Introducing Nathan Shumugam: Applications Engineer

We are excit­ed to intro­duce our newest appli­ca­tion engi­neer, Nathan Shu­mugam, who joined Caplinq Malaysia on July 3rd, 2023. Bring­ing over 15 years of exten­sive expe­ri­ence in prod­uct man­u­fac­tur­ing, Nathan will play a cru­cial role in pro­vid­ing tech­ni­cal sup­port to our cus­tomers and col­lab­o­rat­ing close­ly with the sales team, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the Elec­tron­ics Assem­bly Adhe­sives sec­tor and Sol­der­ing mate­ri­als.

Nathan earned his Bachelor’s degree in Elec­tri­cal Engi­neer­ing from the Tech­no­log­i­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Malaysia. His pri­or work stints at esteemed com­pa­nies such as Keysight Tech­nolo­gies (MY), Motoro­la Solu­tions (MY), and Intel Micro­elec­tron­ics (MY) have laid a sol­id foun­da­tion, enabling him to excel as a tech­ni­cal­ly adept pro­fes­sion­al with­in CAPLINQ. Dur­ing his tenure with these multi­na­tion­al cor­po­ra­tions, Nathan was respon­si­ble for han­dling RF-based prod­ucts, ensur­ing their robust­ness before they reached the hands of customers.

Giv­en the diverse indus­tries preva­lent in Penang, where CAPLINQ is strate­gi­cal­ly locat­ed, Nathan is poised to sig­nif­i­cant­ly con­tribute to busi­ness devel­op­ment not only in Malaysia but also across South­east Asia. He will be report­ing to the Tech­ni­cal Ser­vice Man­ag­er based in the Philip­pines, work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly with team mem­bers across var­i­ous depart­ments globally.

Beyond his pro­fes­sion­al pur­suits, Nathan has a keen inter­est in main­tain­ing his fit­ness by embark­ing on hikes with both friends and strangers, immers­ing him­self in nature dur­ing camp­ing trips, enjoy­ing leisure­ly fish­ing, and tak­ing long walks.

Nathan’s Beliefs and Aspirations

Nathan pos­sess­es a strong belief in his capac­i­ty to lead, strate­gize, and dri­ve projects sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly. Fueled by his pas­sion for achiev­ing tan­gi­ble results, he pos­sess­es a keen insight into pro­duc­tion require­ments and cus­tomer appli­ca­tions, always ready to be the out­stand­ing con­trib­u­tor that CAPLINQ values.

While his friends and fam­i­ly describe him as an enthu­si­as­tic and pos­i­tive indi­vid­ual, Nathan him­self aspires to be rec­og­nized as both an egal­i­tar­i­an and a cham­pi­on in his endeavors.

Please join us in extend­ing a warm wel­come to Nathan as he steps into his new role, and let’s wish him a ful­fill­ing and suc­cess­ful jour­ney through­out his career with CAPLINQ.
