Qlife reaches production milestone – Signs outsourcing agreement with Finnish Scanfil
Qlife has signed an outsourcing agreement with Finnish group Scanfil to take over the continued production of the company’s Egoo device. Scanfil is a world leader in manufacturing and a system supplier to the global electronics industry with a vast network of factories, including a factory in Åtvidaberg, Sweden, that will support Qlife.
“The new agreement with Scanfil is a milestone for Qlife. As part of our long-term strategy, we initiated the outsourcing a while ago, and we expect the cooperation to give us both a better flexibility towards the market and a positive effect on our costs”, says Thomas Warthoe, CEO of Qlife Holding.
In line with the company’s overall business plan, Qlife initiated an outsourcing cooperation with Scanfil during the second quarter of 2021 with the aim to move out all device manufacturing by mid 2022. The target is to reach a capacity of 1,000 devices per month in 2023 to support our roll-out and go-to-market plans, and eventually scale to volumes that can service consumer markets.
“We are very satisfied with the cooperation with Scanfil. The company is a well-known manufacturer, and we trust that choosing a solid partner will benefit our potential for long-term growth. Scanfil has the know-how and the network to provide us with security in terms of scale, pricing, and global supply”, says Thomas Warthoe, CEO of Qlife Holding.
