The finding was as a result from a consultancy programme conducted on five out of thirteen Groom Big (2) companies. These companies were identified and selected by the Malaysian Productivity Corporation (MPC), with the initiative to encourage, nurture and develop these SME entrepreneurs to become bigger entity and thus to enable them to compete domestically and globally. The companies comprised of food, pharmaceutical products, fixtures and parts for local car manufacturers as well as multi-service.
