PENANG: After months of trials and fine-tuning, Pentamaster Corp Bhd is ready to manufacture its computerised testing and measurement system in August.
Group executive chairman C.B. Chuah said the system could be used for testing electronic products such as integrated circuits, handphones, light emitting diodes and liquid crystal displays.
“We have already received orders for the system from a US multinational company based in Penang,” he told StarBiz, after briefing a delegation of 59 ministers from Asean and China on the group's operations at its plant in Bayan Lepas.
Also present at the briefing were Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik and Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon.
Chuah said Pentamaster was also almost ready to produce radio frequency identification (RFID) system for power supply companies in the region.
“Our RFID system, comprising tags and hand-held devices, allow power companies to read simultaneously power meters of several houses from 15 metres.
“The RFID system also enables power companies to track and monitor usage of electricity at houses to prevent power theft,” he said.
Chuah said Pentamaster had been selected by investPenang, the state government’s investment promotion entity, for the ministers' tour.
“For over 15 years, we have grown from a small firm to a medium-sized company with an annual revenue of US$30mil, and capable of global competition,” he said.
