PEI-Genesis, known as one of the world’s fastest assemblers of precision connectors and cable assemblies, opened the new facility as part of the company’s strategic plan to expand into new geographies.

With the opening, the company expands its longstanding-partnership with Amphenol, one of the largest manufacturers of interconnect products in the world, allowing manufacturers in the Rail-Mass Transit, Commercial Air, Oil and Gas, Solar and Industrial markets to access world-class interconnect technology with flawless quality and fast assembly and shipment. PEI has been an authorized value-add distributor of Amphenol products for more than 15 years.

“China is the fastest growing market for our products today,” said Jane Fischetti, PEI’s General Manager Asia, South America, and Distribution. “The move into China, allows customers to place orders as small as one piece and receive delivery in a few days.”

The PEI factory in Zhuhai uses the same proprietary automation, the same process flow, and the same software used in the company’s facilities in the U.S. and the UK, filling a critical need in the Chinese market for high-mix, low volume configured connectors.

“We are excited that PEI-Genesis has entered the China market with their unique, high service model. Our customers in China will benefit greatly from this partnership, which has been so successful in other parts of the world due to the ability of PEI-Genesis to quickly respond to changing market demands,” said Martin Booker, Vice President & Group GM Amphenol Industrial Products Group.

PEI-Genesis’s Zhuhai facility is open and fully operational. Sales and operational teams are ready to service customers with the same speed and dedication customers have come to expect from PEI in North America and Europe.

“There is no other distributor in China focused on high-mix, low-volume production,” said Fischetti. “We want to be viewed as a Chinese company, bringing our unique ability to deliver millions of different part numbers in 48-hours, while also offering engineering and design support.”
