AEM posts 300 job openings in SG, Malaysia

Its new facilities will operate in the third quarter of 2022.

Electronics provider, AEM, will roll out over 300 more jobs as it will double its manufacturing space in research and development (R&D) centres in Singapore, US and Penang, Malaysia.

For its Penang facility, it will focus on delivering technologies and solutions for advanced, integrated semiconductor test needs. To support this, the facility will need more technicians, engineers, customer support group, and supply chain management.

Its expansion in the US will include R&D, prototyping, and manufacturing in Arizona and California, whilst the expansion in Singapore facility will zoom in on R&D.

“The ability to tap on a diverse talent pool and the high growth potential of Malaysia and Singapore is what makes the region an attractive location for AEM. Our expansion will allow us to better scale up our testing and handling capabilities in tandem with our customers’ needs. It also further solidifies AEM’s position as a hub in the region and its position as a critical node in the global semiconductor supply chain,” said Juha Arola, AEM’s Chief Operating Officer.

Malaysia is a crucial player and hub in the semiconductor global supply chain, which has over 7% of the total global semiconductor trade flowing through the nation. 

Moreover, the regional growth of the electrical & electronics sector is seen to be raised by 15% in 2022, which is propelled by strong global semiconductor sales that are expected to increase by 13.6% in 2022.
