Having already established Kuala Lumpur as its Southeast Asian hub, BAE Systems is now looking beyond peninsula Malaysia to strengthen its presence in East Malaysia, with a visit by senior company representatives


The focus of this trade mission will be state government, regional development agencies and local businesses throughout Sarawak, Sabah and Labuan.

BAE Systems has had a presence in Malaysia for more than 20 years with an established South East Asia regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. The Company is looking to play a significant role in Malaysia’s economic, technology and capacity development via partnerships with innovative SMEs, government agencies and key academic institutions, as well as supporting the development of skills and technology through vocational training.

As previously announced, BAE Systems is to expand its existing Malaysian joint venture with Boustead Heavy Industry Corporation, BHIC Bofors Asia Sdn Bhd (BHIC Bofors), which already has an industrial facility in Kota Kinabalu. This expansion will include manufacture and supply of gun systems for the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) and the wider Southeast Asian region.

Such initiatives translate to positive implications for the Malaysian economy – both in the East and in the peninsula. Through the joint venture, BHIC Bofors will produce new guns locally, using an increased number of parts from local suppliers. The Malaysian supplier base will be expanded through a ‘vendor development programme’ which includes technology transfer from BAE Systems Bofors’ factory in Karlskoga, Sweden.

BAE Systems has supplied Malaysia with Bofors naval guns for decades and today there are about 140 in service. BAE Systems' Malaysian joint venture, with BHIC Bofors Asia, was established in 2004 and has supported the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) over the last eight years. It now employs 22 people in Kuala Lumpur, Lumut and Kota Kinabalu. The joint venture currently supports the RMN with spares, maintenance, through-life support, training, lifetime extension, test, installation and setting to work on ships.

”BAE Systems recognises Malaysia’s ambitions to access sustainable technologies and capabilities, which will help to build a vibrant high technology industrial base with access to global markets. BAE Systems already has a long history working with Malaysian industry – Boustead included; we will continue to build on existing relationships and forge new ones” said John Brosnan, BAE Systems Managing Director of South East Asia.

"BAE Systems is committed to Malaysia, which our recent announcements demonstrate. We’ve signed memorandum of understandings (MOUs) with Composites Technology Research Malaysia (CTRM), Malaysian Industry Group High Technology (MIGHT), Masterplan Consulting and we’re sponsoring Malaysian students to study in the United Kingdom through BAE Systems Malaysia Chevening Scholarships, thereby helping to add sustainable value to the Malaysian economy, investing in human capital and growing the indigenous technology base. Our involvement in Malaysia isn’t just limited to defence – it is far broader than that"explained John Brosnan.

KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 (Bernama)-- BAE Systems, a global defence, security and aerospace company, has a ready proposal for the Malaysian government in its bid for the Royal Malaysian Air Force's MiG-29N replacement contract.

The proposal comprised a 100-page list of technologies that the company was willing to transfer as well as names of local and overseas companies that were willing to participate in the process, said Group Business Development Director Alan Garwood.

"This is something that we have shown to some of the members of government here. This is not a memorandum of understandings (MoUs) that will never happen. This is 100 pages of real work, not just BAE Systems but also our other partners like EADS and Rolls Royce.

"They are all offering works for Malaysian companies and this is not empty promises. We will deliver," he told Bernama.

Besides, BAE Systems which has worked with local companies like Boustead and Airod, will leverage on the existing partnership with these companies as well as new local partners that have the capability to source not only locally but overseas.

Citing the example of Composites Technology Research Malaysia Sdn Bhd, he said when the company started the project, it was only manned by several skilled people and today the staff strength has grown to some 1,200 working on every Airbus model.

BAE Systems is among the 850 companies participating in DSA 2012, one of the top five defence and security exhibitions in the world, which kicked off today.

The UK-based company, which is the lead contractor on behalf of Eurofighter nations comprising the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Spain, is offering Eurofighter Typhoon as the replacement for the MiG-29N.

The company had expressed its interest since 2009.

"The RMAF has evaluated the aircraft and completed their trial few weeks ago in the United Kingdom and now we have to work with the Malaysian government to see whether we can identify an offer which can be attractive," he said.

Garwood, who was also part of British Prime Minister David Cameron's business delegation last week, said the re-establishment of Malaysia-Britain bilateral relations in almost 20 years, would further enhance the partnership between the Britain and Malaysian companies in the future.

"His government (Cameron) intends to fully recognise the absolute vital economic strategic importance of the Asean region and Malaysia in particular.

"This is probably the strongest bilateral relationship for the two countries in almost two decades," he said.

The Malaysian air force and navy have been BAE Systems' client, having purchased 10 Hawk Mk108 and 18 Mk208 aircraft in the early 1990s.

The world's second-largest defence company, by revenue, hopes to persuade the defence ministry to buy 18 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets for the RMAF.

It was reported that BAE's Eurofighter Typhoon will be competing alongside four other rivals - France's Dassault Aviation's Rafale; the US' Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet; the Swedish JAS-39 Gripen and the Russian Sukhoi Su-35 Flanker-E.

However, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said in Sept last year that Malaysia had no plans to purchase new military assets in the near future, including the long-awaited deal to replace RMAF's fleet of MiG-29N.

Currently, BAE Systems has six Typhoon customers already, excluding Oman, which is currently in negotiation.

To date, 707 Typhoon aircraft are under contract and more than 300 have been delivered from the production line.

All I hope is that by having production in Malaysia is that the workers get paid well and that the workers are satisfied with how their working conditions are.
