RFS Triples Base Station Antenna Production with Expansion of Shanghai Facility

Shanghai (China), December 17th, 2012 — Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, has expanded its manufacturing center in Shanghai with the opening of a new Base Station Antenna production facility that will better meet customer's demand in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. The new, 13,000 sq m facility enables RFS to more than triple its base station antenna production capacity and create up to 1000 new job opportunities in the area.

“This state-of-the-art facility will allow us to respond more quickly to the needs of our customers in China and other markets around the world for network upgrades and new infrastructures, including deployments of fourth generation Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks,” said Li Yong, CEO RFS Asia. “It will make it easier for us to reduce lead times for orders and maintain the high quality antenna manufacturing standards that our customers have come to expect from RFS.”

Inaugurated in early 2000, the RFS Shanghai manufacturing center is located in the Song Jiang Industrial Zone, approximately 30 kilometers south-west of central Shanghai. It is the company's major manufacturing and distribution facility in the region for its premium quality antenna systems, RF feeder cables and accessories. Since its initial opening, the manufacturing center has introduced new cable production lines and doubled cable output capacity to support RFS customers throughout the region. The company’s investments in China reflect its confidence in the region’s telecommunications market.

“We are committed to ongoing innovation and growth to meet the needs of our customers, not only with respect to antennas, but for all our products,” said Li Yong. “Throughout 2013, we will continue our efforts to establish RFS Shanghai at the leading edge of innovation and efficient performance for all our product lines, and new production lines we are planning for the manufacture of HYBRIFLEX™ feeder cables.”
