Austria-based PCB producer AT&S has broken ground for its second plant in Nanjangud, India. Production will start ramping-up during Q3 09 and will focus on multilayer PCBs.

"This addition to capacity provides a basis to successfully carrying on with our continuous and sustainable expansion. The capacity of the existing factory is currently very well-utilized and customer demand for standard multilayer and double-sided PCBs is clearly increasing. The new plant enables to strengthen our leading position. Moreover, we actively provide the basis for future growth," highlights Harald Sommerer, CEO of AT&S, on the occasion of the ground breaking of the new Indian plant.

The investments for this project will amount to approximately 37 million euros ($57.3 million) from 2008-2010. Being located right next to the already existing plant, the new factory will technologically specialize in multilayer PCBs for automotive, medical and industrial applications.

In January 1999, AT&S Group started operating in India by acquiring the largest Indian PCB manufacturer, Indal Electronics. Along with its expansion into the Asian market, AT&S increased its Indian capacities and production volume was increased by 50 percent in 2003.
