SINGAPORE -- UTAC Holdings Ltd (UTAC), a leading semiconductor testing and assembly services provider headquartered in Singapore, today announced the opening of a sales office in Nagaokakyo City, Kyoto, Japan. This is a strategic move to support existing and new customers, and to expand its business in one of the largest automotive and consumer electronics semiconductor markets in Asia.
The opening of the UTAC Nagaokakyo office follows the firm establishment of the partnership with Panasonic in June this year which includes the acquisition of three Panasonic testing and assembly facilities in Southeast Asia.

The three facilities in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia in addition to existing UTAC facilities in Thailand, Singapore, China and Taiwan enable UTAC to offer a wide range of test and assembly services and geographical locations to customers in Japan.
