Fabrinet, incorporated on August 12, 1999, provides optical packaging and precision optical, electro-mechanical and electronic manufacturing services to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of products, such as optical communication components, modules and sub-systems, industrial lasers, medical devices and sensors. The Company offers a range of optical and electro-mechanical capabilities across the manufacturing process, including process design and engineering, supply chain management, manufacturing, complex printed circuit board assembly, advanced packaging, integration, final assembly and test. The Company's customer base includes companies in industries that require precision manufacturing capabilities, such as optical communications, industrial lasers, automotive, medical and sensors. Its customers in these industries support end-markets, including automotive, biotechnology, communications, materials processing, medical devices, metrology and semiconductor processing.
The Company manufactures products, which include optical communications devices, such as selective switching products, such as reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers (ROADMs), optical amplifiers, modulators and other optical components and modules that collectively enable network managers to route voice, video and data communications traffic through fiber optic cables at various wavelengths, speeds and over various distances; tunable lasers, transceivers and transponders; active optical cables providing high-speed interconnect capabilities for data centers and computing clusters, as well as Infiniband, Ethernet, fiber channel and optical backplane connectivity; solid state, diode, gas and fiber lasers (collectively referred to as industrial lasers) used across a range of industries, including semiconductor processing (wafer inspection, wafer dicing and wafer scribing), biotechnology and medical device (deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, flow cytometry, hematology and antibody detection), metrology (instrumentation, calibration and inspection), and material processing (metal, polymer, textile drilling and cutting, annealing, marking, engraving and welding), and sensors, including differential pressure, micro-gyro, fuel and other sensors that are used in automobiles, and non-contact temperature measurement sensors for the medical industry. The Company also designs and fabricates application-specific crystals, lenses, prisms, mirrors, laser components and substrates (collectively referred to as customized optics) and other custom and standard borosilicate, clear fused quartz, and synthetic fused silica glass products (collectively referred to as customized glass).
The Company offers integrated precision optical, electro-mechanical, and electronic manufacturing services and customized optics and glass fabrication services for its OEM customers. Its services include Process Design and Engineering, advanced Optical Packaging, and printed Circuit Board Assembly and Test. Printed circuit board assembly involves attaching electronic components, such as integrated circuits, capacitors, receivers, transceivers and other components and modules to printed circuit boards. Its fabrication facilities are located in Fuzhou, China and Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. The Company's customized glass and crystal optics products include Fiber Optic Ferrules and Alignment Sleeves, Fiber Optic Substrates, Precision Glass Tubing, and Precision Capillaries and Rods; Laser Optics, which include crystals, optics, high reflectivity mirrors, lenses, prisms and windows used in laser applications; Medical Optics, which include mirrors, lenses, filters, waveplates, windows and prisms incorporated into various medical equipment products; Storage Optics, which include mirrors, polarizing beam splitters (PBS) and waveplates incorporated into optical storage products; Surveying Optics, which include penta prisms, corner cubes and T-Windows incorporated into precision surveying products; Telecom Optics, which include lenses (such as spherical, a-spherical, C-lens and cylindrical), waveplates, mirrors, prisms, filters and yttrium orthovanadate (YVO4) crystals used for telecommunications applications, and Telecommunication Subassemblies, which include fiber pigtails (both single and dual), assemblies and collimators used in fiber optic components, such as isolators, circulators, optical switches and three-port filters.
The Company competes with Benchmark Electronics, Inc., Celestica Inc., Sanmina-SCI Corporation, Jabil Circuit, Inc., Venture Corporation Limited, Browave Corporation, Fujian Castech Crystals, Inc., Photop Technologies, Inc. and Research Electro-Optic, Inc.
