We started operations in Malaysia on 29th January 2007 with the establishment of AIMFLEX Technology Sdn. Bhd. (formerly known as i-Stone Technology Sdn. Bhd.). Currently based in Skudai, Johor, the company started as a design house to provide systems integration for manufacturing test and measurement systems. The services provided to customers ranged from vague conceptualisation to actual prototyping and final deployment to the manufacturing floor. With the specialized knowledge and focus on core development for test and measurement methology, the company has become the strategic partners to various local and international MNCs especially in supplying turnkey test and measurement systems for their manufacturing floor.
Along the journey, the in-house capability was extended from design to fabrication, assembly, testing, commissioning and production support.
In 2010, we set up our in-house mechanical engineering team to develop mechanical designs for our specialised automation machines. With this we were able to undertake the entire engineering and software design of our specialised automation machines, comprising E&E designs, mechanical designs and application software design, which further increased our flexibility in customising specialised automation machines for our customers, which are mainly brand owners and contract manufacturers.
In 2011, we ventured into the distribution of manufacturing automation hardware and software through the Minitab brand of statistical analysis software used for statistical analysis of manufacturing processes; and Digi International brand of wireless communication devices and related embedded modules, which are mainly used for loT systems.
In 2013, we ventured into the design and fabrication of precision parts used in our specialised automation machines. This has enabled us to reduce our dependency on third party suppliers, whilst allowed us to have more flexibility in designing and fabricating precision parts with specific dimensions and/or designs required by our customers used for their specialised automation machines.
In July 2016, we further expanded our in-house capabilities to include the design and fabrication of metal panels and frames used mainly as casings and structure for our specialised automation machines. This expansion enabled us to further increase our flexibility in customising our specialised automation machines by designing and fabricating the specialised automation machines' metal panels and frames in-house. With our in-house design and fabrication capabilities, we have better control of our product quality and manufacturing lead time.
In April 2018, we became a distributor of Universal Robots to sell, install and provide supporting activities of their robotics technology equipment in Malaysia. The supporting activities include amongst others, integration service of robotic arms into our specialised automation machines and training for the use and application of robotic arms to customers.
In October 2018, we relocated all our manufacturing operations to the our new home at Taman Teknologi Johor. With the centralisation of our manufacturing and fabrication activities at a single manufacturing facility, we are able to optimise our entire manufacturing processes into a seamless flow to increase our efficiency and productivity.
In July 2019, AIMFLEX Berhad (formerly known as i-Stone Group Berhad) was listed on the Ace Market of the Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad with stock name “ISTONE” and stock code “0209”.
In August 2020, Dato' Dr. Awang Daud was appointed to our Board as Non-Independent Non-Executive Chairman. He assumed his current position as Executive Chairman on 16 February 2021.
In February 2021, the company changed the name and corporate identity from i-Stone to AIMFLEX. The name change is a result of a rebranding effort designed to mirror the growth and transformation of our company.
