Chinese copper clad laminates manufacturer to upgrade cleanroom space at its plant in Kirchheimbolanden
Ventec Electronics has announced a US$300k investment for its Central European facility in Kirchheimbolanden, Germany. The plan includes an upgrade to the cleanroom environment, an additional Yow Shi diamond blade saw and the installation of an aluminium coil cutting line.
Headquartered in Jiangsu, China, Ventec designs, develops, manufactures and sells high-quality copper clad laminates and prepreg bonding materials for the fabrication of a wide variety of printed circuit board (PCB) applications. The company is present in Europe and North America.
The investment follows on from a period of sustained growth and a successful listing of Ventec International Group on the Taipei emerging stock market in January 2018.
Ventec said it is committed to further strengthen its German facility and team in Kirchheimbolanden as part of the company’s phased and strategic investment plan across our global network of service centres.
The $300,000 investment programme at the German service centre has been approved for an upgraded cleanroom environment for prepreg panelisation and the installation of an additional diamond blade saw from Taiwanese manufacturer Yow Shi, to increase laminate cutting capacity and flexibility, and shorter lead-times. Details of the cleanroom space have not been disclosed.
Further investment is being made to the consumables business with the installation of an aluminium coil cutting line to improve capability and increase capacity for drill entry materials.
Mark Goodwin, COO EMEA & USA commented: "We are experiencing unprecedented growth at Ventec and the German business unit is central to Ventec International Group’s global supply chain strategy.
Goodwin continued: "In line with the growth in demand, the investment in Germany will ensure an increase of our production capability, sustained quality assurance and continued reliability of on-time material delivery by creating the capacity and flexibility to deliver on our goals, while at the same time committing to sustain employment at the facility in Kirchheimbolanden."
