SEPANG  –  The opening of the first Radom Intelligence Workshop in Malaysia launched at Sepang Aircraft Engineering (SAE) records its own history to Selangor, which is in line with the vision of ‘Smart Selangor 2025’.

Selangor Menteri Besar, Amirudin Shari said the workshop, which serves as a refurbishment radom on the nozzle, belongs to SAE – which is also a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airbus.

He said the smart workshop was made up of three inspection rooms, a siding room, two special paint spraying rooms, a clean room, and a drying room and overhaul of paint.

“I understand that the workshop’s efficiency level is also enhanced through the use of extensively smart digital technology that can utilize data obtained from fully airplane and maximum automation function,” said Amirudin.

“Interestingly, the opening of such workshops is in line with the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and part of the Selangor network to the smart state by 2025,” he added.

“In fact, it is also part of the 11th Malaysia Plan, with funding and grant support from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry,” he said.

He said this when met by the media after Launching Radom Smart Workshop Opening at Sepang Aircraft Engineering on 10 June.

Also present was EXCO Investment, Industry and Trade of Small and Medium Industries, Dato ‘Teng Chang Khim; Invest Investors Chief Executive Officer Dato ‘Hasan Azhari Idris and Sepang Aircraft Engineering Chief Executive Officer Raymond Lim.

At the same time, Amirudin said he was optimistic that such investments would continue in Selangor in the future.

“Thank you to Airbus who is still loyal to Sepang and Subang, please continue to invest this way in the future,” he said.

Airbus is Malaysia’s largest international partner for the aerospace sector with its supply and services business worth RM 1.67 billion annually to support local economic growth.
