TT Electronics, a provider of manufacturing solutions and engineered technologies, has announced that its Global Manufacturing Solutions (GMS) business is expanding its footprint in the Americas by opening a new state-of-the-art facility in Mexicali, Mexico, and investing in its Asia Pacific operations to increase capabilities at its existing Kuantan, Malaysia, facility.
“As a strategic manufacturing partner, we have built a solid reputation for delivering agile solutions and excellent customer service,” said Michael Leahan, Chief Operating Officer at TT Electronics. “We continue to invest in our global facilities and supply chain resources to directly support customer growth, and we are excited to announce significant expansion to our footprint in our GMS division.”
The new 75,000-square-foot Mexicali facility will employ around 250 people with capacity for up to six highly automated SMT lines. Offering fully integrated electronics manufacturing solutions, including PCB assembly, system integration and testing, the new facility will complement the company’s 125,000-square-foot operation in Cleveland, Ohio.
The 26,000-square-foot Kuantan, Malaysia, plant expansion includes the installation of a new, high-speed SMT line to support customer demand and increase production capacity. The facility is currently delivering first article systems for the healthcare and semiconductor equipment industries.
“Whether customers are seeking best-value-geographies for their product, risk mitigation against geopolitical uncertainties, or looking to reduce their carbon footprint by manufacturing locally to the end market—TT is well-positioned to support their needs,” said Leahan.
The new facility in Mexicali is on track to be operational in early 2024 and will provide a significant increase in capacity for customers in North America for electronic manufacturing services and high-level assemblies.
