Adata looks to manufacture locally

Monday, February 21, 2011

Taiwanese memory solutions provider Adata is preparing to open an office and manufacture products in Brazil, the company announced without providing a specific timeline or a location for the factory.

"The expansion of local production in Brazil will have an enormous impact in making Adata more competitive, thanks to the incentives provided by the government of Brazil that favor companies that contribute to local industry," according to the release.

In the first phase, Adata will locally manufacture DDR3 memory modules. Longer-term plans include incorporating other product lines such as hard drives, power supply and Flash storage devices.

Adata has its Latin America headquarters in Miami, Florida, and a subsidiary in Mexico City to attend to the local market there. The move to open a Brazil office is in response to "excellent results" in South America in the last three years, the company said. Besides serving Brazil, the new office will also improve logistics and service to distributors in the Southern Cone.

The company provides memory solutions including DRAM modules, USB Flash drives, memory cards, solid-state drives and portable hard drives.
