ADTEK Interview|Build optical device scale manufacturing base How does ADTEK "compete globally"?

  1/10/2023,China Fiber optic online news, the magic of 2022 has finally become a thing of the past. Some people say, 2022 business revenue decline is normal, can do flat has been quite good, to achieve growth in the company must be a symbol of super strength. Shenzhen ADTEK Technology Co., Ltd (hereinafter referred to as ADTEK), their 2022 still maintain growth, and the product line continues to expand, Stephen, our marketing director said: 2022 ADTEK achieve revenue growth of 40% year-on-year. Stephen, our marketing director, said that ADTEK’s revenue will grow by 40% in 2022.

Global layout to build a scale manufacturing base for optical devices

  Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Shenzhen, a vibrant special economic zone, ADTEK has four production bases in Xili, Shenzhen, Shenzhen-Shantou Cooperation Zone, Suqian, Jiangsu and Vietnam after 15 years of development, with a total production area of over 40,000 square meters, a staff size of nearly 1,000, and a revenue growth of over 30% for three consecutive years. The company was founded with the overseas market as the breakthrough, the product line continues to focus on fiber optic connectivity, for all kinds of brand users to provide a variety of scenarios required for optical connectivity products.

  2022 is an important year for ADTEK to further strengthen the foundation of optical connection, from 2021 to 2022, our three production bases in Shenzhen-Shantou Cooperation Zone, Suqian, Jiangsu and Vietnam will be put into operation at the same time; focus on introducing lean production and management, and further improve quality manufacturing and efficient management by upgrading the information ERP/MES system; further upgrade the test lab in accordance with GR326/ 1435 and other international highest standards to upgrade and improve the testing laboratory. In the future, the factory in Shenzhen-Shantou Cooperation Zone will mainly add new product lines, including the expansion of large core MTP product line, sheet metal product line, FTTH/FTTA products (including waterproof/long distance connectors) in 2022; the Vietnam factory will focus on radiating overseas customers, planning to set up at least 10 production lines, mainly for the production of high-density, multi-core MTP products and next-generation VSFF new products, expected to be completed in 2023. Completion.” Stephen said this when talking about the focus of the four production bases.

High-speed optical module in-connector kit further expands product line

  The commissioning of the three production bases provides the basic conditions for the expansion of ADTEK’s product line. In order to cope with the demand of higher density and higher speed connection,ADTEK starts to layout the connection components within the high-speed optical modules in 2022, including MT-MT, MT-FA, MT-Jumper and other series products, also to serve a broader market space and customer needs with a richer product line.

  Our domestic business will only account for 10% of our annual revenue in 2022, while the current manufacturing of high-speed optical modules is concentrated in China, and the increase in our micro-connector component product line is an important product line to serve our domestic customers and the basis for our expansion in the domestic market. Currently we have a monthly production capacity of 100,000 micro-connector assemblies, and products for 400G module applications are already being sent to customers for sampling, and products for 800G applications are already in the development stage.” Stephen revealed when he talked about the new product line and the layout of the domestic market.

   In recent years, with the rise of higher speed and higher density optical interconnect solutions, micro-connect products have become a hot spot in the market and the competition is fierce, what does ADTEK rely on to compete in the market? In terms of cost, ADTEK has experience in mass manufacturing, lean production and management, which can help customers to complete cost-effective product solutions; in terms of quality and performance, ADTEK has been serving global giant enterprises for more than ten years, and has been known for quality manufacturing, and in the optical module within the connection program, no matter how the rate of iteration, the overall design program is similar, Edeltek will combine the resources accumulated over the years. This year, ADTEK and USCONEC launched the world’s first MDC interface product solution applied to 100G SR4 QSFP28 optical modules. In the future, ADTEK will focus on seizing the opportunity of 400G era and evolve to the next generation 800G, 1.6T era. “At present, we are ready to be able to support single channel 50G+ transmission with laser cutting production capacity and high precision Fiber Array scale production capability, while our Vietnam factory is also looking forward to be closer to the overseas giants and more closely with the international giants’ innovative solutions and fast delivery, I firmly believe we can do better. ” Stephen mentioned the micro-connector product line with confidence.

    In addition to micro-connector products, our passive components optical splitter, optical wavelength division multiplexer also made greater progress this year, the future of micro-connector components, PLC, WDM products will be planned in the company’s optical components department, the company’s business horizontal development, to provide customers with more products and solutions. Stephen added to the editor.

  Looking ahead, how to further take the lead in breaking through to higher speed product solutions, ADTEK has also joined hands with Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Shenzhen University to set up a joint laboratory to develop optical connectivity products for the CPO and silicon optical era, including the next generation of new connectors PRIZM, MXC, MMC connectors. Since the project started one year ago, the products have made a big breakthrough, VSFF MDC, SN and other connectors have been mass-produced, and ADTEK has been in the forefront of leading the way in new technologies.

  From a large-scale optical connection manufacturing base to a global production base layout, and thus keeping pace with the global market. After 15 years of precipitation, ADTEK is still broadening its layout and will still strive to maintain growth. Competing for the global market, ADTEK is working hard step by step to achieve its set goals every year. Here, Fiber Optic Online wishes that in the new year, ADTEK will continue to sprint towards their set goals and achieve global optical connectivity mass manufacturing and sales.
