Malaysian crystalware firm Langkawii Crystaal (LC) is expanding its operations in an effort to turn the company into a benchmark for crystal souvenir products in the region. “We are participating together with neighbouring countries to produce the Asean concept products which are unique pieces of crystal novelty items,” said LC group managing director Abdoul Rahman Abdullah. According to Abdoul Rahman, through the establishment of joint ventures, LC would become a leader in the region by exporting crystal-making technology. “With such joint ventures, we want to make sure that after 2003, when the Asean Free Trade Area (Afta) comes into place, LC will be well established and able to control imports of these items as well as determine the pricing,” he added. LC has a crystal village in Pulau Rebak, Malaysia, equipped with an international training school, a design centre, a research and development centre, as well as a crystal museum. Abdoul Rahman said that studios in Brunei and Indonesia are under construction and would be turned into a crystal distributing centre for the whole region. Completion is scheduled for March 2001. He also said that around 30 outlets would be opened in hotels and major shopping complexes.
