Dr Alastair Trigg from A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics was nominated by the SETSCO Services, for the Technology for Enterprise Capability Upgrading (T-Up) Excellence Award 2012 to recognise his exceptional contributions during his secondment to the company. SETSCO Services had embarked on a new growth model to rejuvenate its business.
Through the GET-Up Scheme which identified microelectronics as a potential growth area for SETSCO, Dr Alastair Trigg was attached to the company to help it move into this sector. He trained SETSCO’s staff and expanded the company’s testing capabilities to include microelectronics failure analysis, enabling it to become a one-stop shop for testing services, in particular, for the microelectronics industry. As a result, SETSCO achieved a 50 per cent increase in revenue in this area of business.
