The new chip test centre will create up to 400 jobs by the mid-2030s
Robert Bosch, the German technology group, announced on Tuesday that it has opened a new chip test centre for chips and sensors in Malaysia for 65 million euros ($71.62 million) and plans to invest a further 285 million euros by the middle of the next decade.
The company added that up to 400 jobs will be created by the mid-2030s.
From its factories in the German cities of Reutlingen, Germany, Suzhou, China, and Hungary, Bosch currently carries out most of the final testing of its semiconductors.
Those locations will be joined by the new chip test centre in Penang, for which Bosch is receiving funding from Malaysia.
