The argument is as old as ..., 11 June 2015 [cached]
The argument is as old as they come and the answer is different for everyone, but PSI Incontrol Sdn Bhd chairman and managing director Harvinder Singh, believes in his case it is the latter. He says, "I've not worked a single day in my life.
Harvinder Singh
Harvinder, who began as a trainee draftsperson in a multinational company in the late 1980s after completing his degree in electrical and electronics engineering, said having been curious about how things work since his youth also moved him in this direction.
He noticed that in the early days, many large foreign companies only had sales operations in Malaysia rather than full-fledged research and development centres. He said that troubleshooting required the local employees to contact engineers based elsewhere.
"This prolonged the response times that, in some critical industries, our customers couldn't afford," he said.
In 10 years of employment, during which he rose to global role as a regional manager overseeing business in South-East Asia, the Americas and Europe, he discovered that he had a knack of understanding and simplifying how technologies worked and explaining it to others.
"That period also saw a shift from electromechanical and analogue devices to a higher level of digital electronics, involving more algorithms, microprocessors and digital displays," he said.
He was subsequently offered a role focusing on his employer's Europe business, which involved being relocated there. He declined as he wanted to spend more time with his family in Malaysia.
Knowing that his career growth would be affected, he left the company and in 1997 setup SAT Systems for Automation Technology Sdn Bhd (later renamed VA Tech SAT Sdn Bhd in 1999) as a joint venture with the subsidiary of a Austrian public listed technology company. n fact, he only did so after he turned down an earlier offer to be the managing director of the South-East Asian operations for the Austrian company.
"I agreed on the condition that there would be full technology transfers and that engineering work would be done independently by us," Harvinder said.
With RM200,000 of his own savings, he started the company based on a handshake and hired four engineers to commence work.
Harvinder says, because of his passion for the job, he never counted the hours he put in.
Another aspect that has gotten him this far, apart from being able to deliver value to customers, is his passion in developing people."In the early days of the company, I sent my engineers overseas for training. Only by equipping them with the best knowledge would they be able to bring out the best in themselves and contribute to the company's growth," he said.
Work is not the only thing that occupies him. In 2000 he raised funds to set up the Sri Dasmesh International School, a not-for-profit private school which became self sustaining after five years. The school has 450 students today.
"When you take away the element of profit, the only focus is to bring out the best in every child," he said proudly.
He said the official agreement to set up the company was only signed after more than a year, having grown from three pages to over 50, while his team continued to deliver on projects.
Because the parties trusted each other, they eventually did a share swap with Harvinder acquiring shares in the German listed company.

PSI Control Systems Automation Technology - Harvinder Singh Talks about Global Partnering on BFM, 8 Aug 2014 [cached]
Harvinder Singh, Chairman of PSI Incontrol Sdn Bhd was interviewed by BFM, an independent local radio station, on the subject of Global Partnering as a Business Framework. He described it as a growth into an overseas market by considering the organization's strengths and the possible barriers to entering the host country. According to him, the market in developed countries would usually be carved out by the many multinational corporations which have entered and dominated the market. For developing countries, on the other hand, the market is basically 'free for all' where the opportunities for market entry and local partnerships are huge. However, not all developing countries are easy options.
Taking an example, from his experience, Harvinder discovered that India, despite having a huge market, the hurdles to entry are high, price levels are very low and payment practices are somewhat frustrating. It would require a minimum of a 10-year view prior to entry and a deep pocket to survive in the Indian market. Regardless of the odds, however PSI Incontrol has managed to forge partnerships with Indian industrial players. The company has also had successes in other developing and developed countries, namely Oman, Iran, Australia, Bahrain, Rwanda, and Thailand, to name a few. In some countries, the success has been very encouraging that PSI Incontrol has even set up branch offices, such as in India, Oman and Thailand. In Thailand, the company has successfully partnered with its provisional authorities of electricity and built 7 control centres in a 3-year project. Harvinder further added that in developing countries, the main focus would be to engage local technological partners where there would be a transfer of knowledge.
One of the key success factors to global partnering is engaging the most compatible partner. To be compatible, the size of the company is not a measure, says Harvinder.
"So that is how we manage it, through employment as well as through the local partners", says Harvinder proudly.
