ARRIS International has announced an agreement with long-time partner Pegatron Corporation for the sale of ARRIS’s manufacturing facility in New Taipei City, Taiwan. Production of ARRIS customer premises equipment will transition to Pegatron’s Suzhou site in China by the end of 2018. ARRIS will continue to maintain technology development and business operations in Taiwan, including its newly acquired Ruckus operations. ARRIS’s Taiwan Technology Center will be a major tech hub for the company.
This agreement enables ARRIS to leverage Pegatron’s scale and investments in emerging technologies to further accelerate innovation and time to market.
“ARRIS’s global vision is to leverage scale across a key number of global partners that allow us to concentrate on R&D, as well as anticipate the needs and expectations of our customers and their subscribers. Pegatron is a long-term, trusted manufacturing partner of ARRIS, with a proven track-record of quality and performance, and we expect the transition to be seamless for our customers,” said Jim Brennan, ARRIS SVP, Supply Chain, Quality & Operations.
“Today’s transaction builds on a successful 15-year relationship with ARRIS, during which we have helped them to deliver a range of major innovations to the global marketplace. Pegatron is proud to produce cost-effective, high-quality products; we look forward to continuing our joint success with ARRIS long into the future,” said Syh-Jang Liao, President and CEO, Pegatron.
