KUALA LUMPUR: Seacera Group Bhd has tied up with South Korea’s KR EMS Co Ltd to look into the possibility of building a factory to produce light-emitting diode (LED) products in Malaysia.
In a statement, Seacera said both companies signed an MoU over the weekend to look into the venture, with technology provided by KR Global and under the supervision of KR Global. Seacera will also be handling the sales of such products.
Founded in 2007, KR Global is the global No. 1 electronic manufacturing system (EMS) specialist company. Some of its key clients are LG Electronics, Seoul Semicon, Lusen and Hee Sung.
Seacera group managing director Zulkarnin Ariffin said the company’s plan was to set up the production plant at its factory in Tangga Batu, Malacca.
He also said more people are switching to LEDs in order to open up creative possibilities and save energy.
LED systems are designed to be smart and efficient, and this suits well with the smart home technology that everyone is embracing.
All segments, government, enterprises and consumer will be faced with a choice of technologies in transitioning to more energy efficient lighting solutions. LEDs are more cost efficient over the total term.
“The promotion of LED products is also in line with the government’s commitment to reduce carbon intensity by about 40% by 2020,” Zulkarnin said.
