Our new Suzhou site meets demand from semiconductor customers in the region

Smiths Group Chief Executive Andy Reynolds Smith today opened our new Smiths Interconnect site in Suzhou, China. The new facility meets growing demand for our innovative semiconductor test solutions in the region and allows us to expand our product offering to other key market segments. With advanced manufacturing technology, it will lead the way in production efficiency.

The opening was attended by John Edwards, the UK Government’s Consul-General in Shanghai, and Xu Huimin, Communist Party of China Suzhou Municipal Committee Member. The guests toured the site with senior leaders from Smiths Group including CFO-designate John Shipsey, Asia President Roland Carter and Smiths Interconnect President Karen Bomba.

The Suzhou site is home to an engineering team of 50 technical experts, who will work closely with customers, focusing on understanding their needs and providing customised solutions to help solve their challenges – all the way from delivering next-generation 5G mobile networks to creating artificial intelligence.

China drives 25% of the world’s total economic growth and is an important growth region for Smiths too, where we employ nearly 2,000 people. Investments like the Suzhou site are raising our profile further and bringing our people and technologies closer to customers.
