  • Ajay Marathe, COO of Enovix Corporation: “We are thrilled to announce this significant milestone in our journey to scale. In addition to working with YBS, we look forward to collaborating with MIDA, the Northern Corridor Economic Region and InvestPenang to include an investment incentive, which will support our long-term goals in Malaysia. Malaysia, especially the Penang region, is rich with semiconductor-trained engineers who have a manufacturing-excellence mindset. We’re pleased to advance our presence in the region to support our rapid growth.”
  • Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, Ministry of MITI: “I applaud YBS and Enovix for finalizing their agreement and establishing its manufacturing facility in Penang Science Park. This collaboration will create long-term opportunities for growth and employment in the clean technology sector.”
  • Yab Chow Kon Yeow, Chief Minister of Penang: “Penang has been a significant beneficiary of globalisation, playing a major role in global supply chains, not least in the E&E (electronics and electrical) sector. Key to our longstanding success and resilience has been the development, over the past five decades of a comprehensive local ecosystem comprising of multinationals (MNCs), large local corporations (LLCs) and small-medium enterprises (SMEs). The MNCs have played a significant role in developing our capabilities through providing opportunities to SMEs, who then have gone on to become LLCs, and in turn provide more, newer SMEs with similar opportunities. Indeed, I believe the collaboration between YBS International and Enovix Corp will follow a similar path.”
