NEW TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN – Arris agreed to sell its manufacturing facility here to Pegatron for an undisclosed sum. Production will transition to Pegatron's site in Suzhou, China, by the end of 2018.
The agreement enables Arris to leverage Pegatron's scale and investments in emerging technologies to further accelerate innovation and time to market, the firm says.
"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,” said Jim Brennan, senior vice president, supply chain, quality and operations, at Arris. “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."
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 tech hub for the company.
