This new SMT placement line increases the manufacturer’s capability in Scotland.

The equipment will be populating 01005 components, fine pitch CSP devices and deliver package-on-package technology.

“This investment comes less than 12 months after the substantial expansion of Plexus’ UK manufacturing facilities and it is demand that has driven this decision to invest further our capabilities in the UK,” said Frank Zycinski, vice-president operations EMEA at Plexus.

This completes the refresh of all of SMT equipment across the two Plexus manufacturing sites in the UK.

Last year, the company expanded its UK design and manufacturing operations in Livingston with a £9m investment.
