A system which is common in the European and America market, Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd have successfully set up a system in Surabaya for Sungai Budi Group. Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd proudly claimed the first unit in South East Asia and it was design and built locally. The founder of Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd begin to recognized the potential of the tubular drag conveyor in other industries and begin to massive promote the system.

In the year 2016, Global Automation Combustion Solution had successfully sold 10 units of the conveyor system and begin to penetrate into other market. Beside by the conveyor system, Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd also expand its automation department. With a new system to remote monitoring all the process plants around the globe, Sungai Budi Group had agreed to purchase the system to monitor their process plant around Indonesia through VPN.

1) Tubular Drag conveyor- A conveyor system that exist in the market for over 50 years and we by so far are the only engineering house that produce it locally in Penang, Malaysia. We have sold 10 units since the introduction of the system in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Design locally and built locally to keep the cost competitive. Since the conveyor is new and full of advantages,we are targeting to enter food indutries, cement industries and other industries.

The system capture real time process plant around Indonesia and transmit the data back to Jakarta headquarters. Costumise by GACS engineers, we have succeed to run a system from surabaya to Jakarta in real time. With this system proven, we can now begin to expand it to other group such as WIlmar International, PT SInarmas, Musim Mas,whereby to monitor and report generation at headquarters to monitor all their process plant.

Revenue / Business Model For future planning, we are planning to fabricate the conveyor by in house. Currently the conveyor is fabricated by third party, so the cost is high and profit margin is reduced. By moving the fabrication to in house, we will save at least 20 percent of the costing which will increase our profit.
