Sanmina Corporation has expanded its manufacturing facility in Thailand to support new technology products in networking, 5G, data centre, automotive/LIDAR, aerospace and defence.

The Nasdaq quoted company is an integrated manufacturing solutions company that manufactures some of the world’s most complex and innovative electronic, optical and mechanical products.

Augmenting its existing products, the site now has advanced custom packaging and assembly capabilities to manufacture advanced optical, high speed and radio frequency (RF) microelectronic assemblies and products. This expansion supports rapid growth for new technology products.

“A key priority at Sanmina is to leverage our vertical integration capabilities to help customers deliver innovative solutions that utilize the most advanced manufacturing methods and technologies,” said Jeff Reece, EVP of Business Development, Communications Networks at Sanmina. “Extending our optical and RF microelectronics expertise to Thailand enables us to develop new products and quickly ramp to volume production for customers across a variety of markets.”

Sanmina says that key differentiators at its Thailand facility include the ability to offer a complete solution across RF, microelectronic and optical development – the expanded capabilities in Thailand build on Sanmina’s global capabilities and integrated manufacturing services at the chip, component, module and complete system level.

It also offers an updated state-of-the-art clean room that provides the sterile production environment required for key aspects of optical and microelectronics production. It is Class 1000 and Class 10,000 certified.

New high-performance manufacturing equipment and mirroring capabilities enable the facility to quickly ramp production, while minimising delays and costs associated with consignment of major manufacturing assets.

Sanmina Thailand has been successfully supporting its customers in the region across a variety of complex markets for more than 30 years. This means that new customers can tap into a wide range of services from new product introduction and logistics, to after-market services.
