As the oldest production Printed Circuit Board Company in North America, perhaps in the world, the 60-year story of Epec is connected to the development of the PCB and the electronics industry.
Epec, through the merger of Electralab and Printed Electronics Corp (EPEC), are proudly two of the five founding members of the IPC, the 2,900 member trade association supporting the $1.5 trillion global electronics industry.
From pioneering innovation in the PCB Industry with R & D, training and setting professional core values, the legacy of Epec has now passed to a new generation of very bright young people, but still continues the great tradition of imagination.
In incubating new technologies, the Epec team continue breaking new frontiers in engineering, and enjoying exponential growth in related sectors of electronics, with custom battery packs, membrane switches, rubber keypads, and EC fans and drives.
