Malaysia's Jakel eyes Brunei's defence textile market
Apr '16
Jakel Defence System Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned unit of Jakel Trading Sdn Bhd, is eyeing Brunei's defence textile market.

According to Jakel Defence System's Director of Business Development, Saiful Izhar Senawi, besides military apparel, the company planned to supply military equipment such as night google, jungle hat, rain coat, backpack and inner vest for the Brunei's defence market, the Bernama news agency has reported.

"Royal Brunei Armed Forces Commander Major-General Datuk Paduka Seri Mohd Tawih Abdullah visited the Jakel Defence's exhibition site at the Defence Services Asia Exhibition and Conference 2016 yesterday to view our collection," he told Bernama on Thursday.

He said there has been encouraging response from the Brunei commander's visit.

This is the third time Jakel Defence's has participated at the DSA following strong business prospects in the demand for textile apparel. Saiful Izhar said compared to previous participation in DSA events, the company received more encouraging response in the current edition.

Besides Brunei, Jakel Defence has also received encouraging response from other countries such as Timor Leste, Sudan and Bosnia-Herzegovina that had also shown interests to collaborate in the supply of military apparel for their countries.

Saiful Izhar said Jakel Defence recently supplied 2,000 units of additional military apparel to Maldives' Ministry of Defence which had previously ordered 10,000 units.

Jakel Defence had already established a strategic cooperation with the Maldives's Defence Ministry with the supply of high-quality military apparel which was suitable for the environment in the tropical island nation. The military apparel has also been digitalised in pixel-form with camouflage features.

Saiful Izhar also said that Jakel Defence has so far clinched contracts worth RM136 million ($35 million) with the Malaysian government for the supply of military apparel for the Malaysian armed forces.

He said Jakel Defence has also designed military apparel for the Royal Malaysian Air Force which would be introduced on June 1. (SH)
