December 9th, 2015 – MSM Metal Industries SdnBhd (“MSM”) participation in Industrial Collaboration Programme (ICP) has given them an opportunity to develop the capability fare gate in manufacturing for MRT project (Jajaran SBK).
As a recipient of ICP program, MSM was awarded a contract amounting RM 5 million by Xerox Business Solution (France) SAS (“Xerox”) to produce 300 unit of Fare Gates. The units will be installed at MRT stations between Sungai Buloh and Kajang.
The stainless steel finished gate features a light-up door that changes colour between green and red which represents valid/invalid pass. The light features would be the first of its kind in Malaysia.
The gate prototype was completed in November 2015 and currently undergoing series of testing. The gates are expected to be mass produced by Quarter 1 2016.
The high quality standard and requirement set by MRT Corp. has driven Xerox to assist and guide MSM via knowledge transfer; hence benefiting local manufacturers by gaining potential business for future projects regionally and globally.
