Straits Times dated 10 Jan 2016: "Small firms take flight in aerospace industry".
Quote: Mr Leow, managing director of Fong Shen Mould and Precision Engineering. It was part of a consortium of firms which worked with A*Star's Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology to make armrests for SIA Engineering. Fong Shen plans to ramp up its involvement in aerospace, and is looking for more opportunities in countries like the United States.
Quote: Mr Lock, business director of of LNE Holdings. Taking on aerospace projects is a good diversification strategy for the company. Aerospace work contributed 3 per cent of the company's revenue last year, a share it hopes to raise to 15 per cent this year. The company has been working with SIMTech working on cocktail trays for business class seats, as well as economy class armrests. All its project involved plastic injection moulding.
Quote: Mr Yeo, executive director of Maxservo Technology. The company has spray coated plane cabin components as part of SIMTech's aerospace consortium. We managed to secure other aerospace clients in Malaysia and are looking at Thailand as well.

Replicating Success Story 3:
Royal Bussan Singapore Pte Ltd and Guoxin Manufacturing are local SMEs with different areas of expertise. Striking a partnership so that they can provide their clients with a wider range of products and services without having to stump up heavy costs of investment in machines or industrial space. They have their own target market and yet can act as one entity. By having leased adjacent factory spaces, the companies save transport costs and time, and customers can see the combined services offered all at the same place. This is one of the kind of collaboration and co-location to grow an integrated advanced manufacturing cluster our ACCM portal would like to replicate.
