Marlow-expands-thermoelectrics-manufacturing-in-Vietnam

(November 23, 2010 – Marketwire) Marlow Industries, thermoelectrics manufacturer, recently expanded manufacturing operations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to expand capacity and provide low-cost, high-quality products to address the increasing needs of the market.

The site opened in August 2005, and now spans close to 5,000m2 in active factory/warehouse floor, with state-of-the-art equipment and an innovative approach to microelectronics assembly, and approximately 900 local employees. The facility offers stability, process capabilities, and production repeatability for markets such as gesture recognition electronics. The gesture recognition electronics market sparked the expansion of this facility in 2009-2010. Within the first four months of production, the Vietnam site obtained ISO 9001:2008 certification and produced almost four million units with zero return-rate.

Enforcing a "no-expat" policy, Marlow remains dedicated to developing local talent for the good of Vietnam, and providing high paying jobs. "The Vietnamese workforce has demonstrated a dedication to quality production with an eagerness to learn. This attitude gives management the confidence to continue investing in Vietnam and its employees," comments Kevin V. MacGibbon, president II-VI Vietnam.

Looking ahead, Marlow focuses on a $2.5 million site investment designed to support Marlow’s rapid market share increase in the commercial, telecom and automotive markets.
