Mobile phone equipment maker Nokia announced plans to expand its mobile device production in Dongguan, China in order to provide more capacity and flexibility to meet the growing market demand worldwide, especially in China and Asia.

According to Nokia, Dongguan is a strategic location for its global supply network for mobile devices. The company says increasing capacity in Dongguan will help to improve its competitive position in the fast-growing Chinese and Asian markets.

Nokia anticipates the factory expansion will begin production in the third quarter of 2006, and increase gradually, with the work force reaching approximately 1,900 employees when production is at full scale. The expanded production facilities will be located adjacent to Nokia's existing facility.

"Our already well-established presence in Dongguan made the decision to expand the manufacturing facility easy, said Raimo Puntala, senior vice president, Operations and Logistics for Nokia. "Dongguan is an elementary part of our global manufacturing network as a cost-efficient and well-functioning facility, and we believe that the expansion will further benefit our customers in the highly competitive and rapidly growing Chinese and Asian markets."

Nokia currently has nine mobile device factories globally. In addition, the Nokia Chennai plant in India is planned to be operational in the first half of 2006. Nokia has six research and development units, four manufacturing sites and widespread operations in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. The total number of Nokia employees in China area is nearly 6,000.
