IXYS' New Factory in Philippines by GD Rectifiers


IXYS’ New Factory

Littelfuse has opened its new power semiconductor assembly plant in Lipa City, Philippines. This is the company’s third manufacturing facility in the Philippines and is dedicated to assembly and test operations for power semiconductor modules.

The highly automated assembly plant has increased the company’s footprint in the Philippines by more than 60 percent and has added power semiconductor modules to the sensor and circuit protection technologies currently manufactured in the Philippines. The new factory has also created more than 200 jobs.

The new assembly plant follows the acquisition of world-leading high power semiconductor manufacturer, IXYS in 2018.

“Building on the IXYS acquisition and the high-performance power semiconductor products we added to our portfolio, the investment in this new, state-of-the-art facility in the Philippines will further expand our power semiconductor capabilities – a key driver of the Littelfuse growth strategy,” said Mike Rutz, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Littelfuse Semiconductor Business Unit.

“Over the last two decades, our existing Philippines sites have developed a reputation for strong operational excellence and we will build on that foundation to deliver the highest quality power semiconductor products and unmatched customer support.”
