StarChip opens office in Shanghai to support Smart Card IC business
StarChip is opening a new office in Shanghai, China, marking the start of a multi-phase plan to expand its operation and sales to China. The company acknowledges that one of the keys to global competitiveness and growth lies in the creation of a strong and flexible manufacturing network in China backed by StarChip local presence.
â€œExpanding our operation to have engineers based in Shanghai is the logical first step to sustain the growing activity with our manufacturing partners in Chinaâ€ , said Christian Dupuy, COO of StarChip. â€œWe are proud to have Mr. Keanwai Chan as Chief Representative of the Office. Mr. Chan has a successful track record of customer interface activities for several well-known Chinese Wafer Fabs. He will be in charge of managing both product engineering and quality control locally. StarChip will be able then to provide a clear structure and continuous quality of our products and services throughout the whole supply chain.â€
StarChip continues to expand its design and industrialisation capabilities to meet the growing demand driven by SIM and M2M controllers' success.
