ST. PAUL, MN December 19, 2007
In 2002, Ergotron embarked on a mission to develop a world-class manufacturing facility dedicated to producing high-quality products in Dongguan, China, a country considered to be the world’s largest manufacturing resource. For five years, Ergotron has had a successful relationship with Min-Aik Technology Co. Ltd., of Taiwan, its joint-venture manufacturing partner for the Dongguan facility. In Ergotron’s continuing effort to establish first-class manufacturing operations, the company announced it has assumed sole ownership of the China operation.
The manufacturing facility will now operate under the name Dongguan Ergotron Precision Technology Company, Ltd.
This ownership structure enables Ergotron to strengthen its operational efficiency and competitiveness in the global marketplace. The facility in Dongguan is dedicated to the design, manufacture and test of Ergotron-branded products, as well as custom OEM products for the world’s leading technology companies. With the Dongguan facility staffed and overseen by an international team of senior management, Ergotron has greatly accelerated its ability to address and serve the Chinese marketplace.
“We are committed to providing the highest quality products at a reasonable cost to our customers,” explained Dan Miller, Senior Vice President of Operations for Ergotron. “Ownership of the factory gives us the opportunity to further enforce our best practice operations on a global basis, confirming our commitment to quality and safety.”
Ergotron products undergo a testing regimen that is unmatched in the industry. The China facility follows stringent test guidelines from in-process to 100% end-of-line functional test of each unit. The facility houses a full test lab which utilizes robotic cycle testers and is complete with onsite “Restriction of Hazardous Substances” (RoHS) test capabilities, ensuring top quality and safety for every product.
Dongguan Ergotron Precision Technology Company, Ltd, is a leading employer in the Dongguan area, working closely with the local government on environmental and employee care initiatives. The Dongguan operation—through the commitment of the employees—has helped Ergotron become the industry leader in digital display mounting and mobility products.
“I represent the Ju Zhou government as we share in this joyful occasion with Ergotron,” said Director Huang Jia Zia, JuZhou Shijie Town, Dongguan City. “We will continue to support Ergotron as the company continues its innovative approach of dominating the market with good quality products. This represents much future success for Ergotron.”
