Business unit of Tyco Int. Ltd, Tyco Electronics, has begun manufacturing electronic components at Flextronics Int. Ltd's industrial park in Doumen, China.

As part of the agreement, the company will lease manufacturing space from Flextronics and will manufacture a variety of components, including connectors, cables and battery packs. Tyco Electronics currently manufactures battery packs, under a similar arrangement at Flextronics' industrial park in Hungary.

"The fit is natural. Once customers visit the park and see both component manufacturing and final assembly taking place in one location, they will recognize the advantages created by shortening the supply chain," said Michael E. Marks, chairman and CEO of Flextronics.

Additionally, Flextronics has selected Tyco Electronics as a primary supplier for a range of electronic components and sub-assemblies. Among the products to be supplied are connectors, cable assemblies, relays, circuit protection devices, power and thermal management systems, magnetics, and labels.
