Scanfil to Initiate Planning to Double its Suzhou Factory in China

Reading time ( words)

Scanfil has decided to start planning to expand its existing factory in Suzhou, China. The possible investment in the expansion of the current facility has been estimated to be at EUR 6 million, and the construction work is estimated to be started in 2022.

“Customer demand has been increasing throughout the year and there are clear signals that demand will remain at a high level for the coming years,” says the CEO of Scanfil Petteri Jokitalo. ”Our investment model in Suzhou is flexible and we can add investments and production gradually to respond to the customer demand. For example, in 2018 we carried out an expansion with a similar setup in Sieradz, Poland and it has proven to be a great success.”

The current factory facility has approximately 17,000 m², of which approximately 10,000 m² is dedicated to production and warehouse. The potential investment increases production and warehouse area by around 11,000 m². The factory in Suzhou is an electronics and system integration plant. It serves a wide range of global customers, especially in Advance Consumer Applications and Medtech & Life customer segments.

Suzhou is a modern so-called close-to-customer market factory specializing in serving our demanding global and local customers.

Thriving Through Greater EMS Collaboration

08/23/2022 | Chris Peters, USPAE
Events of the past two years have clearly demonstrated the value of strong trading relationships. When materials become constrained, as in the recent microchip shortage or any of the pandemic-driven supply chain snafus, the companies that have those materials have a choice to make. Which customers will be put at the front of the line, and which will be placed at the rear? Too often, company executives assume that since they are a large buyer, they automatically will be prioritized when supplies are constrained. Research has shown that this is not always the case, and that assumption can leave a company in a weakened position.
