New high-tech repair center to open in Czech Republic
Solectron Corp ., a global provider of electronics manufacturing and aftermarket services based in Milpitas, CA, announced plans to open a new high-tech repair center in spring 2007 in Plzen, in the Czech Republic. “We ran an in-depth study concerning the options of expanding our business. As part of that study, we evaluated several Central European countries.… We selected the Czech Republic for its long-term affordability, a solid infrastructure, its rich talent base and good access to our customers throughout Europe,” says Craig London, executive vice president for Solectron Global Services.
According to Jana Pexova, chief of the regional CzechInvest Agency office in Plzen, the center will employ “many highly-skilled personnel. The company will need about 50 graduates in its repair center and even more people in the support services.”
A company press release says Solectron plans to invest more than $4.6 million (€3.5 million) in Plzen. The plant will offer repair services for Solectron’s customers, covering most stages in the repair cycle of high-tech electronics, which includes warranty management, parts management, repair and return, asset recovery and remarketing.
Solectron says it is one of the world's largest providers of complete product life cycle services, offering product design and new product introduction, supply chain management, lean manufacturing and aftermarket services such as product warranty repair and end-of-life support to leading customers worldwide.
