TTM Technologies’ largest manufacturing facility located in Science Park, Guangzhou, China, part of their mobility business unit, has achieved the status to be listed as a “Green Factory” by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China. Achieving this recognition required the manufacturing facility to pass an assessment review by independent third parties and related official organizations from the Chinese government.
“We are proud of our team for their outstanding effort in promoting environmental conservation and green practices,” said Brian Barber, chief operating officer of TTM Technologies. “TTM Technologies is committed to responsible environmental practices and this recognition further demonstrates our continued efforts to help protect the environment.”
“This is a major accomplishment by our team. The Green Factory certification requires a strict review of all aspects of green manufacturing. This designation demonstrates TTM Technologies’ commitment to achieve a balance between economic growth and environmentalism,” said C.W. Fong, president of TTM Technologies' mobility business unit.
