The electronic and box-build, design and manufacturing service provider ESCATEC, has recently purchased a new factory promising exciting new opportunities for customers. The new building, which will also be the new group headquarters, upgrades the company’s infrastructure, enabling even more digitalisation and flexible, leaner production flows. This will assure mutual growth and continuing innovation for both customers and ESCATEC, now and in the future.
The relocation is expected to be completed by May, 2018. The move to the centre of Penang’s Electronic Cluster, consolidates all ESCATEC’s existing Penang facilities into the 21,000m² floor space, with the exception of the plastics production, which will remain at its present location just a few minutes’ drive from the new HQ. All current employees will continue to contribute their wealth of skills, experience and know-how at the new location.
New digital infrastructure for ESCATEC’s leading-edge equipment
The building’s modern infrastructure is designed to optimally combine and digitalise the company’s state-of-the-art equipment and assures the innovation customers require now and in the future. ESCATEC have invested 18.5 million USD, without any external financing, in the new facility incorporating additional automation and traceability for manufacturing Medical, Industrial, Automotive and high quality Consumer products.
Johan Halling, General Manager of ESCATEC Electronics and ESCATEC Medical in Penang says, “Our new building is designed for modern, smart production. The competence and experience gained over forty years has been leveraged to continue evolving our services to customers in an increasingly competitive industry.”
