Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 – Driving Myanmar’s Manufacturing Scene with International Technologies

Yangon, 18 September 2014 – Investment in technology to lift manufacturing standards is critical in keeping Myanmar competitive in the international arena. The inaugural edition of Manufacturing Myanmar will deliver a presentation of manufacturing solutions from well-known international brand names to the manufacturing community in Myanmar, providing a valuable platform for the sourcing of the necessary automation needed to boost capabilities, and increase output of Myanmar’s manufacturing industry.

Held at the Myanmar Convention Centre in Yangon, from 2 – 4 October, more than 85 exhibitors from 16 countries/regions will showcase a wide selection of new to Myanmar manufacturing solutions that are best suited to help increase productivity and open up new avenues of business for the budding manufacturing sector. Technologies on showcase will include metalcutting and metalforming machines, test and measurement equipment, tooling systems, and supporting equipment such as air compressors, welding equipment and labelling systems. Notable brand names that will feature at the event are Brother, Masima, Carl Zeiss, GF Machining Solutions, Guehring, Haimer, Nikon, Olympus, TRUMPF, Tungaloy, Wenzel, and YG-1 among many others.

“Manufacturing Myanmar is a great opportunity for manufacturers in Myanmar to learn more about technology and tools available to them in the international market. The emergence of the local manufacturing industry is critical to Myanmar’s economy, and local businesses need to step up in order for the sector to realise its full potential. The adoption of technology to automate production processes is undoubtedly a step in the right direction,” says Mr. U Aye Tun, Vice President of Myanmar Industries Association.

“Myanmar is a very favourable location for international manufacturing services, and I am glad there is a show like Manufacturing Myanmar to set an international benchmark and provide valuable exposure to the machinery needed to help level-up capabilities of local manufacturers and make Myanmar an attractive location for international companies to set up production operations,” he adds.

Mr. William Lim, Project Director for Machinery Events, from organiser Singapore Exhibition Services says, “Over 90 per cent of our exhibitors are from overseas, and they are very thrilled to present their products to the manufacturing community in Myanmar. This will be the first time many of them have ventured into Myanmar, and are certainly looking forward to sharing their knowledge and introducing the right kind of tools and machines that will add value to the operations of local manufacturers.”

Showcasing their series of CNC Lathe Machines, Mr. Kevin Chua, Managing Director of Asia Masima, says, “With the expansion of industries in Myanmar, we foresee many opportunities where we can introduce the right solutions to the local industry. Minimal investment is required to integrate our machines with current operations, and with our suite of innovative solutions and on-site application support, we will be able to provide value added services to companies in Myanmar. Manufacturing Myanmar 2014 is an ideal opportunity to position Asia Masima for the coming year ahead.”

Similarly, Benign Enterprise, a worldwide supplier of machine tools and manufacturing equipment such as lathes, milling machines, drilling machines, grinders, bandsaws, woodworking equipment, and machine tool accessories among others, is looking forward to introducing their solutions to the Myanmar market. The company’s General Manager, Mr. David Wu says, “Myanmar is a developing country that has great potential to further grow its manufacturing sector. Our machines can be applied across a wide range of manufacturing processes, and can be used to make all kinds of products. Our machines are not only high in quality and efficient, but also very cost competitive. This makes it easy for manufacturers in Myanmar to integrate our machines to increase efficiency of their current operations and improve quality of their products.”
