HOTAYI Electronic (M) Sdn Bhd will invest RM300mil into its expansion project – Hotayi BK2 – in Batu Kawan, Penang.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the new plant would be equipped with the ‘Smart, Green and Nature’ friendly concept.

“The project is expected to create 600 high-value jobs upon completion in April next year.

“It is riding on the fourth industrial revolution transformation and is in tandem with the Penang2030 vision.

“I’m pleased that Hotayi is flourishing here and is now one of the global leading electronic manufacturing services companies in Malaysia,” he said.

He noted that the Taiwan investor would celebrate its 30th anniversary next year.

Chow was speaking before taking part in the ground-breaking ceremony for the expansion project recently.

Following Taiwan’s new southbound policy to invest in South-East Asia, Hotayi made the bold decision in 2017 to expand its production capabilities in Penang and strengthen its strategic partnerships with clients in the region.

Chow said Hotayi also shared the vision of nurturing talent in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics).

“It has been supportive of projects that spur interest in STEM among the younger generation by donating to Tech Dome Penang,” he said.

Also present at the ground- breaking ceremony were Penang Assembly Speaker Datuk Law Choo Kiang, Bukit Tambun assemblyman Goh Choon Aik, Batu Kawan MP Kasthuriraani Patto, Seberang Prai City Council mayor Datuk Rozali Mohamud, Penang Island City Council mayor Datuk Yew Tung Seang, Hotayi Electronic(M) Sdn Bhd chairman Datuk Seri Lee Hung Lung and its managing director Goh Guek Eng.
