Mr Chu has more than 28 years of experience in the machine vision industry and related fields. Before founding ViTrox in 2000, he worked as an instrumentation engineer for five years at Hewlett Packard Malaysia. While learning the fundamentals and techniques in this field, he travelled to countries like Singapore and the United States of America (USA), to study and assess the need for innovative and forward-thinking technologies and exponential growth.
