TriQuint opens International Headquarters in Singapore

RF front-end component maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA has officially opened TriQuint International Pte Ltd, its new International Headquarters at the Changi Business Park, close to the Changi International Airport in Singapore, which will be the focal point for most international customers, suppliers and manufacturing partners. The new office will offer dedicated resources in a wide variety of areas, ranging from customer service to supply chain management.

TriQuint has just recorded its sixth consecutive year of record revenue, driven largely by the proliferation of smartphones, tablets and the emergence of 3G/4G broadband wireless. With business outside the USA now contributing about 70% of annual revenue, customers in Asia drove a big part of this growth, while manufacturing partners in Asia assembled and tested almost all of the high-volume TriQuint-designed products sold into these applications.

“With Asia’s appetite for new technologies, particularly in mobile devices, and government support of the latest communications infrastructure, we believe Asia will continue to offer great opportunities for business growth,” says president & CEO Ralph Quinsey. “It is with that long-term view that we further globalize our business, in order to strengthen our relationships with international customers and drive greater efficiencies across our supply chain,” he adds.

“We have solid plans to grow our share in the mobile device and network communications markets in Asia and Europe,” says Glen Riley, VP & managing director, TriQuint International Pte Ltd. “Singapore is a great location to recruit and develop experienced talent, given the number of multi-national semiconductor companies already located here,” he adds. “Over time we also plan to work on technology innovations and new product designs out of Singapore, through close collaboration with international customers,” Riley continues.

“The headquarters is testimony to Singapore’s competitiveness as a preferred location for companies to gain supply chain efficiencies,” says Chong Joon Woon, director of the Electronics Economic Development Board of Singapore.
