New opportunities for Malaysia’s innovators: Motorola’s new Penang R&D centre

AvantiKumar | Oct. 2, 2014
Currently, Motorola's largest R&D facility outside of the US, Penang-based Ïnnoplex also opens a new chapter in supporting the Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Plan, said Motorola's Bruce Brda.

The opening of the Innoplex will not only advance the company's technology and manufacturing capabilities, but will also support the government's goal of becoming an innovation-led, knowledge-based economy by 2020, said Dr Narayanan.

Officiating the recent launch, Y.B. Dato' Sri Mustapa Mohamed, minister of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, said:  "We applaud Motorola Solutions' involvement in supporting the Economic Transformation Programme and for contributing towards developing the local talent, especially in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The enhancement of human capital and contribution to the knowledge workforce in Malaysia has been a catalyst for growth and development of new technologies in communications, manufacturing and public safety."

Established in Malaysia in 1974, Motorola Solutions has been an active contributor to the country's Electrical and Electronics New Key Economic Area, a major component of the government's Economic Transformation Program. The company is also a founding member of the Collaborative Research in Engineering, Science and Technology (CREST) centre, which aims to accelerate the economic growth of the electrical and electronic sector in Malaysia.
