COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TTM Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:TTMI), a major global printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturer, today announced that it will cease operations at its Suzhou, China facility ("MAS") and lay off approximately 600 employees at this facility at or near the end of September 2013. TTM intends to transfer PCB production at MAS to one or more of its facilities located in China, providing an uninterrupted supply of PCBs to customers.

The decision to close the MAS facility was based on the facility's capabilities not being consistent with TTM's advanced technology strategy, and the fact that it has not been profitable.

TTM will offer separation and other benefits to the affected employees. TTM expects to record, primarily in the third quarter, between $10 million and $20 million in separation, asset impairment and disposal costs related to this restructuring.
