Littelfuse breaks ground on new power semiconductor assembly facility in Philippines

Littelfuse Inc of Chicago, IL, USA, which provides circuit protection technologies (including fuses, semiconductors, polymers, ceramics, relays and sensors), says that it recently broke ground on a new power semiconductor assembly plant in Lipa City – its third manufacturing facility in the Philippines – dedicated to assembly and test operations for power semiconductor modules.

The new, highly automated facility will increase the firm’s footprint in the Philippines by more than 60% and will add power semiconductor modules to the sensor and circuit protection technologies currently manufactured in the country. Once completed in 2021, the new plant expects to add more than 200 new jobs.

“Building on the IXYS acquisition and the high-performance power semiconductor products we added to our portfolio, the investment in this new, state-of-the-art facility in the Philippines will further expand our power semiconductor capabilities — a key driver of the Littelfuse growth strategy,” says Mike Rutz, senior VP & general manager, Littelfuse Semiconductor business unit. “Over the last two decades, our existing Philippines sites have developed a reputation for strong operational excellence and we will build on that foundation to deliver the highest-quality power semiconductor products and unmatched customer support.”

Littelfuse Philippines received the 2018 AME Excellence Award from the Association for Manufacturing Excellence. The AME Excellence Award primarily recognizes manufacturing plants that have demonstrated excellence in manufacturing and business, acknowledging continuous improvement, best practices, creativity and innovation.
