EY Technology Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 Malaysia

Tan Ging Hoon
Managing Director, Alliancecorp Manufacturing.

We manufacture precision electromechanical and machined components for clients. It’s a very niche segment in the manufacturing process and cuts across all industries. We basically supply the solutions that allow them to do their business.

Our industry is a global one. Our competition is not local, but companies from around the world. We needed an international outlook in the way we do business, and invested heavily in technology – we were one of the first to adopt SAP’s ERP software. We wanted to create a global platform and let our customers know that we can design and manufacture from anywhere in the world. This allows us to provide more end-to-end solutions and create more value.

I think it’s accurate to say that the company is a reflection of myself. I had decided from a very young age that I wanted to be a technopreneur. I do what I’m familiar with – I’m old school in a way and very hands-on. I think it’s very important that you start with a business plan, one that is as detailed as possible. You need to have the knowledge before jumping in. It’s easy to start a company but the real challenge is making it grow.
