With a little amount of capital and the use of salary as a research assistant job, they develop a company that based on technology development. With experience in the field of mechatronics and robotics when participate and represent ROBOCON UTM in the national competition for 3 years during the study, this gives some confidence in us to start a company based on technology.

Product / Service Description:

MInD help you to create, design and develop any product regarding technology that involve software development(PC and mobile), electronic, mechanical, control system, embedded system and robotics from idea phase to the prototype version or end product. Instead of that we also do some R&D to develop our own range of products. Our previous clients mostly from research grant holder from UTM lecturer and various faculty (chemical, electrical, mechanical and biomedical engineering).

With enough additional funding, we are able to target larger areas such as manufacturing of machines and plant systems in the industry whether small, medium (SME/IKS) and large scale.

We also plan to create space that can provide students, engineers, makers, developers, hacker, freelancer in technology use the equipment, facilities such as 3D printers, CNC machine, laser cutting, milling & latching machine, electronic making tools & analysis and so on to develop their product and do their works by becoming our members with monthly fees. This space will be call as Automation & Robotic Studio (AR Studio). Besides they can use the facilities and tools, we also use the same thing to do our main services that been state above. Equipment will be provided free of charge to be use by the registered members, but for some raw materials (ABS filament, aluminum, iron,electronic components) must be paid by the consumer to us at a reasonable price. Members will be given exposure before using the equipment provided. Assistance from our technicians and employees will be given for the use of heavy equipment (for those with no experience).

From this service, we can identify the projects carried out by members here that have the potential to be developed and commercial through assistance and negotiations between us and members.

With complete facilities and equipment available, we are able to provide services such as seminars and workshops to educate and expose the relevant knowledge of mechanical, electronics, programming (programming) and even robotics. 1 of the advantage of this concept are registered members with experience can also help by become an facilitator/instructor for seminars and workshops.

Information Memorandum:

Coolup Greentech Sdn Bhd was incorporated in April 2012 to commercialise the manufacturing of high quality biomass wood pellets from wood wastes. Our company has been certified as a Green Technology company, under the Green Technology Funding Scheme (GTFS) government’s incentive on 23rd July 2012, in which Coolup Greentech Sdn Bhd received RM 4,512,600 guarantee coverage from Credit Guarantee Corporation (CGC).

Our main product is biomass wood pellets made from wood wastes with proposed manufacturing site in Songsang Industrial Area, Temerloh, Pahang. Our pellets are produced from wood wastes such as sawdust, wood shavings, offcuts etc. that are mainly by-products from wood working industries. Our pellets are produced naturally in 6 mm diameter using the latest technology with a production system that guarantees high yield and low energy consumption, without the usage of binding agents and industrial chemicals. Our product meets Germany’s DIN 51731 standard which highly suitable for the usage in Industrial Biomass Boilers, Gasification, Combined Heat & Power (CHP) and even Household & District Heating.

We wish to establish our manufacturing plant and operation in Temerloh, Pahang. This is due to its abundant resources of raw materials such as timber sawdust, hardwood and medium offcuts as 50% of all logging activity is Pahang is based in Temerloh, Mentakab, Jerantut and Maran, with close to 50 sawmills and wood working industry. Being a town in the centre of Pahang, it provides direct access to the Port Klang and Kuantan Container Port. The ample land in the Jeli area permits us for expansion plans to cater for growing demands. With the full support from the Government of Pahang, directly from the Chief Minister himself, we are also planning to establish a Acacia energy plantation for our raw material needs in the future. Our production capacity shall reach 2,000 tons per month in the first 5 years, with plans for expansion up to 10 ton / hour, which can produce 4,000 – 5,000 tons of wood pellets per month.

Biomass wood pellets has a large growing market, in which Europe imported 1.8 million tons of wood pellets in 2010, as the local European production can only cater for 41% of local demand, with trade value of US$250 million. The demand for wood pellets in Europe is predicted to reach 50 million tons by 2020, with local price commanding up to €300 per ton. After the South Korean government signed the Green Energy Bill 2012, wood pellet trade in 2011 was 400,000 tons, in which 76% has to be imported and by 2020, wood pellet demand is South Korea are predicted to reach 5 million tons. Japan, Australia and New Zealand also a strong and growing wood pellet market.

