Flexible Operational Leases Help Manufacturers Scale in North America

Current worldwide challenges are forcing North American manufacturers to re-analyze supply chains for mission critical IC components—to ensure reliable delivery, quality and protection of intellectual property. Developing self-reliant and scalable manufacturing within North America is more important today than ever with large scale shifts in the manufacturing eco-system.

So how do semiconductor manufacturers meet demand while keeping CAPEX down?
