Ryder Industries Ltd., a professional EMS provider, announces plans to add an extension to its Coastal I factory in Shenzhen, a coastal city bordering Hong Kong.
Currently, an increasing number of China-based manufacturers are moving inland to benefit from relatively lower labour costs than those of the coastal regions. To provide efficient high-volume production services, Ryder also has established its state-of-the-art inland factory in Jiangxi province (http://www.ryderems.com/new/news0912.html).
Yet unlike the majority of EMS providers, Ryder will sustain its coastal presence. This allows the company to provide a more convenient base for customers visiting from overseas as well as giving it access to the high-skilled human resources and cosmopolitanism of the eastern coast.
Ryder is expanding its Coastal I factory by 10,000sqm, with construction beginning in June 2013. The Coastal I factory, operational since 1992, will be equipped with a new office building, R&D centre, warehouse and accommodation.
Ryder strives to grow proactively and to provide a supportive working environment for its employees. These core values are embodied by the new building project: the R&D centre will provide timely and efficient engineering services and the warehouse will provide better inventory management for customers, while employees will benefit from comfortable, modern living space in the accommodations.
Markets are constantly evolving, and Ryder’s Coastal I expansion is focused on supporting high-mix products and other customer needs for flexibility. This project is scheduled for completion in September 2014.
