Radio systems and solutions company RFMD (RFMD) has assembled its 100 millionth module in its Beijing assembly facility.
Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of RFMD, made the announcement of the milestone while touring the Beijing facility. The company attributes the assembly milestone to continued strong sales of its industry-leading portfolio of cellular power amplifiers.
RFMD is now increasing its assembly capacity in its Beijing facility by approximately 100% in response to a robust handset market and continued strong demand for its module products. The company plans to complete the capacity expansion by December 2006.
Bruggeworth stated, "Our power amplifiers are found in approximately one half of the world's phones, and our customers include all of the world's major handset manufacturers. We are particularly focused on supporting the growing presence of handset manufacturers in Asia, and we are committed to increasing our manufacturing capabilities in Asia as the region continues to evolve as the handset industry's manufacturing center."
