Like here in Thailand, Malaysia has a lot of equipment fabricators. I'd start by searching for commercial kitchen equipment suppliers out of KL. I know there are a lot, as I've talked to them at trade shows here. The suppliers of related equipment are 9 times out of 10 also the manufacturer. As far as NDA's and keeping things confidential, I don't think you'll be very successful at that, but that's another story. You can also find a lot of fabricators say for related items such as ovens, or stainless steel tanks that have the capability to fabricate all you need is a good set of drawings, they will do the rest, and may not know anything about the process your making the item for. It's usually this type of guy that will give you a better price than the guy that knows what the commercial equivalent of a design may be worth, and then prices accordingly. All of our stainless for example comes from a guy that does gutters, and simple tables, but can follow a drawing for much more complicated items.

I am the captain of my soul.
