Mobility Werk Group Sdn Bhd (MW Group) with a business track record of over 50 years in the automotive industry today signed a collaboration agreement with EZ-Charge from the United Kingdom.
The strategic collaboration underscores the increasing push in Malaysia for next-generation mobility solutions and showcases MW Group’s commitment towards boosting Malaysia’s EV ecosystem. MW Group aims to become the pioneer in the manufacturing of EV parts, components and EV chargers.
The Group’s long-term plan includes focusing on localisation of EV manufacturing to help shape a supply chain ecosystem that is competitive on the international stage. It is also gearing up towards IR 4.0 with a set-up of a smart factory encompassing IoT, robotics, data analytics and automation by 2023 to continue to deliver automotive parts and components to its customers.
This will also serve the country’s objective of enhancing Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in building high skilled knowledge-based talents.
The signing ceremony was witnessed by Dato’ Sri Dr. Adham bin Baba, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) alongside Zulkifli Bin Kasim, Executive Chairman of Mobility Werk Group.
“Malaysia as with the rest of the world is heading towards the EV industry. This indicates that the Internal Combustion Engine stage or known as ‘ICE’ will end at some point. Therefore, MW Group has taken strategic and sustainable steps to work with technological partners globally.
MW Group has identified EZ-Charge, a company in the United Kingdom (UK) with more than 30 years of experience in Smart Electronic Solutions innovation and has credibility in the development of Renewable Energy as a technical partner in realising the development of EV in the automotive industry in Malaysia,” – Zulkifli Bin Kasim, Executive Chairman of Mobility Werk Group
