Epec Engineered Technologies Invests in Excel Electrocircuit

Release Date:

[July 12, 2010: Orion, MI and New Bedford, MA] Excel Electrocircuit, a leading quick-turn and military aerospace PCB manufacturer located in Orion Michigan, today announced an equity partnership with Epec Engineered Technologies. Epec, headquartered in New Bedford MA and Shenzhen China, is one of the fastest growing PCB and engineered product providers in North America, with manufacturing facilities in the USA and Asia.

Nipur Shar, Chairman of Excel Electrocircuit, shared "with the rush to globalization it has been challenging to profitably make Printed Circuits Boards in North America. However, we have successfully dedicated our business to the military, defense, and quick turn PCB sectors. Epec's investment helps reaffirm our business model is working."

Greg Klein, Chairman of Epec said "for some years there has been a progressive migration of the electronics industry to Asia. However, after reviewing our long range strategic plans and the global trends, we determined that further investing in North American PCB manufacturing will ensure we continue meeting our customers' dynamic and growing needs for quick turns, military and ITAR printed circuit boards."
