Smith & Associates Expands Asian Presence With New Sales and Purchasing Office in Shanghai

Houston, Texas - Smith & Associates, the leading global semiconductor services company, today announced the opening of a rep office in Shanghai, China. The new office will leverage and augment Smith's global procurement and logistics network and will be closely tied to Smith's Hong Kong facility.

"Shanghai is the epicenter of the expanding electronics manufacturing industry in the People's Republic of China," said Leland Ackerley, executive vice president and co-founder of Smith & Associates. "By opening an office here, we are acknowledging the importance of China in our global sourcing network, and we are giving the many OEM and EMS providers in China greater access to our unique suite of technological, financial and logistical resources."

The Shanghai office operates through Smith's full-service quality assurance, testing and shipping facility in Hong Kong, allowing the office to focus solely on procurement assistance and customer service. The two offices are integrated into Smith's proprietary sourcing and logistics platform, which facilitates coordination and communication between Smith's nine global locations.
