Optical coating and component developer Optics Balzers AG has opened a production facility in Penang, Malaysia, with 30 new employees.

 “There have been various inquiries about high-quantity production projects from potential customers in Asia, and these resulted in actual orders very quickly,” said Alex Vogt, CEO of Optics Balzers.

Machinery was installed in August, and processes are currently being certified in accordance with the established quality standards.
“The new production site enables us to exploit the market opportunities immediately and helps us to purposefully expand our market shares in Asia with new customer projects and new products,” Vogt said.

The official facility opening included a speech by the Chief Minister of Penang, Lim Guan Eng, who is the head of government of the Malaysian state of Penang. Vogt and his team provided guided tours of the production facilities and presented products in the showroom. A reception and traditional dragon dance concluded the festivities.
