Nordic Semiconductor To Relocate Supply Chain HQ To The Philippines

Ultra-low
power RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor ASA will be setting up a regional
supply chain headquarters in Manila, the Philippines. This
will later be expanded to include a regional RF test-engineering group to
support local backend test development and subcontract partners in Asia.
    “As
our ultra-low power (ULP) 2.4GHz transceiver production volumes rise we
recognize a need to further tighten communication links with our supply chain
in Asia by creating a more local
organizational structure,” says Ole-Fredrik Morken, the Supply Chain
Manager at Nordic who is in charge of the relocation.
    The new
operation will be located within just a few miles of a Manila
facility of Nordic’s long-term test subcontractor, Amkor Technology, where
Nordic’s 2.4GHz ULP transceivers are tested on a base of permanently installed,
Nordic-owned test systems. With the completion of this relocation, Nordic will
now have its entire manufacturing and supply chain operations based in Asia,
bar only a few legacy products being produced in Europe.
Organizationally, however, everything else is to remain headquartered in Norway; including Nordic’s global sales and
marketing headquarters in Oslo, and its global
R&D and registered company headquarters in Trondheim.
    Nordic is
now looking to recruit two supply chain and production professionals locally in
Manila. Nordic
will also shortly be seeking to recruit several test engineers when it
establishes its new RF test group.
