Escatec purchases new factory

EMS-provider Escatec has invested in a factory building in Malaysia that is intended to also function as the new group headquarter.
The new building is aimed at upgrading the company’s infrastructure, "enabling even more digitalisation and flexible, leaner production flows", a press release reads. The relocation is expected to be completed by May, 2018.

The move to the centre of Penang’s Electronic Cluster also consolidates all of Escatec’s existing Penang facilities into a 21'000 m2 floor space, with the exception of the plastics production, which will remain at its present location. The total investment sum of USD 18.5 million (EUR 15.1 million) will provide additional automation and traceability for manufacturing Medical, Industrial, Automotive and high quality Consumer products.

Johan Halling, General Manager of Escatec Electronics and Escatec Medical in Penang, comments: "Our new building is designed for modern, smart production. The competence and experience gained over forty years has been leveraged to continue evolving our services to customers in an increasingly competitive industry."
