Zollner Elektronik AG, market leader among EMS providers in Europe, is opening an additional site on the east coast of Tunisia. The first step is to start production in Enfidha at the beginning of 2023 in the building leased for that purpose. Activities surrounding the new construction of our own plant are running simultaneously.
Zollner is banking on organic growth and is investing in Tunisia as a further footprint for electronics production in the European target market.
With the new plant in Tunisia, Zollner is sustainably expanding the capacity and resources in the medium to long term for the production of PCBs and electronic modules in an industrial environment for the European market (EMEA).
Production will start at the temporarily leased 2,500 m² of production space at the beginning of 2023 with around 100 employees. Almost simultaneously, preparatory activities began for the realization of our own manufacturing facility. Approximately 10,000 m² of production space will be created in the first step. Count on completion in 2024.
“Our investment in the Enfidha location is a strategic expansion to our Best-Cost-Country option for the European market. With our two-stage implementation, we are achieving a quick start to production and with that a short-term solution for growing together with our customers. The long- term investment made into a total building area of close to 25 acres provides room for future, necessary expansions in order to be able to offer competitive solutions for our customers, also in the long-term.” says Martin Eisenhart, Senior Vice President of the Electronics Business Division at Zollner Electronics AG.
This location on the east coast of Tunisia represents an expansion of production capacity and has a good logistic connection to Europe. Additionally, it offers the necessary resources, well- trained specialist staff and the applicable know-how in electronics production to be able to solve the prevailing bottlenecks and serve customer demands according to the standardized, global Zollner Quality Standard.
