ROCKY HILL, CT--To increase production, speed turnaround and enhance new product development, Multicore Solders, a division of Loctite Corp., will move its manufacturing, technical support and customer service operations to a facility in Industry, CA.

Solder paste production has already started at the facility. All related support operations will be transferred by year's end. Complete with advanced applications laboratories and production equipment, the manufacturing facility will allow Multicore to better meet the time-sensitive needs of the microelectronics industry.

Multicore's operations will use 4,000 square feet of the facility, which will double the production capabilities of the original Richardson, TX, manufacturing plant. Dexter Electronic Materials, another Loctite division, will occupy the remaining space.
