GARDEN GROVE, Calif.--Dense-Pac Microsystems Inc. here today announced it will increase its direct labor force by 10-to-15% to handle growing demand for stacked memory products. The three-dimensional chip-packaging company said new demand for stacked memory "appears to be a firming business climate."
Dense-Pac said it recently received a three-month commitment for its Memory Stack products from major PC manufacturer, which was not identified. The three-month commitment for orders was valued at more than $850,000, according to the Garden Grove company.
"Recent order activity indicates some strength is building in our market, and we are hopeful of continued business from this customer after the initial commitment," said Kevin Perry, vice president of sales and marketing at Dense-Pac. "Overall, we are seeing healthy interest in our technology as the need for higher density memory continues to grow--especially in the server and network segments of the market," he added.
Dense-Pac did say how many direct-labor jobs were being created to handle the increase in orders for 3-D packaging, but the company recently reported that it had 112 full-time employees at the end of April, with about 47 in manufacturing and testing operations.
