MANAUS, BRAZIL--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2012) - Palladium Energy Brazil, a leading manufacturer of high-performance lithium-based battery packs, AC adapters for notebooks and PCB assembly (PCBA) in Manaus, announced today that it also is now manufacturing AC adapters for popular LCD/LED televisions as well as wireless local area network (WLAN) cards for portable electronic devices.
In a natural transition from manufacturing notebook AC adapters and completing PCBA, Palladium Brazil now delivers power supplies of 12 to 90W as well as Wi-Fi WLAN cards and combination WLAN cards with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth frequency to both global and local original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Specially trained employees, dedicated surface mount technology (SMT) lines and adherence to original design manufacturer specifications ensure speed to market for Palladium's customers. With two AC adapter lines and seven SMT lines, the state-of-the-art Manaus facility can meet any customer demand. These additions will not only help to fulfill local content needs, but also spur the economy in Brazil.
"As the world's sixth largest economy, Brazil represents massive opportunity for manufacturing and our Manaus facility's diverse capabilities in lithium-based battery packs, power supplies and WLAN cards for notebook computers, mobile phones and other portable electronic devices make it a valuable resource for local and global OEMs," said Renato Pantoja, vice president of business development South America, Palladium Energy.
The company's world-class Brazil facility provides a competitive advantage for companies with local operations by helping them comply with local content laws and regulations, and avoiding high tariffs and import costs. Palladium leaders are experts at doing business in Brazil, with more than 20 years of direct experience navigating the complex government, customs and other related Foreign Trade Zone rules and regulations. As a result, a significant amount of the company's business is done in Brazil.
"Our goal is to continue to invest in our Brazil business," stated Pantoja. "We will do this by investing in transformer technology in order to manufacture other new products including AC adapters for TV set-top boxes and point-of-sale devices down to 5W."
