Handicraft industry of Malaysia needs skilled workers to generate development in the sector although; sophisticated equipment and machines have been introduced in the sector, said Chief Executive Officer of Mariwasa Kraftangan Sdn Bhd (MKSB), Ms. Puteri Rafidah Megat Noh.

The CEO informed this to reporters after laying foundation brick for MKSB's second factory at the Industrial Zone. MKSB is one of the country's biggest producers of pewter, copper, silver and gold products and souvenirs. In order to improve skills in the factory, MKSB would provide opportunities even to the 'dropouts', she added.

Further she said that there is no need of high educational qualification to manufacture handicrafts, instead it needs skills. The second factory of MKSB was specifically set up to meet the demand for its products from both, local and international market, added the CEO.

The company that established in 1975 and employs more than 140 workers will spend RM 3 million for factory expansion and around RM 2 million to introduce sophisticated machines.
