The global semiconductor market has long been dependent on Asia, but here are some of the major factors shaping chip manufacturing in Europe.
Rebound Electronics Expands Asia Footprint
Rebound has continued to expand its capabilities & resources across Asia throughout the pandemic. This latest investment is opening a new office in Taipei, Taiwan, on the 1st of November 2021.
Taiwan is a very attractive market, having a unique combination of factors contributing to it being one of the world’s most strategic markets.
Due to: scale/market size, the population’s extremely advanced utilisation of information technology, design & manufacturing base for many blue-chip global brands, many strong domestic companies, both OEM & EMS and home to the world’s largest fabrication companies.
Given the strategic importance of Taiwan, Rebound has not simply set up a trading office but invested further by forming a Taiwanese entity.
Stacy Liao, Sales Director, based in Taipei, is heading up the Taiwan operation. She brings a wealth of industry experience & has been with Rebound for two years. Over that time, she has gained a deep understanding of our capabilities.
Stacy added, “I understand the Taiwanese market, Rebound, and the industry”. “I have approved job requisitions to hire for several roles in both Sales & Purchasing. This gives clients & the team a clear message on the long-term commitment by Rebound to Taiwan.”
The Taiwan operation will leverage both the Rebound Asia & Global Infrastructure & Resources there-by enabling clients to benefit from a global supply base & world-class capabilities combined with a local presence. The optimum “Think global / act local combination“.
Grant Fairbairn MD Rebound Asia added: “We are still in the eye of the longest and deepest component supply shortage in the history of the industry. Customers are re-evaluating their supply chains, supply base, and logistic solutions to both keep production going today & in the future. Rebound Asia’s accelerated growth strategy is benefiting from both scenarios. We are and always will be 100% customer focused“.
