KUALA LUMPUR (July 18): US-headquartered Trilliant, a provider of solutions for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), smart grid, smart cities and IoT, is starting its manufacturing in Malaysia.
In a statement on Businesswire on Sunday (July 17), Trilliant said it has reached a major smart meter deployment milestone in Asia Pacific, with more than 3.5 million smart meters currently deployed and operational, with millions more planned.
Trilliant chairman and CEO Andrew C. White said manufacturing efforts were now underway in Malaysia.
“The plant will be an important hub for the Asia Pacific region and improve time of delivery to our valued customers.
“Our production process will be led by dedicated, experienced engineers that adhere to the highest levels of quality control and compliance.
“Trilliant is proud these products will say ‘Made in Malaysia,’ and we look forward to supporting the creation of additional high-tech jobs and enhancing local expertise,” he said.
White said the manufacturing team will be focused on the Trilliant Communications Module (TCM) and the Trilliant Street Light Controller.
He said not only will local production reduce delivery cycles, but it will also result in CO2e reductions in manufacturing and shipping processes as Trilliant delivers products to local customers among others across the region.
White said approximately 119 tons of CO2e will be reduced over the course of the next three years in Malaysia alone.
