Finisar opens production plant in Wuxi, China

Fiber-optic communications component and subsystem maker Finisar, of Sunnyvale, CA, USA recently held a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new production facility in Wuxi, China, attended by government officials, executive management, and local employees.

Located in Jiangsu Province about an hour from Finisar’s Shanghai plant, the land provides 550,000 square feet of open space and will house two new multi-level buildings. The first is now open and the second will begin construction by the end of 2013. This facility will focus primarily on manufacturing tunable and parallel transceivers, wavelength-selective switch (WSS) modules, reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) line-cards, passive components, and high-end optical subassemblies used in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) and detectors.

“As the demand for high-speed optical products continues, our new Wuxi facility will add much needed manufacturing capacity in China,” said executive chairman Jerry S. Rawls. “Finisar will continue to invest in the infrastructure required to give our customers critical access to products as market demands increase,” he added

“The addition of the Finisar Wuxi plant is a great example of our worldwide manufacturing strategy, which supports continually increasing levels of high-volume production along with competitive production costs,” said Joe Young, executive VP of global operations. “We are confident that the Wuxi facility will match the quality and performance of other Finisar plants around the globe.”

Finisar says that it is one of just a few optics firms to operate its own manufacturing sites, allowing it to quickly ramp up volumes and shift production from one product to another as needed. Finisar Wuxi joins Finisar manufacturing sites in Ipoh, Malaysia; Shanghai, China; Fremont, California; Allen, Texas; and Jarfalla, Sweden.
