said it would move some assembly operations from Anaheim and Suzhou, China, to a new plant in Malaysia.
M-Flex, which fabricates flex circuits and does some contract assembly, is leasing the plant from WBL Corp.
, its largest shareholder. More than 125 employees from Wearnes Electronics Malaysia
, a WBL subsidiary, will move to the new facility.
The location will take over a high-mix/low-volume operation that deals with low production runs of many different models.
