Rakon's manufacturing facility in Chengdu opened in July 2011. The 12,000 m² facility was established to supplement manufacturing from New Zealand and support the very high volume crystal and TCXO market.
As a result of Rakon's divestment in the Smart Wireless Device (SWD) business, Rakon sold its majority stake in Rakon Crystal (Chengdu) Co. Ltd (RCC) to ECEC in October 2013. Rakon retains a minority shareholding (10%) in the renamed entity ECEC Rakon Crystal (Chengdu) Co. Ltd. (ERC).
Today the ERC factory in Chengdu, is a strategic supplier to Rakon for its higher volume crystal and TCXO supply.
