ATX Group Establishes Its First Manufacturing Plant Outside China In Melaka, Malaysia

Batu Berendam, Melaka, Malaysia, 23 April 2024 – ATX Semiconductor Group, a worldwide well-known provider of Semiconductor assembly and test services, offering a full range of turnkey services that include package design, front-end engineering test, wafer test, package assembly and final test celebrated the opening of its new manufacturing plant in Free Trade Zone III, Batu Berendam, Melaka today. This plant, named as ATX Semiconductor (Melaka) Sdn. Bhd. is not only the first ATX Semiconductor plant in Malaysia, but is also the first ATX manufacturing plant outside China. ATX Group’s robust footprint in China, coupled with its pioneering packaging and test solutions, positions it strongly to capitalise on its capabilities as it expands to the new facility in Melaka.

The Company announced its investment of more than USD55 million (RM258 million) for its expansion in Melaka. The new facility has begun its manufacturing activities and will continue to expand its production capacity to better serve the customers in Malaysia and the surrounding regions. Massive operations are expected to commence in the first half of year 2026.

The event was attended by Melaka state government officials, government officials from the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), ATX customers and business partners along with ATX Group employees. The event started off with a keynote address by ATX Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) followed by an opening gimmick, refreshments, and a tour of the facility.

The establishment of the new manufacturing plant in Melaka underscores ATX’s strategic vision and commitment to global expansion. The new facility represents a substantial investment in cutting-edge technology, new packaging, and capacity expansion with a new manufacturing building to drive innovation and excellence in the semiconductor industry on an international scale.

With a legacy of collaboration and innovation extending more than three decades, ATX Melaka has forged partnerships with multinational leaders like Panasonic and UTAC Group. Leveraging a blend of Eastern and Western manufacturing best practices, including 5S, Kaizen, Toyota Way, and Change Management, ATX Melaka is poised to establish a strong presence among semiconductor players on a global scale.

En. Sikh Shamsul Ibrahim Sikh Abdul Majid, CEO of MIDA, warmly welcomed the new ATX Semiconductor facility in Melaka, pointing out its significant role in Malaysia’s economic and investment landscape. He said, “The launch of ATX Semiconductor’s facility here reflects our strong economic position and the diverse attractions that make Malaysia an ideal investment hub in the region. With strategic proximity to key markets, a rich culture, and a robust semiconductor ecosystem, Malaysia is well-positioned to attract a broad spectrum of international investors, including major Chinese corporations. This project will create over 2,000 jobs and strengthen our supply chains to meet the evolving needs of the E&E industry. The potential for investments in Malaysia is vast, and MIDA is eager to support ATX Semiconductor and others in tapping into these opportunities.”

Meanwhile, Mr. Chris Hsu, CEO of ATX Group, remarked, “ATX investment in Malaysia reinforces ATX’s commitment in expanding world-class semiconductor manufacturing capabilities.  The products and services ATX provide encompasses all industries including communication, automotive, consumer, industrial, high-performance computing and medical. ATX is strengthening the electronics supply chain for Malaysia and their customers worldwide.”

ATX now has six IATF16949 certified manufacturing facilities worldwide with more than 8,000 employees along its sales offices across US, Europe, Singapore, Japan, and China.  ATX Semiconductor (Melaka) Sdn. Bhd. plays a vital role among ATX customers. The factory will be producing wide range of semiconductor products from Small Outline Transistor (SOT) /Quad Flat No Lead (QFN) /Transistor Outline (TO) to Sensors.

This new investment will not only help boost Melaka’s state economy and employment opportunities, but also facilitate technology transfer and talent development between China and Malaysia. ATX Melaka strongly believes in corporate social responsibility and desires to make a positive impact on the environment and community, while being an employer of choice.
