Fri, Oct 22, 2021, 10:41 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 22, Colombo: The Danish headquartered EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Service) provider announced that it has broken ground on a new electronics factory in Sri Lanka.

Once completed in 1Q23, the factory will add a total of 11,300 square meters of production space to the company's Sri Lankan operations.

The electronics manufacturer has been planning the expansion for some years now but the pandemic put the plans on hold.

“It was a fantastic moment for us. We have planned this for some years now but have had to put the expansion plans on hold due to the coronavirus. Our new factory will be a state-of-the art facility fitted for electronics manufacturing with room to growth as well as room to develop cable-harness manufacturing. Our many employees also look forward to the upgraded functionality,” says Chandana Dissanayake, who has been with GPV for three years, since November 2020 as Managing Director for GPV Electronics LK.

The ground-breaking in Sri Lanka underlines that the ambitious growth plans for GPV are intact.

“With a clearer view of the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, we are now ready to resume the short and long-term capacity expansion, which will secure a good future foundation. A strong presence on the Asian continent is important for us. The expansion in Sri Lanka is the first step in our master plan to expand and thereby also make room for our continued growth. I am very proud of what we have accomplished due to our highly skilled people and the good and trustful partnerships with our valued customers,” said Bo Lybaek, CEO at GPV.

Lybaek emphasized the high focus on a safe building process; “Safety of our employees is key, and so is the safety of all involved in the construction of our new production facility in Sri Lanka. With ambitions to execute the building construction with zero LTIs, our local management has taken on a very ambitious goal,”

“GPV Electronics in Sri Lanka is fully certified within ISO 9001/14001/45001, and from here, we provide technology services, with special focus on our Swiss and German customers,” he added.

GPV Electronics LK employs around 1,000 people and specializes in high-mix, low-medium volume electronic production of box-build solutions, EMC (Electro-Magnetic Compatibility) and future cable-harness capabilities.
