Music Group to Build $50 Million Chinese Facility
Music Group founder and CEO Uli Behringer recently announced the company’s plans to construct a new campus that will house its operations in China. Modeled on the corporate campus typical of Silicon Valley, the sprawling 50-acre complex will include R&D, manufacturing, a Residential Village, and abundant green space cultivated around the site’s natural wetlands and is to be completed by 2014.
The new campus in the industrial province of Guangdong will be home to nearly 5,000 employees and is to include over three million square feet of automated factory space housing over 100 surface-mount machines, automated transducer lines, injection molding and hydro forming facilities, and a total “clean-air” wood products and painting pavilion. The company’s already extensive agency test labs will be expanded with additional RF and TDMA facilities and an all-new two-story anechoic chamber will be built for acoustical testing. The campus will also offer housing for almost two thousand company employees and include on-site educational, child-care and health facilities.
