The 15 billion US$ Toshiba, is a manufacturer of mother machines, which are high precision machines used to build other machines. Most Japanese machine makers use Toshiba's machines to build their machines.

Forms and Gears with 3 state of the art factories at the Industrial Estate in Guindy and 40 years of fixture building experience is one of the few fixture builders in Asia with complete in-house facilities ranging from design, manufacture, run-offs, to prove out. This was the main reasons why Toshiba decided to partner with Forms &  Gears for this landmark project.
