MARCH 25–AUSTIN, Texas–In response to the rapid growth of demand for touch components in global markets, Touch International has expanded its business operations to new corporate headquarters here.
With close to 22,000 square feet of new manufacturing space, its capacity is expected to increase by 400 percent and will allow the company to three full shifts each day.
The move is part of Touch International’s strategic manufacturing expansion plan, with future planned replication of two other custom solutions centers in Europe and Pacific Rim. With Touch International’s high volume manufacturing facilities in Japan and Malaysia, this move allows Touch International to offer a complete touch solution from prototyping to custom to high volume touch sensors.
The Austin Custom Solutions Center will allow Touch International to double its local employee base and is a full optical lamination cell factory featuring cleanrooms with specialized equipment for manufacturing a wide range of touch screen technology. The Austin factory currently builds custom products for internationally known, Fortune 1000 corporations such as Rockwell Collins, and the US Air Force and services the aerospace, military, industrial, and medical markets.
At the new production facility, employees are currently assembling Digital Ink, the world’s thinnest and only form fitting, unbreakable touch screen. This new touch technology that Touch International recently released brings the functionality of a touch screen to any material, including a window store front, table top, or bullet proof glass.