To take opportunity of such prospect, we wish to establish a full turnkey 4 ton / hour Wood Pellet production plant with the capability to produce 2,000 tons of wood pellets per month. That is why we wish to seek an investment worth RM 7,498,721 (US$ 2,499,574) for this project from your esteemed company for the purchasing of production line, equipments, manufacturing site, working capital and operation purposes. With a potential net profit (pre-tax) of 58.07 % per month and Rate of Return (ROI) of 109.07 % within the period of 48 months from investment cost, we believe there is a bright future for this industry with high revenue potential.

Other wood-products such as shoe rack, bookcases, etc.

Market Size

According to FAO, the production of fibreboard in Malaysia is expected to grow from 1.5 million m3 in 2005 to 2.0 million m3 in 2010. Malaysian consumption of the fibreboard recorded 290,000 m3 in 2005 to a projected estimate of 417,000 m3 in 2010. The export of fibreboard from Malaysia is anticipated to be 1.583 million m3 in 2010, with zero import of fibreboard since 1995. Global Production of fibreboard, therefore, is expected to increase from 60.9 million cubic metres in 2009 to 76 million cubic metres in 2013, based on current expansion plans and estimated capacity utilisation rates. By 2013, North Asia will be producing 45 per cent of the worlds MDF, and China alone will be producing 41 per cent. Global wood panel consumption will exceed 282 million m3 by 2010, according to a new report by Global Industry Analysts Inc (GIA).

Market Growth

Fibreboard is the fastest-growing product segment with consumption poised to grow at a compounded annual rate of 9.46% over the period 2001-2010. BIS Shrapnel is forecasting consumption of fibreboard to grow at an average rate of about five per cent per year over the five year period 2009 to 2013. This rate of growth is approximately the same as the forecasts for production and should result in a reasonably balanced global market.

Target Market

The target markets are Malaysia, and the Asia Pacific region particularly the China region and Indian subcontinent region, Japan and Korea that demands higher share of quality fibreboard consumption due to its robust industrial growth domestically. With rapid development of real estate sector in recent five years, China’s furniture and flooring manufacturing both have increased at double-digit growth rate, leaving vast space for high speed development of fibreboard in China. As of 2009, fibreboard consumption recorded 38.48 million cubic metres, up 8.7% year-on-year basis.

Price Competitiveness

Attributing to its low costing for its agricultural waste materials being the major raw material feedstock, there are ample room for strategic pricing strategy at different market levels. The product is environmental friendly and an excellent cost efficient substitute for plywood, and in general at a discount of 35% to plywood prices, and a discount of 10% to traditional fibreboard prices

Industry Competitors

The fibreboard industry in Malaysia currently has 14 plants with a total annual installed capacity of 2.9 million. For 2008, the export of MDF totalled at RM1.2 billion. With excellent technical properties of the project’s reinforced engineered fibreboard, it will be a much cheaper option, and yet an excellent substitute for the traditional formaldehyde-glued fibreboard, and hence there is no direct competition per se.

Entry Barrier

The entry level is considerably higher as the wood being the primary feedstock for fibreboard manufacturing is a scarce resource, and mostly involves expensive and huge investment.

Niche Market

The company is synergized to address a niche requirement in the wood panel industry to offer an alternative supply of reinforced engineered fibreboard with excellent properties that the traditional fibreboard suppliers unable to satisfy

Financial Projection

Return of Investment (ROI) = 753%
IRR = 83%

Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

Amount Invested : RM 230,000

Amount Required : 2-3 Million

Knowledge / Experience Required:

Proposed Investor’s Role: part-time; as mentor; as consultant

Industry: Green

Project Stage: seed, start-up

More Information:

Our inspiration to do Vertical Axis Wind Turbine(VAWT) came from lack of electricity in my village BARIO, Sarawak. It is a good investment as government has been spending loads of money to supply diesel subsidy to rural school generator till now which sometime failed to arrive to desinated location. There is 700 rural school in Sarawak and number will be growing.(not forgetting rural village, army post, clinic, resident office, etc.) Meaning to say consumption of diesel will continue to increase. We wish to reduce government burden by suggesting to them to use our VAWT. In long term, it will not only save their money, but the amount saved could be channel to school infrastructure or books. We have confident in our product as we hand made, researched and surveyed ourselves. We even have potential customer from standalone temple, Sabah\’s island, rural swiftlet and latest, we managed to contact Cambodia and Brunei interested party. We actually complete 5 rnd in 2 month before the final prototype. Currently awaits Ministry of Science Technology Innovation approval of first project grant. However, the grant do not cover transport, salary, rental etc. Only cost of raw material. We hope to have a long term solution for our energy shortage in the future lets say if we install the VAWT on highway(north south), seaside(can buffer strong freak wind), palm plantation, roof top(for singapore HDB). Europe is already having electric car. PROTON is expecting to came out with their first electric car in 2013. Are we(Malaysia) fully prepared yet? We are confident of our product as we studied the efficiency during our trial and error process. Our world is getting sicker every second. We tend to forget that we are at the world mercy. Green Energy is the future.

