Alpha has recently opened a new, advanced manufacturing and training facility in Chennai, India. The building is an addition to their existing 16,000 sq mtr campus and will meet the growing needs of Alpha customers in the Indian sub-continent, Middle East and Africa. The new facility will have the capability to produce the vast ALPHA® prod-uct line including bar solder, cored wire, solder paste, wave solder flux and cleaners. This world-class facility will now also provide training capabilities to our customers to enhance our product offerings, in a number of industry segments, such as automotive, lighting, industrial electronics, mobile devices, power supplies and telecom.
In addition, the Chennai facility will manufacture product lines from Enthone, another Alent plc company focused on high performance specialty chemicals and coating. This move enables Enthone to expand customer technical support and technology innovation, while ensuring quick delivery of high performance functional and decorative coatings that provide wear and corrosion resistance to the automotive, building hardware, energy and electronics industries.
