ZAMA Precision Industry Manufacturing Philippines Inc., a unit of Germany’s ZAMA Group, is expanding its production capabilities in the Philippines by adding a 11,000-meter-square facility in Sto. Tomas, Batangas.
“Through this new facility, we will be able to amplify our efforts in producing electro-mechanicals technologies, wire harness and textile materials as well as explore other business ventures. This contributes more to the economy of the Philippines and also generates more employment,” said ZAMA Philippines president and managing director Ronald Wienholts.
The new $16-million facility is estimated to operate commercially by February 2024.
“We are honored to have attended such this important milestone. ZAMA has been a great example of how companies from Europe approach diversification of their business and to explore the China +1 strategy,” said German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. executive director Christopher Zimmer.
