Visco Technology Sdn. Bhd. is a foreign-owned company involved in the production of bio-medical and optical products, as well as the materials used in the manufacturing of lenses. With this expansion, the company will be producing medical lenses – the first of its kind in Malaysia. These lenses will be used to correct farsightedness and astigmatism, and also as an alternative to laser surgery. The approved project will focus on advanced R&D activities into new material development, lens-production technology, and biological safety. In fact, the company plans to establish an R&D facility in Malaysia to support the main research activities undertaken in Taiwan. A total of 147 additional positions are offered to those with a science and technical background. This export oriented project will contribute to the country’s export earnings as more than 90% of our products will be for the Taiwan, UK and China markets.
