A company that says it’s on a mission to “provide innovative, clean, and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow” will soon be developing some of that tech in North Texas.
Taiwan-based Delta Electronics, a publicly traded electronics manufacturer for a myriad of industries, is building out its existing Plano presence with the purchase of a 30-acre plot of land. The acreage is set to become a hub for Delta’s research, development, and manufacturing efforts.
“The Plano complex exemplifies Delta’s deeper commitment to the development of a resilient supply chain while also expanding our footprint in the U.S.,” said Kelvin Huang, president of Delta Electronics Americas region (above), in a statement.
‘Aiming to generate a great number of jobs’
Providing a range of smart energy-focused software and hardware solutions in areas like data center infrastructure, industrial and building automation, and telecom power, the U.S. subsidiary of the global firm said the new facility will help it expand its product offerings in “key areas.” They include automotive powertrains, 5G networks solutions, and energy infrastructure for smart cities. The range of technological options that will be available at the new facility will help speed Delta’s time in getting products to market, the company added.
The new facility will add to Delta’s current Plano operations, which include offices near the Plano-Richardson border. When fully built out, the new complex will house more than 400,000 square feet of space. Noting the region’s talent pool as a factor for opening the new facility in DFW, Delta said it plans to invest “substantial resources” in partnerships with local universities and colleges, with the goal of creating “hundreds” of new jobs.
“We expect this new site to operate 100% on renewable electricity by 2030,” Huang said. “Delta is a company deeply rooted in innovation, and we will develop cutting-edge technologies in our new facility while aiming to generate a great number of jobs for talented Americans in the Southwest.”
Plano facility boosts Delta’s global presence
Based in Taipei and founded more than half a century ago, Delta Electronics trades on the Taiwan Stock Exchange and is a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices. The company opened its U.S. operations, which are headquartered in Fremont, California, in 1980. It now operates nearly 200 sales offices, R&D centers, and manufacturing facilities across five continents, reporting $11.27 billion in global sales revenue last year.
Delta says it typically re-invests 8% of its sales revenues toward its R&D efforts.
“In response to the challenge of climate change, Delta will remain committed to the research and development of innovative, energy-saving products, solutions and services that contribute substantially to the sustainable development of mankind,” the company states on its website.
