Top Glove, Aantum sign MoU to attract more leading talent
KUALA LUMPUR, April 19 (Bernama) - Top Glove Corporation Bhd and the Alumni Association of National Taiwan University Malaysia (AANTUM) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to attract more leading talent towards its goal of becoming a Fortune Global 500 company by year 2030.
In a statement, the glove manufacturer said the three-year partnership would enable the company to tap into AANTUM’s network of National Taiwan University (NTU) Malaysian students with expertise in groundbreaking research and development that are specifically related to the healthcare manufacturing industry.
AANTUM has over 2,000 active alumni members nationwide, and 600 Malaysian students are currently pursuing their studies at the university.
Managing director Datuk Lee Kim Meow said the company recognises that it must keep evolving to stay abreast with, and ahead of global trends in the healthcare manufacturing sector.
"Keeping in mind that disruptive technologies such as advanced robotics, the Internet of Things, and automation are expected to dramatically reshape the business landscape from what it is today, we are confident that our collaboration with AANTUM will enable us to thrive in a complex and ever-changing future,” he said.
Meanwhile, Top Glove is also looking to collaborate with other world-leading universities, especially those in the Asian region to support its expansion plan, aiming to increase its capacity by an additional 100 billion pieces of gloves from financial years 2021 to 2025. - Bernama
