Fabrilink SEZC (“Fabrilink”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Fabrinet (NYSE: FN), today announced its intention to establish an engineering design centre to supplement its existing operations within Cayman Enterprise City’s Internet Park. Fabrinet applies its proprietary technology and expertise to the engineering design and manufacture of special purpose components for its global clients in the information and communications technology sector. Fabrinet employs over 7,000 persons globally, including over 600 engineers; its customers include Lumentum and Oclaro.

Fabrilink announced it is seeking to hire 2-3 Caymanian Optical/Electrical Engineers with qualifications in optical systems, troubleshooting and design, and with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, Communication Engineering or Physics.

In keeping with its reputation internationally as ‘an excellent employer and corporate citizen’, Fabrilink will send the successful Caymanian candidates to spend a year training with Fabrinet in Thailand and California before returning to Cayman to take up their Optical/Electrical Engineering positions with Fabrilink. The candidates will receive intensive world-class in-house training, including general skill development, managerial development and professional/ technical development, under the tutelage of some of the world’s leading experts in this specialized field.

“Fabrinet has created exceptional career opportunities for thousands of citizens in Thailand, and has made a huge difference in their communities. These types of technology-focused training and careers being offered by Fabrinet in Cayman exemplify the opportunities Cayman Enterprise City and the Cayman Islands Government envisaged being created for Caymanians at the conception of the Special Economic Zone” said Charlie Kirkconnell, CEO of Cayman Enterprise City. “And we are advised by Fabrinet that this is only the first of many planned special projects that have the potential of having a positive impact in the local technology community”.

“Fabrinet, an exempt Cayman company, provides advanced optical packaging and precision optical, electro-mechanical and electronic manufacturing services to customers around the globe in a variety of end markets,” said Tom Mitchell, CEO of Fabrinet”. While Fabrinet’s headquarters and the bulk of our operations are located in Thailand, the company continues to grow its sales and operations around the world. Our relationship with CEC has been very rewarding, and we believe the addition of new staffing in Cayman will support Fabrinet’s overall growth strategy.”
