While expansion into Asia is not unusual in the world of electronics manufacturing, the opening of an office in Shanghai and the strengthening of its Shenzhen operations says much about the progress diplan has made in a short time. Now a critical partner to many leading electronics manufacturers, diplan can offers its SMT software solutions on the doorstep of many of its customers. diplan started out 16 years ago as the developer of the Machine Data Management System software for Siemens Electronics Assembly Division's HS/SP component placement platform, and has been developing software alongside Siemens ever since. The success and global adoption of Siemens' SIPLACE platform, with its market-leading software, has resulted in major growth for diplan. Also, diplan was nominated in early summer 2004 as a preferred vendor to SIPLACE.
