Ducommun Inc. announced that its Ducommun Technologies Inc. (DTI) subsidiary has opened and begun production in its new manufacturing facility in Thailand. Initial production supports DTI’s high performance and high reliability commercial microwave switches to service the growing demands in the US and other international markets. The facility is located in Saraburi, approximately two hours north of Bangkok. DTI is developing the site to accommodate future expansion of the facility as required to meet the growing needs of the marketplace.

Joseph C. Berenato, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Ducommun, stated, “We have begun production less than a year after approval from the Thailand Board of Investment to invest in this project. Our initial production will focus on commercial microwave switches for the global telecommunications marketplace. We are continuing to evaluate other commercial applications which would be a good fit for our Thailand facility and allow us to increase our manufacturing activities there.”
