Tronics expands MEMS manufacturing, HQ

September 19, 2011 — MEMS foundry Tronics upgraded its Grenoble headquarters and manufacturing facilities, making a more than half a million euro investment, along with new equipment capital expenditures.

Due to a recent order bookings increase, along with what the company reports as "several years of solid performance," Tronics invested in a larger headquarters and is expanding its manufacturing facilities for micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS).

The company has occupied a 1400-sq.m. building for offices and manufacturing cleanrooms since 2003. Now, all offices and engineering labs have moved to a new, modern 1500-sq.m. building nearby. The former office space will now be used exclusively for manufacturing, including a new back-end cleanroom. The additional space will be used for more MEMS assembly capacity and added process capabilities and automation. The existing wafer fab will be fully operational during the transition.

The project is self-funded and will be 100% complete by the end of 2011.

Tronics is a full-service MEMS manufacturer with wafer fabs in France and the USA, and representation in Asia. Tronics’ engineering support includes electronic interface development, assembly and custom packaging, but also medical-device development. Learn more at
