Dow Electronic Materials is to build a new manufacturing facility in Eastern China, in order to meet growing material demand and better serve the photovoltaics (PV), printed circuit board (PCB), and electronic and industrial finishing markets in Asia.
The new facility is set to be located at the company’s Zhangjiagang site in the province of Jiangsu, approximately 98 kilometers from Shanghai. Construction is expected to begin late this year, with production anticipated to begin in late 2011.
JR Chen, Asia general manager, Interconnect Technologies for Dow Electronic Materials commented: "The PCB, electronic and industrial finishing, and PV markets continue to expand in many parts of Asia, with especially strong growth in China."
He continued: "We are committed to supporting local customers efficiently and quickly in product production, delivery, and technical service. Our existing plant in Dongguan in Guangdong province is well-positioned to serve our customers in Southern and Western China, and this new Zhangjiagang manufacturing facility will enhance our supply chain to serve our customers in Eastern and Northern China."
