Leoben 

Strategic Management Decisions
11.07.2019

Leoben - AT&S, the leading manufacturer of high-end printed circuit boards,
continues to expand its business with IC substrates as a strategic pillar. Due
to rising market demand for high-performance computing, the company intends to
build a new plant at the location in Chongqing and to expand the existing
capacities at the Leoben plant. To this end, an investment volume totalling
nearly one billion Euro with a focus on Chongqing is planned for the next five
years. These investment projects are also based on close cooperation with a
leading producer of semiconductors.

Increasingly connected digital systems, systems using artificial intelligence,
robotics or autonomous driving require ever faster processing of ever increasing
data volumes. As a result, the required computing power and data storage needs
are growing significantly. The required performance of future high-performance
computing modules massively drives the technological demands on all components
of the modules including IC substrates.

With these investments, AT&S pursues the goal of sustainable, profitable growth
while at the same time expanding its market position for IC substrates. AT&S
will participate in the growing market for IC substrates based on these
investments. The business with IC substrates is becoming a strategically
important business mainstay for AT&S in addition to high-end printed circuit
boards.

The new, state-of-the-art factory is intended to be built at the existing
location in Chongqing. Construction work begins immediately and the start of
production is planned for the end of 2021.
