Lattice Semiconductor opens new operation centre at Asia

To move closer to its customers and supply chain partners

By CBR Staff Writer

Lattice Semiconductor opened a new Asia operations centre in Singapore, to move closer to its customers and supply chain partners.

The company said that the relocation of its warehousing and distribution facilities to Singapore is expected to save Lattice approximately $1m each year in shipping costs.

Lattice’s business in Asia accounted for 70% of its revenue in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to 35% just seven years ago. In addition, all of Lattice’s Wafer Fabs and Assembly & Test partners are in Asia.

Lattice said that the establishment of the Asia operations centre will result in the operational alignment of its supply chain, improved efficiency in working with the supply chain and an improved focus on cost reduction.

According to Lattice, the 421 square meter operations centre is opening with 17 employees and initially will manage production, packaging and test development, reliability and quality assurance for products throughout Asia. The operations centre is expected to expand within two to three years to approximately 40 employees.

Bruno Guilmart, president and CEO of Lattice, said: It just makes good business sense to move our Asia operations and warehouse closer to our critical supply chain activities and to our customers. The shorter we can make the distance between our products and our customers, the more responsively and efficiently we can serve them.
