Epec Becomes Epec Engineered Technologies
[October 27, 2009: New Bedford MA] Epec Engineered Technologies, formerly Epec, announced today that it has changed its corporate identity to Epec Engineered Technologies and is launching a new Web site, www.epectec.com.
Epec, the oldest and fastest growing PCB manufacturer in North America, has recently expanded its design and manufacturing capabilities, into built-to-print engineered electronic products, resulting in an identity shift and new Web site.
Three years ago, in partnership with several key customers, Epec began investing in broadening their product offering to include the development and manufacture of membrane switches, graphic overlays and custom battery packs. With this growth came the expansion of their already substantial 24 x 7 engineering services, which offers customers product development support, and gives the company a distinct advantage in getting their products to market, at the lowest overall cost.
Ed McMahon, CEO of Epec Engineered Technologies, commented on this significant decision, "Epec's strategic initiatives are focused on quality, innovation and value-added services. When our customers began asking us to diversify and assist them in manufacturing other built-to-print products in their supply chain, we did extensive research, and worked closely with them to make the right investments, that align with their needs. Our longer range plan is to continue developing engineering and manufacturing solutions that help our customers get to market faster. Expanding our name at this juncture, to Epec Engineered Technologies, is both appropriate and timely."
Listen to Epec's CEO, Ed McMahon, talk about his company's transition from a PCB fabricator to an engineered technologies company providing a variety of services and products to their customers. The new business model has allowed them to thrive in what many see as a very difficult market, growing while most are in decline.
