Trade dispute and Shifting to a Southeast Asia Manufacturing base

The whole world is watching as the US and China confront each other on the issues of trade and tariffs and companies shifting their manufacturing base to Southeast Asia. In March 2018, the United States began making moves to slow Chinese imports by placing tariffs on certain goods made in China and other countries.

Then, on July 6, 2018, the US began to collect a 25% tariff on 818 Chinese products with a value of US $34 billion, the first tariffs specific to China. The second round of tariffs, which would place a 25% tariff on 284 Chinese products valued at US $16 billion was already under consideration.

Since that time, the two countries have gone back-and-forth between raising tariffs and negotiating. This uncertainty has led to many manufacturers moving their operations either entirely or partially out of China.

However, tariffs and the looming trade war are not the only cause of this migration. Many businesses were already looking for alternatives, as the cost of doing business in China has increased. Chinese minimum wages have gone up, and China has begun to address its many environmental concerns contributing significantly to the rising cost of doing business in China.

Many companies have already made their move out of China. Internal data from QIMA shows demands from US companies for inspections and audits at Chinese facilities fell by 12.7% in 2019 compared to 2018.

Countries in Southeast Asia had increased requests for inspections; Vietnam, for instance, had a 21% increase the same timeframe. Overall, South Asia had a 34% increase in the demand for inspections and audits in the first half of 2019

The midyear survey performed by QIMA shows that 80% of the US and 67% of EU respondents are already sourcing via different countries, or planning to do so soon.

What are the options?

There are many choices to make when relocating your business from China. Some companies will leave China entirely, moving their complete operation, including raw materials and inventory. Other companies may find value in moving only a portion of their process to avoid tariffs.

Whichever the case, there are still more decisions to make in regards to which is the best solution for your company.

Stability, a friendly business environment, sufficient labor force, infrastructure, and logistical support are some of the critical considerations when anticipating such a move. Following that decision, facilities may need to be built, and workers will need to be hired and trained. Each country has different requirements and incentives.

Restarting a business in a new country can be quite time-consuming and costly.

Moving your operations to a new country means there will be new rules. Not only are laws and regulations different, but legal systems, language, and culture will also be different as well. Many brand owners and manufacturers have considered shifting their manufacturing lines to Southeast Asia. However, Southeast Asia is quite diverse. For instance, in Southeast Asia, each country has its language and culture.

Malaysia is a multicultural nation where many languages, such as English, Malay, and Mandarin, are spoken. The Malaysian legal system is based on British common law. In 2018 Malaysian exports reached an all-time high of about US $250 billion.

Vietnam is a more homogenous than a country like Malaysia. The legal system there is based on French civil law along with their communist ideology. According to Trading Economics, Vietnam has doubled its exports in recent years due primarily to the low cost of doing business there, including wages. In 2018, export revenues were up by 13.8% and estimated to be at US $244.72 billion.

Quality

Another issue that may arise when working with new suppliers and new workforces is quality. This questionable quality is a real concern. Many companies have experienced these problems when working with a new supplier. You will want to find a company with a stable and well-trained workforce, which will be key to your success when relocating to a new country and working with new suppliers.

As mentioned earlier, it takes some time to negotiate and set up a new enterprise in a different country. As more and more businesses move their facilities out of China, it may take even longer for you to line up all the resources you will need.

Planning always pays big dividends, and this is no exception.

Shifting your manufacturing to Southeast Asia

Waiting for the right time can put your profits and even your company in peril. Don’t get caught with decreasing orders due to tariffs. Stay on top of the situation; find a reputable company which is already a part of the global supply chain.

One such company is Ge-Shen, incorporated in 2003, with headquarters in the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur with factories in 3 locations: Penang, Johor and Hanoi – a Southeast Asian contract manufacturer.

Southeast Asia manufacturing base
Penang, Johor, Hanoi: Ge-Shen’s manufacturing base plus Kuala Lumpur and Singapore for offices.

With capabilities such as injection molding, metal stamping, surface finishing, assembly and more, Ge-Shen provides services to a wide range of industries including consumer electronics, automotive, home appliances, and medical devices, to name just a few.

Machen Sie sich bereit für die Zukunft mit Ge-Shen – Industrie 4.0 – auf die Ge-Shen Art

Der in Malaysia ansässige Auftragsfertiger und Lösungsanbieter ist auf die Herausforderungen der Industrie 4.0 vorbereitet – sei es in seinen internen Prozessen und zum Nutzen seiner großen Kundenbasis.

