“You can implement a small improvement on the automation system like data monitoring or inspection system from as low as $20,000. After government grant, you'll probably pay just a few thousand.”

Fong Li Fen, Director, Servoconnect Systems (Asia) Pte Ltd

“The grant application is actually quite fast. It really narrows down to what you have on hand. It really depends on what you want and what you can achieve to justify the grant from the government.”

Lim Kay Kheng, Sales & Marketing Director Chee Seng Oil Factory Pte Ltd

“Grants is definitely useful because automation in general is not cheap and SMEs do feel a lot of pain when they do this automation. A big part of consideration is the amount of money spent for this automation.”

Dr. Douglas Lam, Managing Director Kentaca Singapore Pte Ltd

“We actually started with smaller projects and then we slowly upgraded to higher level automation. Automation process has helped us to improve the productivity, consistency and quality requirements. We are also able to improve plant utilisation.”

Mr. SH Lim, General Manager Sanwa Plastic Industry Pte Ltd

“We have to be prepared for anything that comes our way. Those who keep themselves relevant and invest in new technology will not only survive but thrive in this rapidly-changing global environment.”

Dr. Ahmad Magad, JP
Secretary-General, Singapore Manufacturing Federation

“As a leader, you must be able to anticipate opportunities. More importantly, you must be able to react fast. This involves being adaptable to changes. Many times, it will involve difficult decisions such as changing your business or operating model."

Jeremy Fong, Chief Executive Officer
Joseph Wong, Project Manager
Fong’s Engineering & Manufacturing Pte Ltd

"First things first, identify your business bottlenecks. Only then can you research into the possible solutions and find out what are the risks involved. With this in place, you will be able to overcome your digitalisation problems."

Mr Toh Chin Lock, Founder of Common Alliance Engineering
