Norwegian EMS Provider Kitron to Set Up Plant in China
November 20, 2009
The board of Norway-based EMS (Electronics
Manufacturing Service) provider Kitron has approved the company's plan to set
up a manufacturing plant in China, according to a November 10 report by Nikkei.
Location of Kitron's new plant is expected to be in the greater Shanghai
region, in light of proximity to Kitron's Ningbo sourcing office. Production of
products featuring relatively low complexity is slated to commence at this site
starting from the third quarter of 2010. It is estimated that with the
establishment of the new plant, there will be 4,000 square meters of new office
and manufacturing facilities for Kitron in China.
