Keytronic Starts Production at its New Da Nang, Vietnam Manufacturing Facility

Spokane, Washington, UNITED STATES

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Keytronic Corporation (Nasdaq KTCC), a world class provider of engineering design and electromechanical manufacturing services, today announced it has started shipping product from its new Da Nang, Vietnam manufacturing facility.

Keytronic’s Da Nang, Vietnam manufacturing facility is 133K square feet and currently has one SMT line and several final assembly lines. There is ample room to expand to 3 SMT lines and add multiple final assemble lines without any further construction. Keytronic completed this project within 8 months following site selection.

“I’m very proud of everyone who has been involved in getting our Da Nang facility up and running in such a short period of time,” said Craig Gates, President and CEO of Keytronic. “Our strategic decision to expand to Vietnam was initially fueled by the US-China trade war. However, we have received tremendous interest in the Vietnam facility both from customer’s who do have China tariff issues, and also from those that do not.”
