RFMD opens customer support center in Shanghai

RFIC and module maker RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA has opened its new customer support center in Shanghai, its fourth location in the Greater China region.

The center will expand RFMD’s capacity to serve wireless customers throughout the Far East by expanding and complementing its sales and support centers in Shenzhen and Taiwan, and its module assembly facility and test and tape & reel facility in Beijing. RFMD employs more than 900 people in the Greater China area.

The facility, which houses technical sales, sales management, application support and customer support, will enable RFMD to better serve regional manufacturers, who are increasingly developing leading-edge handset technology for the world’s largest cell phone providers, the company says.

“This new location will expand and strengthen our technical and systems support, while helping to advance the integration of complementary radio functions and applications in cellular handset designs,” says Greg Thompson, vice president of worldwide sales and applications.
