Contract manufacturer Escatec is setting up an innovation hub in Heerbrugg, Switzerland and looking for more expertise.

The site, adjacent to its European factory, will host 22 Design and Development (D&D) engineers to provide support for mass manufacturing or as a stand-alone service.

The factory has a focus on production of advanced electronics and Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MOEMS) assembly. The hub will help the D&D team work with OEM customers and brands  to turn concepts and early design ideas into manufacturable products.

“A major benefit to customers when partnering with Escatec is that we offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution. Not only do we have decades of experience and technical expertise across a very wide product portfolio, but we are also able to quickly understand our customers design challenges and can move seamlessly from D&D to NPI (New Product Introduction) to mass production within the same business. Not many electronics design service providers offer that,” said Asmin Perviz, the D&D manager who will head the new facility.

He is looking to boost the skills of the team by recruiting staff with expertise in high-power electronics, IoT, battery management systems, and user experience (UX) design.

Escatec was established in 1974 with its headquarters in Penang, Malaysia, and production facilities in Malaysia, the Czech Republic and the UK as well as Switzerland. It has been expanding over the past several years with the Group making major investments to acquire the latest technologies and capabilities, as well as significantly expanding its international production and design footprint via acquisition and partnerships. It is aiming for revenue of $450m this year.
