WeEn Semiconductors (UK) Ltd., are pleased to announce the launch of their new Stockport town centre office following a relocation from Hazel Grove.

Their base which is now in Orbit Developments’ Beckwith House provides the company’s Research and Development team in England with their own dedicated premises. This base also doubles as WeEn’s European headquarters linking staff in Italy, Holland, Germany and Turkey.

WeEn has sales offices and customer service access throughout the world, with their main business operational headquarters located in Shanghai, China. The company also has a manufacturing plant in Jilin, north east China, a distribution warehouse in Hong Kong and a state-of-the-art Reliability and Analysis Laboratory in Nanchang, China.

With a heritage of over 50 years, WeEn is a key player in the semiconductor industry and has focused on developing a wide and deep portfolio of industry-leading bipolar power products. All these products are widely used in the markets for telecommunications, computers, consumer electronics, intelligent home appliances, lighting, automotive and power management applications.

Their aim is to help their customers achieve lower cost and production efficiency, and to contribute to the development of intelligent-manufacturing in China and around the world.

The launch, which took place on Wednesday 30th October, was attended by the Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Laura Booth and the Mayoress of Stockport, Mrs Lynne Glover, as well as WeEn CEO Markus Mosen from Hamburg, WeEn CTO Ed Huang based in Stockport, Rhys Owen, Leasing Director at Orbit and several R&D and Marketing staff from the U.K. and The Netherlands.

Ed Huang Chief Technology Officer of WeEn commented: “The team at WeEn were keen to remain in the borough and to benefit from more local amenities with scope to make better use of the public transport links afforded to the town centre.

Manchester University, Manchester city centre, Manchester Airport links and National Rail Links are also very important, given the international and highly specialised nature of the business. Added bonuses are the lovely views we now see across Stockport with the Pennines in the distance!”

Leasing Surveyor for Orbit Developments Rhys Owen said: “I was delighted to attend the official launch and to welcome WeEn to Beckwith House – we wish them the very best of luck for the future”.
