Finland-based Scanfil, an international manufacturing partner and system supplier for the electronics sector, has expanded operations at its US factory in Atlanta, Georgia. The company has invested in an additional 6,000m2 production facility close to its existing site, increasing the factory’s overall manufacturing area by 50%. Production will begin in the second quarter of 2022.

Chief executive officer Petteri Jokitalo commented: “Customer demand increased significantly in 2021, and the US market is one of the fastest-growing in Scanfil’s market areas. To respond to the increasing demand, we kicked off this expansion project in Atlanta.”

The Atlanta factory assembles products for a range of industries including medtech, power electronics, refrigeration, the internet of things and solutions for payment cards. The facility also provides distribution and repair services.

Scanfil currently operates nine production units across China, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Poland, Sweden and the US.
