The acquisition of Tohoku Solutions marks a milestone for SVI, as it significantly expands the vertical capabilities of the company, complementing the existing solutions in cable assembly, PCBA and box-build solutions – and allowing our customers to have a 1-stop solution for their electronics manufacturing requirements. With the ideal location close to SVI’s current operations in Bangkok, Tohoku Solutions and SVI will, together, have the ability to offer a seamlessly integrated and competitive solution in South East Asia for customers worldwide.
