(StraitsTimes) Singapore’s Future Economy Committee will soon present its report on manufacturing in the island nation. It is likely to recommend that manufacturing continues to play an important role. The livelihood of 500,000 workers is at stake in this sector, about half of whom are Singaporeans and permanent residents. There are also jobs in finance, insurance, transport and logistics that support manufacturing companies which might disappear.
The Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC), an A*Star initiative in partnership with the Nanyang Technological University is conducting research that helps Singapore companies improve their capabilities. It does this through working with each of the 42 member companies that have joined ARTC. ARTC is helping Singapore companies step up their game in additive manufacturing, which is the industrial version of 3D printing, and robotics.
