NOTE signs a co-operation agreement with Chalmers

NOTE, one of Scandinavia’s leading contract manufactures of electronics, signed a co-operation agreement today with Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. Together with Chalmers, NOTE will set up a NOTE Lab located at Chalmers in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The NOTE Lab at Chalmers will support both research and industry in realising products that contain advanced packaging structures. Through this co-operation, NOTE and Chalmers will be able to offer the market everything from research to full-scale production. Anders Andersson, MD, NOTE Borås, will be responsible for the NOTE Lab at Chalmers. The responsible contact at Chalmers is Professor Johan Liu.

Through this co-operation, NOTE is being offered through Chalmers the possibility of establishing contacts in Shanghai for the purposes of starting up a Gateway there.

”This co-operation is very stimulating,” says Erik Stenfors, President and CEO, NOTE. ”The trend in our industry is clear: to remain competitive we must be able to offer cutting edge technology and through Chalmers we have now acquired an extremely competent partner."

”With the competence that exists in the research groups within Electronics Production at Chalmers, and our production that is closely allied to industry, we will be able to manufacture very advanced prototypes. The lab has strengthened NOTE’s presence in the Gothenburg area and we will be able to offer proximity and fast prototype production in combination with a bigger factory in Borås. Previous establishments of labs have shown that this is something that our customers appreciate very much,” says Anders Andersson, MD for NOTE Borås.

”NOTE is an excellent and competent partner with whom to co-operate, and we see big future opportunities in this co-operation,” says Johan Liu, Professor in Electronics Production, at Chalmers.
