Flextronics International Selected by Hewlett-Packard to Manufacture DeskJet Printers in Hungary

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Flextronics International Ltd. (Nasdaq: FLEXF), a global full-service supplier of innovative design, engineering and electronics manufacturing solutions, today announced the company has been selected by Hewlett-Packard Company to be a primary manufacturer in Europe for inkjet printers, beginning with the HP DeskJet 720C printer.

Flextronics will be responsible for building both printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA) and complete box assembly. Production will be at the company's Sarvar campus in Hungary. The first printers are expected to be completed in September of 1998 and then will be shipped throughout Europe by HP.

Both companies anticipate that printers produced for HP by Flextronics will incorporate components produced by suppliers operating from the Sarvar campus, including EcoPlast, the wholly-owned plastic injection molding subsidiary of Flextronics.

"This is the first large commercial activity that validates our worldwide campus strategy," said Michael Marks, chairman and CEO of Flextronics. "In addition, the award in Hungary demonstrates both the viability of Hungary for large-scale electronics product assembly, as well as the successful combination of Flextronics and Neutronics which merged in a pooling of interests in November 1997."

"We are looking forward to this strategic opportunity with Flextronics," said Michael Fawkes, manager of HP's European Hardcopy Manufacturing Operation. "The combination of PCBA and electro-mechanical fabrication and assembly capabilities offered by Flextronics will be of significant value to HP."

The dollar amount of the agreement was not disclosed.
