Bel Fuse has opened the new research and development center, located at its TRP Connector division in Changping, China.
Bel acquired TRP, formerly the Transpower magnetics business of TE Connectivity, on April 1, 2013.
“The TRP acquisition solidified Bel’s position as a world leader in integrated connector modules-ICMs. We intend to build on our already strong position in this important market. Accordingly, one of our first steps after acquiring the Changping facility was to increase our investment in R&D, with a major upgrade of the facility completed this month. By advancing our technology, improving our product development capabilities and shortening our response time, we expect our new R&D facility to make an important contribution to our strategy to increase Bel’s growth and profitability in both the short and long term,” said Daniel Bernstein, Bel’s President and CEO.