Thermal Imaging

Business Overview

The company is a sole-proprietorship formed in 2010 and located in Malaysia. Its’ primary focus is the design and manufacture of thermal imaging based platforms for thermal industries. The company aims to capitalize on the growing demand for advanced technology hardware and software within the Original End Manufacturer (OEM) thermal imaging industry.

The thermal imaging platforms designed are used in the manufacture of thermal imaging cameras. The platform acts as the main core of the camera. The company has developed a base platform design that has been designed for the thermal imaging industry.

Unique Features of TME’s Base Platform

TME’s base platform is small in size and has the flexibility to integrate into many existing systems. It also does not require the usual restrictive end user licensing (the end user has to apply independently for licensing from the US government) as practiced by other thermal imaging platforms. Its one-platform-system also carves a unique niche for merging into all other applications within the myriad electronic world. Thus, there is a great potential for lucrative commercial exploration into ancillary markets.

Target Market

The base platform is designed for the Thermal Imaging Industry. TME will target their product towards the two major segments of this industry, which are:

a) Commercial Vision Systems e.g. Surveillance, Security, Fire Fighting
b) Government Systems e.g. Ground Based, Airborne

Product Positioning

Generally the base platform will be positioned as among the advanced Thermal Imaging Platforms in the market. TME has also identified the needs associated with each segment of the market and will position its base platform with a competitive edge in each segment:

a) Commercial vision Systems:- Emphasis will be placed on its smaller size and flexibility
b) Government Systems :- Emphasis will be placed more on its quality as a one platform system and its non-requirement of end-user licensing

Marketing strategy highlights

TME aims to better position itself within the thermal market by capitalizing on its non-requirement of end-user licensing. This will enable TME to venture into the previously restricted thermal imaging markets of Asia and Middle East and penetrate these lucrative market leaders there.

Production strategy highlights

TME aims to better position itself within the thermal market by capitalizing on the high quality of fabrication and assembly by outsourcing the production of the key components. TME would proceed to do the final assembly of the key components and testing within its own premises. This would enable production ability to increase to suit the market demands without a high capital outlay.

Organizational and Management strategy highlights

Over the next period, TME will employ 2 full time engineers and office support staff. The company will concentrate on developing overall policies and procedures in all areas. A training needs analysis will be conducted.

Financial Requirement

TME is requesting seed funding of RM1 mil to move its design from a laboratory prototype to production prototype and establish a production run.

Market Analysis Summary

The moving picture industry is multi billion dollar industry world wide and is still growing fast each year. Also new businesses have arisen and will continue to expand like; Pod casts, online commercials and mobile content.

Marketing Strategy

In the first three month of operation company will produce an impressive show reel, which will show off all of our services in a high definition presentation. We will then promote our services thru internet platforms world wide (cuesheet.com, mandy.com, musicsupervisor.com and others) to smaller content production companies which are very keen to have a high standard service like ours, for a reasonable price. Once we have built up a good reputation with those companies, we will be able to target higher profile clients thru promoting our services to them and engaging overseas agencies which already handle day to day business for those companies.

Sales Forecast

We calculated in the cost that we will sell 1 min. of sound production for RM 2500. – (this is less then half the price international companies charge for low cost productions),

Posta Audio Postproduction in Europe charges for a low budget Animated 90 min. feature Film 110,000. – Euro.

In the first year we assume we can do about 60min of sound production. In the second year about 200 min. and in the third year we will reach our peak capacity of 480min of sound production. To assure a further growth of our business we will have to invest in an additional studio room, as well as to find another composer / producer within the 4th year of operation. From then on we will be able to handle about 960 minute of sound production which will create a minimum income per year of RM 2, 4 Million. If business continues to grow we should consider in the future investing in more studios.

