Turing Robotics Industries (TRI) has announced that it plans to manufacture the world's most robust mobile phone devices “for the next decade and beyond in Salo”.Antti Rantakokko, the Mayor of Salo, has voiced his delight with the decision of Turing Robotic Industries (TRI), a data security and privacy-oriented smartphone manufacturer based in California, to re-locate its manufacturing operations and global headquarters to Salo.

“This is great for Finland and, first and foremost, for Salo,” he states.

“Several estimates of how many people the company will employ in Salo have been circulating in the media. The company will, according to its chief executive officer, need a maximum of 270 employees.”

Rantakokko estimates that the decision by TRI is “yet another indication” of the worldwide recognition enjoyed by Salo and Finland as a hub of expertise and benevolent operational environment. “[The decision] will also bolster the hub of contemporary expertise that is developing in Salo,” he says.

Turing Robotic Industries confirmed its decision to establish a new global headquarters in Salo to TechCrunch, an online publisher of technology industry news, on Thursday.

“TRI will start production of the Turing Phone in Salo starting April 2016,” Steve Chao, the chief executive at TRI, said after characterising Salo as a city with an impeccable history in mobile phone production. “[TRI] has plans implemented to build the world's most robust mobile phone devices and future network products for the next decade and beyond in Salo.”

Chao estimated that the smartphone manufacturer will recruit 10–20 local employees for every 1,000 phones manufactured to perform both hardware and software testing, flashing and assembly. TRI has according to him laid out plans to ramp up production to more than 300,000 units before the end of the year.

The decision to relocate to Finland was taken primarily on grounds of security concerns, he revealed. “Finland's Act on the Protection of Privacy in Electronic Communications, which safeguards confidentiality and privacy in telecommunications, was the main reason behind TRI's move to Finland,” he said.

The smartphone manufacturer also confirmed to TechCrunch that it has decided to ditch Android in favour of Sailfish, an operating system developed by Jolla, having announced earlier this month that it has entered the final stage of testing the operating system.
