Vibrant Kulim promises opportunities

On Oct 30, 2021, Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik (AT&S) held a ground-breaking ceremony for its new integrated circuit substrates manufacturing facility at the Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah.

At €1.7 billion (RM8.14 billion), the investment is by far, the Austrian company’s largest ever, promising 6,000 job opportunities once the facility is completed in 2024. The investment is the latest, injected into the industrial area.

Twentytwo13 spoke to several locals about Kulim and its growing potential as an industrial epicentre.
