R&S Signs Agreement with Benchmark Electronics to Increase its Production Capacity

Rohde & Schwarz has signed a strategic agreement with Benchmark Electronics, to enhance its manufacturing capacities. The partnership enables Rohde & Schwarz to quickly and reliably meet the growing demand for its products. Benchmark’s ability to solve complex technical challenges coupled with extensive supply chain capabilities are a perfect match for Rohde & Schwarz’s requirements.

Rohde & Schwarz needs additional production capacity in order to be able to continue its growth of recent years. Since the German plants in Teisnach, Memmingen and the plant in the Czech town of Vimperk are working at full capacity, the technology group has been looking for an external solution. Expanding on the long-term relationship with Benchmark, Rohde & Schwarz made the decision after an extensive evaluation of electronic manufacturing services (EMS) companies. 

In future, it will remain important to supply customers quickly and reliably. Since its founding, Rohde & Schwarz has benefited from the close proximity of development and production. Benchmark’s locations across the Americas, Europe, and Asia will provide Rohde & Schwarz with localized and global supply chain sources coupled with a customer-focused team committed to quality, optimized costs, and manufacturing for their high technology solutions.
