RFS Shanghai celebrates new site
Celebrations were in order when Radio Frequency Systems formally opened its new facilities in Shanghai, China. The opening ceremony on Friday 31 August marked the completion of a program of renewal and consolidation. Operations at a number of RFS sites across Shanghai have been transferred to a single state-of-the-art site in the suburb of Songjiang, 40km (25 miles) south-west of the city centre.
Declaring the new facility open, RFS CEO Asia Pacific North, Ivan Jensen, outlined the benefits of having all of RFS Shanghai’s operations located on a single site. “Fast communications between the different parts of our organisation, such as the R&D centre, RF manufacturing facilities and warehouse will now be easier,” he said. “This will enhance work flows and logistics, improve efficiencies and speed up all aspects of the business process.”
Jensen commented that the move by RFS to a single, modern facility would provide OEMs and wireless carriers with quicker service and faster access to recent technology innovations. “This will enhance RFS’s ability to meet the ever-growing demand for wireless communications in the region and beyond,” he said.
With a floor area of 6,000 square metres (65,000 square feet), the new RFS Shanghai site is large enough to accommodate several future expansions. “The new facility has been carefully planned to ensure that RFS can continue to grow in response to the industry it serves,” Jensen said. “The opening heralds the next phase of an exciting period of wireless development by RFS in China.”
