Apart from these revelations to the public, mu Space also announced that the factory would be built with high-grade materials, with 80% of the construction material being sourced locally while the remaining 20% being other innovative materials. The facility is planned to cover 200,000 square meters, however, it will begin at 20,000 square meters, the factory will boost the production capacity to around 1,000,000 units, and construction is expected to begin in 2025.
James Yenbamroong, mu Space CEO & CTO, had the following to say upon the Mega Factory:
“The size of the Mega Factory is set to be around 200,000 sq.m., as for the production capacity is at 1 million units, if we achieve this through a lot of hard work, we will be able to rapidly grow as a company”
