Flextronics closes down = New EMS-company?

When the Danish unit of Flextronics announced their plans to close down in Skive, Denmark, many reacted. Now, the closing down may be the birth of a new EMS-company.
When Flextronics closes down in Skive, a whole community will be affected. Flextronics is - after all - one of the major employers in the region. A spark of hope has been ignited for some of those who are forced to look for new jobs; according to local newspaper Skive Folkeblad. Johannes N√łrgaard who worked for the EMS-provider might be willing to take on some of the staff and create a new company. "Our ambitions¬†are big,¬†but the project¬†is realistic", he says according to Skive Folkeblad and continues: "80-100% of¬†electronics¬†production today is automated and machines¬†cost¬†the¬†same whether¬†they are in¬†Denmark or¬†in China.¬†So even¬†though we¬†can no longer¬†compete when it comes to¬†large¬†mass production, we still have¬†an¬†opportunity when it comes to¬†small orders, high technology¬†and niche¬†production." Out of the 286 Flextronics employees that are affected by the closure, 20-100 could hope for a new job within the new company. The new factory would be located in Glyng√łre north of Skive (Denmark) in the old Jamo buildings.
