MicroSemi: Why we chose to invest in Wales

California-headquartered MicroSemi explains how support from the Welsh Government helped the company to invest in Wales.

Headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California, Microsemi offers a suite of semiconductor and system solutions for aerospace and defence, communications, data centres and industrial markets. Its team based in South Wales are experts in miniaturisation, using revolutionary small-scale electronics to develop novel communication systems for medical devices.

This is crucial for an industry where size really does matter; for medical professionals operating on their patients, the smaller the incision, the smaller the risk of infection. Martin McHugh, head of technology and business development, talks about why Wales is the ideal location for businesses like Microsemi.
