AMAX, a leading manufacturer of dynamic Data Center & Cloud, custom Server Appliance and High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions, today announced the grand opening of its European manufacturing facility at Western Business Park in Shannon, Ireland.
The AMAX Ireland location will serve as the European manufacturing facility for AMAX’s x86-based server and rack solutions as well as a logistics hub, joining AMAX’s headquarters in Fremont, CA in the U.S. as well as its multiple China facilities to create a comprehensive global footprint.
“The Ireland facility significantly expands our ability, capacity and network throughout the EMEA region to meet the demands of our customers”
Jean Shih, President, AMAX
The facility will provide a hundred jobs over the next five years in production, warehousing, finance and sales in the local community. The development is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
The purpose of the AMAX Ireland facility is to better serve AMAX’s European and global enterprise customer base with local manufacturing to produce expedited production and logistics turnaround. The facility was designed to parallel AMAX’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and production lines in its Silicon Valley headquarters, and will feature the same level of industry-leading engineering and automation, as well as the same comprehensive test processes to achieve the highest standard of quality.