[Click here for English version]

Industrie 4.0 ist zweifellos der Megatrend, der überall für Aufsehen sorgt – die bisherige Art Geschäfte zu tätigen hat sich in den letzten 10 Jahren stark verändert und wird dies auch weiterhin tun. Auch wenn die Industrie 4.0 noch gewissermaßen „in den Kinderschuhen steckt“ werden sich Volkswirtschaften und Unternehmen grundlegend verändern, da datengetriebene, KI-gestützte, vernetzte “intelligente Fabriken” zum “neuen Normalfall” werden. Der Übergang von Fertigungsprozessen und -technologien wird zur sogenannten vierten industriellen Revolution führen.

Ge-Shen ist bestens vorbereitet und bereit, diese Herausforderungen erfolgreich zu meistern. Die Ge-Shen Corporation hat ihren Sitz in Südostasien mit Hauptsitz in Kuala Lumpur und drei Standorten in Penang, Johor und Hanoi in Malaysia und Vietnam. Das Unternehmen verfügt über ein globales Vertriebsbüro in Singapur – ein wahrhaft südostasiatisches Unternehmen, das weltweit modernste Lösungen anbietet.

Ge-Shen erkannte frühzeitig, dass die traditionelle Art der Fertigung in den kommenden Jahren an Bedeutung verlieren wird. In der Industrie 4.0 dreht sich alles um Daten und wie diese Daten miteinander verknüpft werden, um sekundengenaue Entscheidungen zu treffen. Die immer weiter verbreitete Nutzung von Daten für die Analyse und Vorhersage ist eng mit entsprechend steigenden Kundenerwartungen verbunden – Erwartungen, die Ge-Shen bestens erfüllen und sogar übertreffen kann.

Da die Produktlebenszyklen deutlich kürzer werden, halten Modelle, Produktversionen und Varianten nicht mehr 3-5 Jahre, sondern lediglich 1-2 Jahre. Der Misserfolg eines Produkts kann innerhalb von wenigen Monaten nach der Einführung dieses neuen Produkts festgestellt werden. Erfolg und Misserfolg von Produkten hängen somit von guten Produktdesigns ab, die auf dem Markt auch akzeptiert werden.

Damit wird die Markteinführungszeit, d.h. die Zeitspanne der Einführung neuer Produkte vom Design bis zur Markteinführung, immer kürzer – waren es früher 90 Tage Durchlaufzeit, sind es heute 45 Tage, was früher 45 Tage waren, sind heute 25 Tage. Prompte Reaktionsfähigkeit und schnelle Werkzeugentwicklung ist zur “neuen Normalität” geworden. Just in Time wird in der Fertigung immer wichtiger – die Kunden wollen keinen großen Haftungsrückstand, gleichzeitig verkürzen sich auch die Anlaufzeiten deutlich. Die Qualitätsansprüche bleiben konstant hoch, doch das Qualitätsmanagement wird immer schärfer, da sich die Prozesse mit Lichtgeschwindigkeit bewegen. Das Management des Produktionsprozesses über Daten und Prozesse wird zum entscheidenden Faktor.

Ge-Shen ist auf diese Herausforderungen bestens vorbereitet. Neben der ständigen Anpassung an die Fertigungstechnologie durch Investitionen in moderne Maschinen und neue Verfahren wie Flüssigsilikonkautschukspritzguss und Reinraum-Spritzguss, um den Qualitätsstandard und den neuesten Stand der Technik aufrechtzuerhalten, investiert Ge-Shen generell stark, um den Anforderungen der Industrie 4.0 zu entsprechen.

Ge-Shen ist bereit, sich diesen steigenden Anforderungen durch Investitionen in Technologie zu stellen – es hat erfolgreich sein Programm zur digitalen Transformation gestartet. Darüber hinaus wurde viel Wert auf die Modernisierung des Backends gelegt. Ge-Shen bildet seine Mitarbeiter ständig weiter – um alle Ge-Shen-Mitarbeiter auf die Zukunft vorzubereiten. Ge-Shen hat ein Programm zur Modernisierung seines ERP gestartet und führt ein MES ein, Standort für Standort. Das Ergebnis – datengesteuerte Entscheidungsfindung in Echtzeit in naher Zukunft.

Ob Kunststoffkomponenten oder Metallkomponenten, ob Montageleistungen mit zusätzlichen Anforderungen an das Supply Chain Management – lassen Sie die Ge-Shen Group IHR Lösungsanbieter sein. 100%, 360 Grad, 24/7 – vertrauenswürdig, zertifiziert, innovativ, engagiert. Lassen Sie uns Ihnen zeigen, wie wir Sie bei der Herstellung Ihres Produkts unterstützen können, während wir die Industrie 4.0 leben.

Get Ready for the Future with Ge-Shen – Industry 4.0 – the Ge-Shen Way

Malaysia based Contract Manufacturer & Solutions Provider all set for challenges of Industry 4.0 – in internal processes and for benefit of large customer base

[Klicken sie hier für die deutsche version]

Industry 4.0 is undoubtedly the megatrend causing disruption everywhere – the traditional ways of doing business have changed significantly over the last 10 years and will continue to do so. Whilst still at the dawn of the Industry 4.0 age, economies and businesses will undergo fundamental change as data-driven, AI-powered, networked “smart factories” become the “new norm”. The transition of manufacturing processes and technologies will lead to the so-called fourth industrial revolution.

