AT&S, an Austria-based printed circuit board and IC substrate maker, hopes investment and technology upgrade in its Shanghai and Chongqing plants will improve its profitability, Chief Executive Andreas Gerstenmayer said yesterday in Shanghai.

AT&S plans to produce 50,000-80,000 square meters of integrated circuit substrate annually in China after the Chongqing plant reaches maximum capacity. Hopefully this will help cut reliance on imports.
