Reading time ( words)

UniPixel, Inc., a provider of Performance Engineered Films to the touch screen and flexible printed electronics markets, announced today that it will relocate its corporate headquarters from The Woodlands, Texas to Santa Clara, California, in the Silicon Valley region. Additionally, the company has established a sales office in Taiwan to support customers and partners throughout Asia.

Jeffrey A. Hawthorne, chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, "As we begin concentrating our sales and marketing efforts on driving revenue expansion, it makes sense for a technologically advanced company such as UniPixel to base its headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley. There is unique technology infrastructure and expertise in this region that we believe is unmatched anywhere in the world. I believe that UniPixel will benefit from this infrastructure and the talent that it attracts as we move forward in executing our strategic business plan."

Mr. Hawthorne continued, "In April 2015 the Company acquired a touchscreen technology, a manufacturing facility, and customer relationships from Atmel Corporation. We believe that the acquisition of these assets will validate our technology and manufacturing processes. Leveraging the infrastructure of the acquired engineering and marketing teams, which were already based in Silicon Valley, was a logical step as we continue building our business. Furthermore, our new Taiwan sales office provides a base from which to support current and future customers and supply chain partners throughout Asia."

All manufacturing operations will remain in Colorado Springs, and the Company will maintain an engineering laboratory currently located in The Woodlands, Texas staffed with talented technical employees. 

The Company's new corporate headquarters will be located at 4699 Old Ironsides Drive, Santa Clara, California, and its new Taiwan office will be located at 7F, No.46, Wenhua 2nd Rd, Guishan Dist, Taoyuan City, 33377, Taiwan.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
