Fabrinet will supply sourcing, procurement, assembly, test, and calibration services as part of the deal.

EFFECT Photonics says it has chosen contract manufacturer Fabrinet (NYSE: FN) to produce its integrated optical sub-assemblies. Fabrinet will supply sourcing, procurement, assembly, test, and calibration services as part of the deal.

The integrated optics and optical transceiver vendor believes that working with Fabrinet will enable the company to keep pace with shifts in requirements and demand. Fabrinet has engineering and manufacturing resources and facilities in Thailand, the U.S., the People’s Republic of China, Israel, and the UK. The companies didn’t reveal where EFFECT Photonics’ products will be manufactured; EFFECT is based in the Netherlands and recently opened an office in the area of Boston, MA (see “EFFECT Photonics positions new U.S. regional headquarters as platform for growth”).
