On 5 November, engineered materials and optoelectronic component maker II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA is holding an inauguration ceremony (attended by corporate and regional executive leaders as well as a delegation of local municipal government officials) for its new II-VI Asia Regional Headquarters as the firm prepares to expand its manufacturing footprint in Fuzhou, China in order to meet increasing global demand.

II-VI says that, as carriers worldwide ramp up their investments in 5G wireless infrastructure and drive increased demand for innovative products that enable optical access architectures for next-generation wireless networks, it will add more than 300,000ft2 of space in two new buildings in Fuzhou to expand production of its 5G optical product portfolio.

“We are currently experiencing rapidly growing demand for II-VI’s differentiated and best-in-class optical technology that is enabling 5G optical access architectures across multiple deployments beginning in Korea, Japan and North America,” says Sunny Sun, president of II-VI Inc’s Photonics Segment. “II-VI is committed to a multi-year investment of up to $50m to expand our manufacturing operations,” he adds. “In Fuzhou, China we will establish our II-VI Asia Regional Headquarters in anticipation of the long-term growth driven by global deployments of next-generation wireless connectivity.”
