FormFactor Inc. has opened its new wafer probe card manufacturing facility and global business center in Singapore. The new manufacturing capability is targeted to reduce product cycle times, and to diversify supply of the company's product components. FormFactor will also leverage the new site to support its global operations, and bolster its customer service and support infrastructure in the region. A celebration to mark the opening of the facility was held at the site on March 10, 2010.

To support the expansion, FormFactor expects to employ approximately 300 people in its first phase of growth over the next two years. Job growth will include design and manufacturing engineering, supply chain management, global finance positions, as well as other selected corporate and regional support functions. "With these new resources we take another step toward our goal to become a more local supplier," said FormFactor CEO, Mario Ruscev. "We see this expansion as an important milestone in our efforts to improve responsiveness in the region and to better serve all of our customers."

In addition to manufacturing and corporate functions, the company's SoC product business unit will also make its home in the new location.