Ge-Shen is well-prepared and ready to master these challenges successfully. Ge-Shen Corporation is located in southeast Asia with its headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, and with three locations in Penang, Johor and Hanoi in Malaysia and Vietnam. It has a global sales office in Singapore – a truly southeast Asian company, offering state-of-the art solutions on a global scale.

Ge-Shen recognised early on that the traditional way of manufacturing may become less relevant in coming years. Industry 4.0 is all about data and how this data links together to make second-by-second decisions. Ever increasing widespread use of data for analysis and prediction is closely linked to rising customer expectations – expectations which Ge-Shen is well prepared to meet and to surpass.

As product lifecycles become distinctly shorter, models, product versions and variants no longer last 3-5 years, but now rather between one and two years. The failure of a product can be seen within months of the new product introduction. Success and failure of products really depend on good product designs which are well accepted in the market.

Time to market, i.e. time span for new product introduction from design to market is therefore becoming increasingly shorter – what used to be 90 days lead time tends to be now 45 days, what used to be 45 days has shortened to now just 25 days. Rapid response and quick tooling development has become the “new norm”. Just-in-time manufacturing is becoming increasingly important – customers do not want to have a huge backlog of liability, – simultaneously ramp-up times also decrease markedly. Quality expectations remain constantly high, however quality management becomes tougher as things move at lighting pace. Production process management via data and the process itself becomes the crucial factor.

Ge-Shen is well prepared for these challenges. Apart from constantly keeping pace in terms of manufacturing technology by investing in newer machines and new capabilities such as liquid silicone rubber injection moulding and clean room injection moulding, thus going the extra mile to maintain its high-quality standards and state-of-the-art technology, Ge-Shen is also heavily investing to meet the requirements of industry 4.0.

Ge-Shen is ready to meet these increasing demands by investing in technology – it has successfully launched its Digital Transformation Programme. Furthermore, a lot of focus has been put on modernizing the backend. Ge-Shen is constantly providing training to its workforce – to prepare the whole Ge-Shen Staff to embrace the future. Ge-Shen has started a programme to modernize its ERP and is introducing a MES, site by site. Result – real time data-driven decision making in the near future.

Be it just plastic or metal components, or assembly services with the added requirement of supply chain management – let Ge-Shen Group be YOUR Solution Provider. 100%, 360 degrees, 24/7 – trusted, certified, innovative, committed. Let us show you how we can help you manufacture your product as we embrace Industry 4.0.

Metal stamping manufacturer in Johor, Malaysia completes the acquisition of factory

What started out as opportunistic move over a year ago has turned strategic now, as Demand Options, Ge-Shen Corporation Berhad’s metal stamping unit is able to fully utilize the space in the new factory. With increased capacity, it is able to serve more customers in the supply of precision metal stamping parts around Johor, Malaysia and rest of the world.

First announced 2 May 2018, Demand Options rented the property with an option to purchase. This gave flexibility to the management to organize its finances and operations to do its production planning. However, as business ramps up, the Management took a view that exercising the option to purchase early was more beneficial – financially and strategically as major improvements were to be made to improve the property.

Today, the transaction has completed.

Expanded metal stamping facility
The new facility is directly neighboring Demand Options’ current facility

Extending Metal Stamping Capabilities

Demand Options has been in the metal stamping and sheet metal fabrication since 1997 in Johor, Malaysia. Previously growth has been hampered by the lack of space as it was challenging to make incremental capacity increases in another site. Following this acquisition, Demand Options has ordered a further 13 units of metal stamping machines of various size. This increases its metal stamping machines from 20 to 33 units (+65%). Some 7 units has arrived and the rest is expected to arrive in the coming months.

New metal stamping has arrived the Johor facility
The machines are arranged in such a way that robotic arm transferring is possible: reducing takt time, cycle time and overall costs.

Renovation on the new site has started earlier in the year, just as enquiries for metal stamping parts has picked up. With ample space now, the Management is confident that it will be able to make specific and concentrated investments into further capacities where required.

Demand Options can perform various different processes, for example, both progressive and single functions, spinning, riveting, tapping, CMT welding etc.

Growing together

Ge-Shen has been in expansion mode over the past years and is continually looking at various options to continue growing.

Overall, Ge-Shen now occupies more than 550,000 square feet of factory space in 4 different sites in Johor, Penang and Hanoi. Ge-Shen aims to continue developing capabilities in order to serve customers better.

Ge-Shen is looking for various business development opportunities and welcomes and any enquiries.
