity of local manufacturing sector


Singapore, 31 July 2014 – Myanmar’s first dedicated manufacturing trade exhibition will be held at the Myanmar Convention Centre (MCC) in Yangon, from 2 – 4 October 2014. Seen as the gateway for international firms to get acquainted with the budding local manufacturing sector, as well as the vast potential and opportunities it has to offer, Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 will feature a lineup of international companies from Austria, Germany, Italy, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and the UK.

Commenting on the show’s key role in bridging the gap between international companies and the emerging market, Mr. William Lim, Project Director for Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 from the show’s organiser, Singapore Exhibition Services says, “For majority of our exhibitors, Myanmar is unchartered territory. As the country develops their industries and continues their push to lure Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) to grow their manufacturing sector, this presents opportunities for international manufacturing solution providers to introduce the technology needed to increase productivity and drive development. Manufacturing Myanmar therefore provides an ideal business platform for international firms to get a better understanding of the current and future manufacturing equipment needs of the Myanmar manufacturing market, as well as for local industry players to source for new technologies relevant to their business.”

Three international group pavilions will be featured at the inaugural edition of Manufacturing Myanmar 2014. They include Singapore – presented by the Singapore Precision Engineering & Tooling Association (SPETA); Taiwan – presented by the Taiwan Machine Tool & Accessory Builders’ Association (TMBA) and Thailand – presented by the Hardware & DIY Club.

With participation of companies showcasing a range of technology from test and measurement equipment, hand tools, metal-forming and metal-cutting machines, and other supporting tools & equipment, the Singapore pavilion will feature a strong contingent of companies that include Agie Charmilles, Asia Masima, Cairnhill Metrology, Hong Chek, Optical Gaging, SI Engineering, Supreme Industrial Suppliers, Tungaloy, TRUMPF and Wenzel.

Mr. Koh Seng Chee, Executive Director of SPETA, coordinators of the Singapore pavilion says, “Our members are very keen to explore opportunities within Myanmar and Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 presents a good chance to do so. The pavilion will feature a wide range of machines and equipment that can be applied across various manufacturing industries. We hope to establish some meaningful connections and valuable business contacts within Myanmar.”

The manufacturing sector in Myanmar, consisting largely of labour-intensive production augurs well for companies such as Hong Chek – leading supplier for jewellery and industrial equipment. Their showcase includes:

• Finmark Fiber Laser - Its specifications along with high accuracy makes this laser engraver particularly suitable for all sorts of high precision applications. This affordable, yet easy to use compact unit is ideal for user-convenience and easy integration into the production processes.

Our Products would help the industry achieve high performance, accurate and reliable engraving system for all sorts of high precision applications.” Says, Mr Dennis Looi, Business Development Manager of Hong Chek / Finmark Laser.

Similarly, Chester Machine Tools, an exhibitor from the UK will be highlighting a range of basic machine tools including lathes and drilling machines. Commenting on their inaugural foray into the region, Mr. Bill Jewitt, Sales Director of Chester Machine Tools says, “We offer a large variety of conventional machine tools catering to a wide spectrum of industries which would be well suited to the current needs of the market in Myanmar.
