Andover, MA – March 15, 2010 – MEMSIC, Inc (NasdaqGM: MEMS), a leading MEMS sensing solution provider, announced today that the company has completed the construction of its new manufacturing facility and R&D center in Wuxi, China.

The newly finished facility encompasses 224,000 square feet, including a 130,000 square feet manufacturing facility and a 94,000 square feet R&D institute.
