Flextronics International Ltd has signed an agreement with the Suzhou Wuzhong Economic Development Zone and Jiangsu Wuzhong Export Processing Zone for the development of a new facility in Wuzhong. The facility will support the growing demand for computing products in China and will include a design centre and extended manufacturing capabilities in the Wuzhong Export Processing Zone. The design centre is scheduled for completion by the end of 2009 and the manufacturing facility will be done by the end of 2010.

In addition to the present manufacturing facility in Wujiang, Suzhou, Flextronics currently also has computing design centres in Shanghai and Wujiang (Suzhou). Wuzhong will be positioned as the company's main development centre in China for computing products.

"Today's signing ceremony is an important event that allows Flextronics and Wuzhong government officials the opportunity to share the vision of this design centre and discuss its significance in supporting China's market growth for notebooks and desktop products," said Sean Burke, president, Flextronics Computing. "We are pleased to announce this expansion and believe that Wuzhong is an excellent location based on its world-class infrastructure, supply chain ecosystem and close proximity to Suzhou's Higher Education Center, which has a reputation for excellent education programmes and highly-skilled talent."
