ANSEONG, SOUTH KOREA — Mirtec has completed an 15,250 sq. ft. expansion to its manufacturing facility here, raising the AOI firm's annual capacity by 150%.

The site's total square footage is now more than 64,075 sq. ft. and will support a total production capacity of approximately 2,500 units per year, the company said.

“Mirtec has experienced impressive growth over the last several years,” said Chanwha Pak, chief executive, in a press release. “Since the grand opening of our Anseong manufacturing facility in 2008, we have seen our production volume triple from 350 units per year to a forecasted volume of more than 1,000 units by end of 2012.  This expansion ensures our ability to keep up with growing demand for our products and services.”

“The fact is that we were simply running out of room,” said Brian D’Amico, president of Mirtec’s North American Sales and Service Division. “This additional manufacturing area will allow us to quickly ramp-up production to meet growing demand for our products while delivering the high level of quality and customer service to which Mirtec is committed.”
