Global Invacom Group Limited ("Global Invacom" or "the Group"), a satellite communications ("Sat Comms") equipment provider listed on the Singapore Exchange and the U.K. AIM Market, today announces that its Shanghai manufacturing arm has obtained a patent for a new auto-assembly machine.

Global Invacom Manufacturing (Shanghai) Co Ltd ("GISH") has secured a utility patent for the structure and components of an innovative auto-assembly machine for F-type connector screws, doubling the efficiency and making the process more stable than manual work.
