Scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017, the new facility will provide additional storage space and accommodate future high-volume production of computing, storage, networking, telecommunications, automotive, digital home, mobility, point of sale, printing, industrial and energy sectors. This expansion comes as Jabil marks its decade milestone in Vietnam and prepares for future growth.
“Since we began operations in Vietnam 10 years ago, we have been on a consistent growth trajectory. We are currently operating at maximum capacity and this expansion is central to our growth strategy,” said Vijay Chinnasami, SVP of electronic manufacturing services (EMS) operations at Jabil.
Jabil Vietnam currently employs approximately 4,500 employees and aims to create more than 3,000 new jobs in the local area over the next five years.
Jabil Vietnam specializes in high volume product solutions and serves the industrial and energy, networking and telecommunications, point of sale and printing sectors. The site has also received several “Best-In-Class” awards from respected companies in the telecommunications, point of sale, smart meter and set-top box industries.
