Wearnes has been investing in properties in China, mainly in the residential segment since 1990s. Today, it has a substantial landbank in China, focused mainly in the five cities of Chengdu, Chongqing, Suzhou, Shanghai and Shenyang.

Through its property arm Huaxin International, its property business in China consists of property development, property management and property investment.

Huaxin International is reputed for its good quality housing, with more than 10 major property projects so far. In the pipeline is a premium residential project that is located on 319,364 sq m site in a prime area in Chengdu, China.

Shenyang was where Huaxin International first started its property business in 1990. Due to its foresight in the early years, Huaxin International has a big presence at Youth Avenue today in what is popularly known as the Golden Corridor of Shenyang. The Group is working to develop a prime mixed-use project on the former Summer Palace site. That site is about 33,473 sq m.

In that vicinity, Huaxin’s properties Riverside Garden and Wulihe Plaza are already located together with 5-star international hotels in the bustling area. Wulihe Plaza has 17,000 sq metres of retail space that houses the likes of international brands such as Louis Vuitton and Prada.

Huaxin was also one of the first to develop large-scale residential properties in Suzhou. In 2002, it sold out an entire phase of 700 units of its Orchard Manor project within three days.

Over the years, Huaxin International has garnered awards for setting high standards in design, construction, technological innovation, brand recognition, environmental protection and property management.

Technology

Technology manufacturing is one of Wearnes’ strengths, represented largely by the success of the Flexible Printed Circuits business. Flexible Printed Circuits help achieve the desired size, shape, weight and functionality of an electronic device. They are used in a wide range of modern electronic devices including mobile phones and personal digital assistants, portable bar code scanners and medical sensors.

One of the keys to Wearnes’ success in the manufacturing of Flexible Printed Circuits lies in its superior technology and processes which allow for seamless integrated manufacturing for customers.

Flexible Printed Circuits (“FPC”)

The Flexible Printed Circuits Group consists of Nasdaq-listed Multi-Fineline Electronix, Inc. (MFLEX) and Singapore mainboard-listed MFS Technology Ltd (MFS) . They are major global players that specialise in the design and manufacture of Flexible Printed Circuits, as well as the related assembly for colour display modules in handsets and other devices.

MFLEX

MFLEX ( www.mflex.com ) is a global provider of high-quality, technologically advanced flexible printed circuit and value-added component assembly solutions to the electronics industry. The Company is one of a limited number of manufacturers that provides a seamless, integrated end-to-end flexible printed circuit solution for customers, ranging from design and application engineering, prototyping and high-volume manufacturing to turnkey component assembly and testing.

The Company targets its solutions within the electronics market and, in particular, focuses on applications where flexible printed circuits are the enabling technology in achieving a desired size, shape, weight or functionality of an electronic device. Current applications for the Company’s products include mobile phones and smart mobile devices, computer/data storage, portable bar code scanners and other handheld consumer electronic devices. MFLEX’s common stock is quoted on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol MFLX.

In 2005, MFLEX was named by international business magazine Business Week as one of the “100 Best Small Companies” in the United States. The nomination was based on the company’s three-year results in sales growth, earnings growth and return on invested capital. In September, MFLEX was ranked 35th in FORTUNE Magazine’s “Top 100 Fastest-Growing Companies in the World”, based on revenue growth rate, earnings per share growth rate and a three-year annualised total return.

MFS

MFS provides its customers with one-stop design and build services across the telecommunication, computer and electronics industries. Specifically, the company has the complete design and engineering fabrication capabilities to produce a wide-range of flexible circuits and rigid printed circuit boards – these include single-sided, multi-layer and rigid-flex printed circuits.

It also has the capability to manufacture smaller and finer resolution parts – such as ball-grid arrays, flip-chips and chip-scale packages – that can accommodate advanced semiconductor technologies.

With an established global network and diversified customer base, MFS works closely with its major clients from the early stages to plan and co-develop FPC solutions for applications in products such as wireless handsets, small to mid-range LCD products, optical pick-up units and storage devices. MFS has manufacturing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia and China and offers customers cost-effective solutions.
