TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance-critical applications, has announced the successful opening of its new Kuantan facility, creating a new global supply chain option for advanced electronics manufacturing. The Kuantan facility complements TT’s world-class operations in China, Europe, and North America. Despite the global pandemic, TT was able to accelerate the start-up of its Kuantan operations through the use of innovative virtual set up and training sessions. The facility successfully completed First Article Inspection (FAI) units for a key life sciences customer in May with the subsequent pilot going live in July.
Michael Leahan, EVP Power Solutions and Global Manufacturing, TT Electronics, commented: “This is a major milestone in our journey to expand our footprint in Southeast Asia. Ramping programs into full production exhibits the site’s capability while demonstrating the potential for future expansion.”
Responding to increasing market demands, TT has demonstrated its commitment to bringing customers expanded solutions in low-cost geographies. The Kuantan facility offers customers extensive integration capabilities in a state of the art facility while providing impressive new supply chain solutions and risk mitigation benefits for companies that have been navigating dynamic trade challenges, as well as benefits to businesses that are experiencing international expansion.
TT’s Kuantan facility is poised for growth, with operations centred on production of next generation electronics for top medical, aerospace, and industrial companies.
