New production site in Korea

On 3 November, Plansee Korea opened a new plant. The factory is located close to big customers in the industrial park Dongtan, in the South of the capital Seoul.

The plant is an important part of the international production network of Plansee High Performance Materials. Here, coating and other high-performance materials are manufactured for the electronics and semiconductor industry.

20 years ago, Plansee opened a sales office in Korea. In 2011 the bonding specialist TCB was taken over and integrated. "And from now on, we are manufacturing in a real plansee factory", said Bernhard Schretter. Schretter described Korea as a "challenging market", where it is necessary to be competitive with locally produced products, to offer top service and to constantly develop innovative products.
