2) Combustion. We are highly sough after for our expertise in this region that stretch as far to Africa and to Australia. Our expertise is well known among the industries and with a compatible price, we have 20 percent of the market in the edible oil industries. Our costumer profile such as Wilmar International, Alfa Laval, Desmet Ballestra, Sungai Budi Group, Sinarmas Group, Angel Cosmetic and many more. Creating our own boiler combustion controller will be first in this region as mostly all controller are imported from Germany or Italy.
3) Conveyor system. Tubular drag conveyor is widely known in food industries and also in America and Europe. However after market research, it is relatively a new market in this region. Instead of being an agent of a Company for American or European company, GACS decided to go against all odds and to design our very own conveyor. Spend nearly rm300,000 on the Research and Development, we are proud to be the the first tubular conveyor company in this region. Since it is a new system in this region, the market has high potential which is 90 percent market availability.
|Revenue / Business Model||We have currently move to a light industry area in Penang to able to set up assembly line and production line. Our plans are to used the invested money to built up a unit in the office. We will installed video cameras around the sample unit of the conveyor and share it to our website. With this idea, potential costumer can easily log in to our system and view the conveyor running in 24 hours with various type of material to convey. With such implementation, we are targeting to expand the market to Australia, New Zealand, Africa and even to penentrate South America.
