MARA Aerospace and Technologies Sdn. Bhd
MARA Aerospace and Technologies Sdn. Bhd., a wholly owned subsidiary of MARA, is the master planner and implementer of the Asia Aerospace City (AAC) vision. It acts in line with the strategies of the National Aerospace Industry Coordination Agency (NAICA), focusing on increasing the number of value jobs by catalysing the development of the aerospace supply chain.
AAC is building a strong aerospace supply chain framework in the years to come to serve the requirements of enhanced manufacturing abilities and speed for 1st Tier organisations, under direct supervision from the OEMs.
Partnerships are established on all levels of businesses – from engineering design to structural manufacturing to development of human capital. These are then coupled with Malaysia's unique offering of industry-ready talent, excellent engineering education, cost-efficient labour, land availability, government-backed tax incentives and financial and administrative support.
Under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) of Malaysian Government, AAC drives the development of a supply value chain framework to support the OEMs and the Tier-1 aerospace organisations for activities including:
- parts and component manufacturing
- materials processing (including machining, non-destructive testing (NDT) and surface treatment)
- jigs and tooling capabilities
- in-service cabin / panel conversion or modification or refurbishment (for both commercial and business/corporate jets)
- P2F conversions
