To support growing demand for its high-quality, precision antenna solutions in the Asia-Pacific region, Taoglas, a leading provider of IoT and M2M antenna products, today announced the opening of its new office in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. The office, which will have full RF design and testing facilities, demonstrates Taoglas’ strong commitment to providing wireless and IoT manufacturers in the region with the expertise and support they need to bring innovative products to market quickly.
Known as China’s “Most Innovative City” and home to more than 1 million companies, Shenzhen provides Taoglas with the expansion capabilities to accelerate the adoption of IoT and Connected Automotive technologies throughout the country and region. The Shenzhen office will work hand-in-in hand with Taoglas’ development centers in Taoyuan and Tainan, Taiwan, to deliver high-quality antenna, filter and connector solutions to its Asia-Pacific customers.
Taoglas has appointed new Vice President of Sales Lawrence Lin, a Silicon Valley veteran and a native of nearby Hong Kong, to drive business traction throughout the region.

Prior to joining Taoglas, he was the vice president of marketing and sales at Laxcen, a leading RFID company located in Hong Kong. He also held various engineering and marketing positions at Analog Devices and Atmel in the U.S. Lin earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from San Jose State University and is now pursuing his EMBA from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
“The opening of our new office in Shenzhen underscores our long-term commitment to providing our customers around the world with not just the antenna solutions they need to accelerate the product development cycle, but also the hands-on RF expertise to help deliver successful connected products to market,” Christin said. “Our Asia-Pacific customers have been clamoring for deeper local support to help drive new wireless and IoT product development, and Taoglas’ state-of-the-art facility in Shenzhen will help them achieve their goals.”
