Smartrac enhances industrial focus and ramps up global production capacity
Smartrac Technology Group (Amsterdam, The Netherlands), a leader in RFID products and IoT solutions, recently announced a significant increase in its manufacturing capacity and the implementation of concrete measures to reinforce the company’s focus on global industrial applications.
Smartrac runs some of the most comprehensive, innovative manufacturing sites within the RFID industry, with state-of-the-art factories across APAC, EMEA and the America’s region. Those factories, development and distribution centres now jointly account for a production capacity of more than 3.5bn RFID inlays and tags per year.
Recently, the company moved to an entirely new location in Guangzhou, China, doubling floor space, adding the latest technologies and machinery as well as increasing the number of employees on site, which has led to a major increase in production capacity of more than 30%. Moreover, Smartrac has also increased capacity in its Kulim facility, Malaysia, as well as further augmented its workload and production lines, with an enhanced focus on hard tags and sensor tags.
The company’s facility in Reichshof-Wehnrath, Germany, will also increase its product development and production capabilities, to support the production of specialized batches for customized RFID products with a focus on hard tags and glass tags. Smartrac’s factory in Fletcher, USA, has also gone through a major refurbishment and added the latest technologies over recent months, and it remains the only large-scale, high-volume RFID inlay and tag production and customisation centre in the United States.
In addition, Smartrac has further optimised its business focus on hard and sensor tags by unifying product development and facilities for an increasing global customer demand in areas such as automotive, aviation, animal ID, cold chain, pharma and healthcare and many more. All these measures are intended to further strengthen Smartrac's position as a leading provider of customised RFID inlays and tags, including hard and sensor tags, for a wide range of cross-industry customers and applications.
