Pentamaster Corp Bhd, Vitrox Corp Bhd, Globetronics Technology Bhd, and Mini-Circuits Technology (M) Sdn Bhd are some companies with niche products such as glove recycling machines, advanced vision inspection system and equipment, high brightness LED modules, and a new range of radio frequency components for the 4G networking infrastructure.
