The company is led by Dr Jim Li who attained a PhD from Cambridge University, UK and he holds over 30 worldwide registered patents in the field of advanced technology deployment to electronic devices and manufacturing processes.
In 2009, Jim pioneered the world-1st dual-axis precision digital level embedded with ultra-high precision MEMS technology which greatly contributed to the precision engineering industries as evidently used by some of the world’s most technologically advanced companies and government institutions such as NASA, Airbus, BOEING, Lockheed Martin, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, Mazak, Carl Zeiss, Intel, Mitsubishi, Honda, Makino, BMW, ROLEX etc. In 2014, he further pioneered the world-1st smart luggage lock utilizing leading-edge proximity-access security technology, and subsequently winning the prestigious U.S. CES 2015 and 2016 Innovation Award in consecutive years.
Dr Jim Li published numerous papers in the area of new product introduction (NPI) strategy and manufacturing technology at leading international journals. Two of his papers were cited in a whitepaper published in 2014 by a governmental unit under Japan's Ministry for Economics, Trade and Industry (METI) on policy guiding Japanese promising SMEs to innovate and independently expanding their products and services into global markets instead of conventionally tagging along with their MNCs to internationalise. Presently, Dr Li is a visiting Research Fellow at the Institute for Manufacturing, Cambridge University, UK and he is also an Honorary Professor at Nottingham University Business School, UK.
Jim's entrepreneurial endeavor has led to the founding of DIGIPAS with its affiliated companies (known as Digipas Group) located at several strategic geographical regions. He brought with him over 20 years of experience in management and technical expertise.
