Samtec, Inc., has announced the grand opening of its new design and manufacturing center in Taiwan that will design, develop and build leading edge connector products for multiple industries, including data com, telecom, artificial intelligence, machine learning, test and measurement, industrial, and medical.

The state-of-the-art 70,000 ft.2 facility (6,503 m2) consists of three floors of manufacturing, new product development and engineering, machine and equipment design, and connector and cable assembly. The manufacturing capabilities primarily focus on Samtec’s precision RF product line, which are used in the wireless infrastructure, aerospace and defense, computer, and test and measurement industries.

“The new Taiwan Design Center allows Samtec to produce increased quantities of next-generation interconnect product. In turn, this empowers our customers and partners to drive innovation and remain at the forefront of their markets,” said Brian Vicich, Samtec’s vice president of engineering. “The Taiwan Design Center enables Samtec to realize its aggressive new product development roadmap, while leveraging Taiwan’s wealth of talented associates to achieve our engineering and manufacturing goals.”

The Taiwan Design Center is the latest addition to Samtec’s global design, manufacturing and customer service footprint in support of Samtec Sudden Service®. In 2023, Samtec opened a Singapore Distribution Hub, built and fitted a new cable manufacturing facility in Pennsylvania and began expanding the Vietnam and Costa Rica manufacturing facilities.