Break even Analysis

A Risk Management Assessment has also been calculated into profit forecast figures.
The special design of our business is based around low variable overheads and costs, all other variable costs are under expenses.

Long term plan
The long term plan is to build a strong relationship with high profile clients. If we can succeed with this we can raise the price of our service dramatically as well as adding more and more studios to our assets. There are big studios overseas that operate 5 or more studios at the time. This is what we should strive for in the future of this business.

Conclusion

The proposed Production Company will be a great opportunity for us and a potential investor. The investment is relatively low compare with the potential profit we could achieve with a low profile set up. Now is the time to start a business like this because communication across borders is easier as ever before.

Description of Product and Services

Our core product is a Scantech brand X-Ray Gauging System which originates from France. This system is reputed to be one of the best for products of this type. This gauging system is widely used worldwide but its presence was relatively unknown in the South East Asia region due to the absence of a distributor for this region. Our company has seized the opportunity to obtain the sole distributorship of Scantech brand Gauging Systems for this region but was only given the sole rights of distribution for Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand by our principal generate satisfactory sales in these countries, we are confident that we can obtain the rights to the entire South East Asia region and possibly beyond these countries.

Business Opportunities

Nevertheless, the market potential for Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand is huge and can be considered the most important markets in this region for our products.

Apart from sales of the gauging systems, we are also offering service contracts to customers who already has an existing gauging system in their factory (regardless of brand) to maintain and service their systems. This is a very lucrative aspect of our business but this would require more manpower in times to come.

We had initially projected a sales volume of about ten units a year which would translate into revenue of about USD 1 million per annum. However, due to the worldwide economic downturn, we have reduced this projection to about five units per annum for the years 2009 and 2010 which is about USD 500,000 in revenue for each of the two years.

We believe that if we could weather the storm of the global economic downturn, our business would flourish when the economy heals. This is due to the increase in global demand for plastics, paper etc which would translate to more lines being opened in factories and increased demand for our gauging systems.

Business Strategy

Scantech Solutions will utilise the existing talent pool and in addition to this, we will invest in hiring experienced and top notched sales and technical personnel.

To create product knowledge to potential customers in related industries, we plan to participate in as many major trade related exhibitions throughout South East Asia. A demo gauging system unit is essential to us in order to demonstrate the capabilities of Scantech’s products to potential customers.

We would also conduct seminars to introduce, promote and create awareness in Scantech’s gauging Business Opportunitiessystems which are relatively unknown in this region. The main objective of these seminars is to introduce customers to the theory of gauging systems and X-Rays. By this, we will achieve both the objective of promoting the product and providing an in depth knowledge of gauging systems to potential customers and hence as the saying goes, killing two birds with one stone. The other essential strategy that we could work towards with customers is by installing a demo unit in their production line with their consent for a time span of averagely a month or two. With this, they would be able appreciate the system’s capabilities and after the trial period, they would be more inclined to purchase the system because they would be comfortable with the system. We foresee that this strategy might be able to have a success rate of 80% in persuading the customer to purchase the system. As a value added service, we are working towards offering the gauging system together with an insurance package that would extend to cover the system against normal perils such as fire, theft etc. However, we would arrange for the insurance to extend to cover other risks such as breakdowns.

Due to the current unfavourable economic climate, many companies are cash strapped or preserving liquidity and may not be willing to invest on a relatively high costing asset in one lump sum. We are addressing this problem by tying up with leasing companies which would not require the customer to invest in such a large initial outlay of cash if they should wish to purchase the system. However, not all companies would be agreeable to leasing or hire purchase as it involves high interest rates. As a last resort in order to close the sale, we may offer a shortened instalment plan, perhaps 50% down payments and the rest in four to five separate instalments. This would depend on Scantech’s terms to our company.

Sales Forecast

The company expects to have total first-year revenues of $1,087,000, growing to over $4,089,000 by year three. The bulk of these revenues will come from a combination of sales revenue, service; spare parts and consultancy .Revenues are expected to grow at a healthy clip, for two key reasons. First, as word of mouth spreads of our product and services. Second, as the economic situation improves over the next three years, customers will be investing in new lines, upgrades and demand for our product will soar as the foundation work in marketing has been done.
