Cal-Comp, the electronics manufacturing services company (EMS) within the New Kinpo Group, recently revealed that it will increase its presence in South America through the addition of a new factory and new production line.
The new factory will begin producing semiconductor packaging for electronic components in March and is expected to employee 600 individuals within two years. The new plastic injection production line at Cal-Comp's Manaus, Brazil-based facility will enable plastic parts to be made on-site for current products such as internal and external hard disks, routers, power suppliers and motherboards, as well as for future products like flash-memory devices.
The Manaus facility currently operates 12 assembly lines and is set to expand its workforce 30 percent over the next two years, which would result in 2,500 employed operators. New Kinpo Group holds numerous facilities around the world to reduce turnaround time and costs for customers while still maintaining the quality of its products.
"The strategic expansion of our factory in Brazil, coupled with the new semiconductor plant, will make Cal-Comp significantly more competitive on both a local and a global scale," New Kinpo Group CEO Simon Shen said. "These additions are a direct demonstration of our commitment to customer satisfaction in South America and across the globe."
