Sirenza Microdevices Inc. (SMDI) has opened a new 107,000 ft2 facility in Shanghai, China, featuring a high volume RF components factory in addition to an administrative, sales and engineering office building.

As a result, the company now has three multiple-use facilities in China. In addition to the new facility, the original Shanghai office is headquarters for customer service and applications support in Asia, and the Shenzhen office provides technical applications support and currently serves as the Asia regional test laboratory.

“Our facilities in China enhance our ability to provide real-time support to our expanding base of key customers, subcontractors and suppliers throughout greater Asia and, in particular, within China,” said Bob Van Buskirk, Sirenza’s president and CEO.

“We believe that moving our US-based commercial manufacturing to Shanghai will provide a long term, low cost manufacturing capability to support existing and future product lines as we expand our global operations.”

The nearby Premier Devices Inc. (PDI) factory, supporting the PDI business segment, has been moved to this new facility and is now fully operational.

The move of the SMDI business segment manufacturing operations to the facility is expected to be completed in the second half of 2007.
