The new site in Portugal is the tenth subsidiary of Fischer Connectors. Launched in 2021 and scheduled for completion in 2023, the new production facility will employ about 100 professionals in its first phase, who will create new capacities for assembling connectors and cable solutions. It will be possible to increase these capacities for up to 200 persons. In the project’s second phase the site could, depending on the group’s needs and development over the next 10 years, have the capacity to employ up to 400 persons.

 

The Portuguese plant aims at increasing Fischer Connectors’ manufacturing capacity, optimizing costs and leveraging two connector assembly production sites (Switzerland and Portugal) for a business continuity risk management purpose. Since the company’s foundation in 1954, the connector assembly production has been historically centralized within its Swiss manufacturing facility where its R&D center is also located. The new Portuguese connector assembly site is the first of its kind outside Switzerland, thus marking a new era of global expansion for Fischer Connectors’ operations.
