UCT finds perfect base for Asian operations

Jan 10, 2015


UCT Senior Vice President for Asia Lavi Lev

Ultra Clean Technology, an award-winning contract manufacturing solutions provider from California, established its Asian headquarters in Singapore more than five years ago to follow the lead of long-time customers in the semiconductor industry.

“The Singapore operation is very significant to our company as a whole. It is our Asia headquarters and drives all of our activities in the region, aside from being a key manufacturing site for the company,” explained UCT Senior Vice President for Asia Lavi Lev.

“We greatly benefit from the stable and efficient business environment in the country, the highly skilled workforce available to us, and the government’s keen interest in taking the country to the next level of manufacturing,” he added.

Lev believes UCT gained its competitive advantage because of its ability to excel in quality manufacturing of high value products. These products require the ability to anticipate the demand for new technologies and apply them for the benefits of the world most demanding customers.

Amid rising demand for the latest state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, UCT recently opened its Additive Manufacturing Center in Singapore. The center, the largest and most comprehensive site in South East Asia, is geared to providing 3D printing technologies and products to customers around the world.

“Singapore is leading the pack in research and development of Additive Manufacturing technologies. By establishing our center here, UCT expands its offering to its customer and deepen its relationship with the local R&D centers and Universities” said Lev.

UCT is encouraging companies in the United States to consider Singapore as business location because the city-state has built a global reputation for its central location, efficiency, stability, high quality manufacturing, and uncompromising business practices.
