What is hot? Top 10 EMS providers locations in Europe
Update to comments: evertiq has made a list from the top 10 biggest EMS provider’s locations in Europe, (Russia and Israel are also included in the list). All locations below are not just manufacturing plant some others are offices, research centres and others.
The locations and the EMS providers are listed after size. Kinpo Electronics/Cal-Comp Electronics are not in the list, because they don’t have any locations in Europe, only in China and Thailand. Flextronics is dominating the locations in Europe due to the take over of Solectron last year. The company now has location in seventeen European countries. Jabil is located in eleven countries in Europe, while Elcoteq is present in nine. Foxconn has locations in eight countries, Sanmina-SCi in seven, Celestica in four, Benchmark in three, Venture in three and USI also in three. The UK and Ireland are leading the list, together with the Netherlands in Europe, followed by Hungary and Romania. The UK and Ireland have faced a lot of closures lately and most of the production in these countries has been transferred to Poland. The industry in Hungary continues to be export orientated, although the main focus lies on the production of electric machinery, electronics and motor vehicles. However Hungary was the only country that failed to show progress in the past four years. Romania is becoming a hot spot for EMS and OEM companies. Romania has the lowest labour costs of all European Union members, while Germany has the highest labour costs in the entire EU. Baltic states and Slovakia improved by 20-25 percent since 2000. This means that Hungary has lost touch with Slovenia and the Czech Republic. Furthermore Estonia and Slovakia have also developed stronger and have overtaken Hungary in the development race. New hot destinations in the EMS industry are Russia and the Ukraine. Foxconn and Flextronics are the companies that have established facilities in Russia, while Elcoteq has left the country. However rumours in the industry say that Jabil may also establish a plant in Russia. According to the latest reports, the final decision about a new plant in Russia will be made in August 2008. A country that has lost a lot of big EMS providers recently is France, but local players like Cofidur, Asteel and Lacroix are getting a stronger footprint in the country.
