IMI, a Global Multinational Company w/ Filipino roots Turns 40
August 11, 2020, Laguna, Philippines. - Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc (IMI), a leading global technology and manufacturing solutions expert with Filipino roots turns 40 this month.
“Having reached four decades is not an easy feat considering that among those companies who started at the same time with us in 1980 are no longer here,” said Arthur R. Tan, president and CEO.
With humble beginnings, IMI was established in 1980 as an integrated circuit assembler with a workforce of 100 and with only three factories in the Philippines. Its continued growth and development is deeply rooted in its values system that it began mapping out its expansion in terms of expertise, specialization and global presence. Today, the company is around 17,000 strong with 22 manufacturing sites across ten countries providing engineering, manufacturing, and support and fulfillment capabilities to diverse industries globally.
“We are grateful to have shown that a Filipino company can be a global multinational company. Many times, the Philippines is seen as dependent on multi-national companies coming into the country to develop our industry. What we have proven is that we can actually take part in the global arena and play a significant role in developing our industry,” said Tan.

We shall continue to be an integral part of the supply chain of electronic products, and now more than ever for health and medical devices. We shall remain relevant, all set for the next 40 years and beyond,” said Tan.
