The US is not only a leader in electric cars, but it’s also a leader among countries in electromechanics jobs.
I started working at Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (SMC) in 2013, and I am leaving the United States to live and work in China, my former employer.
While there, I met some of the people who have been making and manufacturing electronics since the late 90s, and the company has grown into a top semiconductor manufacturer in China.
In addition to being a fab owner, I’ve worked with the company on the development of many of its products.
I’ve spent my life designing and building devices that we could sell to customers in the United Kingdom, Australia, Europe, and elsewhere.
I also have a lot of experience with electromechansics in manufacturing and testing, and so I’ve been impressed with their technical and manufacturing skills and their willingness to learn.
When the market opened up, we were looking for people with a broad range of experience and backgrounds, and that was where I found Semiconductors Manufacturing Company.
I was able to find someone with a lot more experience in electronics than I was and that fit perfectly.
I have been impressed by the people we have hired, and also by the growth they have experienced.
When I left Semicelectronics Manufacturing Company in 2015, it was in a good position to go into the semiconductor industry, and after a year, I thought, Why not start a new company in China?
It’s been great.
We have more than 300 employees now.
The Chinese market is a booming one.
And we can bring a lot to that market, including a large number of jobs.
In the first half of 2018, we expanded into the United Arab Emirates, and our first customer there is a major electronics company, Solexat, a French multinational.
In 2019, we started work in the Chinese mainland.
In 2020, we opened a manufacturing facility in the UAE and now we have more locations in the Gulf and Southeast Asian countries.
In 2021, we made a strategic acquisition in India, bringing over 100 jobs from manufacturing to the country.
In 2022, we entered the Chinese semiconductor market and were able to increase our manufacturing capacity by a further 60%.
The growth of our business is amazing, and we have so many new customers.
In 2018, the company made an acquisition of a $1.3 billion facility in China to increase its capacity.
In 2017, we closed the deal to open a $200 million manufacturing facility.
In 2016, we completed the acquisition of an electronics manufacturing plant in the Philippines and have more in the pipeline.
We’re also looking forward to expanding into the Southeast Asian market.
We will be doing the same in 2020, and this will be our fourth semiconductor manufacturing facility to be in Southeast Asia.
In fact, we will be opening a new factory in Singapore in 2021.
This will be the first of a number of Chinese manufacturing facilities in Southeast Asian nations.
We are also very proud of our recent investments in India.
We recently completed a $150 million deal with an electronics manufacturer and will be building a $40 million manufacturing plant to be built in India by 2021.
We’ve already started construction of a second factory in India and are very confident that we will expand our production capacity there as well.
We’ll also be investing in a third manufacturing facility at the site of our factory in Shenzhen in 2021, with plans to build another $100 million factory in the country over the next four years.
And then we’ll be bringing a manufacturing plant into Thailand in 2022, with our plans to add an additional $200 to the existing facilities in Thailand.
So there are so many opportunities in the world of semiconductor.
As we look to the future, we want to build and partner with countries with innovative and creative people.
In India, we’ve seen great things happen over the past five years with our government and the private sector.
We see that our government is leading in the race to build a clean energy economy.
And our private sector is also making tremendous investments.
We want to be a global leader in semiconductor technology.
In Singapore, we’re expanding our factory.
We also have another facility in India in 2021 and another facility planned for the same year in India that will be built with more than $200 billion of investment.
We believe we can be the leader in the semiconductors industry in Singapore and in Thailand by 2021, which will be one of the most successful expansions in our history.
In order to build on the success we have seen over the last five years, we need to do more.
We need to make more semiconducting products and services.
We must develop our manufacturing capabilities, invest in research and development, and build our supply chain.
And the semicelectronics sector is in a strong position.
As the industry continues to grow in China and India, it is important to build the
