Infineon Technologies AG has opened a new facility in China called Infineon Integrated Circuits (Beijing) Co. Ltd., located in the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area. In addition to sales and marketing, application R&D and central functions, the new entity houses an IGBT stack manufacturing facility and a technical center for automotive solutions.

“Global energy demand is constantly increasing, particularly in emerging markets like China, one of the most important and fastest growing strategic markets for Infineon,” said Peter Bauer, CEO of Infineon Technologies AG. “Infineon has dedicated many years to develop state-of-the-art semiconductor solutions. This new entity will enable us to raise our output to meet the extremely expanding demand especially for energy efficiency and electromobility solutions in China and brings us closer to our customers in this region.”

The new Infineon entity in Beijing will support all three Infineon business segments, including Automotive, Industrial and Multimarket as well as Chip Card and Security. Currently, Infineon develops, produces and markets innovative semiconductor solutions at several locations in China with around 1,700 employees serving the energy efficiency, mobility and security needs of the global and the Chinese market.
