I got this press release from IKM. Interesting stuff, and it just shows how much they’re investing in mobile tech at the moment.
Here’s the release:
IK Multimedia is proud to announce the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Modena, Italy, the same city where the company’s headquarters is located.
The new facility is dedicated to the production and testing of IK Multimedia’s range of mobile accessories, and it includes highly automated lines for electronic components assembly, inspection and quality testing. Additionally, the Modena factory makes it possible for IK to further improve its outstanding quality record and the time-to-market for new products in its rapidly growing line of accessories and beyond.
IK’s emphasis on in-house production helps it stand out from the numerous companies in this sector that rely completely on third-party manufacturing.
The new facility will operate according to the strictest European regulations for safety and environmental impact, which is in accordance with the company’s mission to be both socially responsible and eco-friendly.
Modena, a highly entrepreneurial city in the North of Italy, and its surrounding area, is known for being the sports car capital of the world, and is home to factories for Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Ducati and more. The area is synonymous with high-quality, high-tech craftsmanship that is unmatched in the world. Beyond just automobiles, the region’s industries have long specialized in advanced electronics, precision mechanics and plastic molding. IK was able to tap into this rich business ecosystem when setting up manufacturing facilities for its high-tech line of accessories.
