Zentech Manufacturing is pleased to announce the acquisition of Interconnect Design Solutions LLC (IDS).
The addition of IDS and their experienced design engineering team to the Zentech portfolio adds significantly to Zentech's already comprehensive Engineering Services capabilities, which now includes: OrCAD, Autocad, PADS, Altium, Cadence Allegro and Mentor Expedition for PCB layout; Pro Engineer, Solid Works, Rhinoceros and 3D Scan for mechanical engineering; Signal Integrity, Thermal Analysis and complete DfX capabilities.
Related to the transaction, Mike Brown joins the Zentech team as Vice President of Engineering Services.
Prior to the formation of IDS, Brown managed all ECAD printed circuit board related design activity at Ciena Corp. for 12 years in the Baltimore market and is widely recognized in the Mid-Atlantic as one of the top designers for high technology circuit board layout requirements.
"The acquisition of IDS (Charleston, South Carolina), coupled with the May 2015 acquisition of Colonial Assembly and Design LLC (Fredericksburg, Virginia) and Zentech's robust capabilities in Baltimore, Maryland, provides outstanding engineering services capability, with multiple Zentech Design Centers now strategically located throughout Zentech's primary Eastern Seaboard market," commented Matt Turpin, CEO and president of Zentech.
Brown said, "The IDS team has supported design related activity for Zentech and their customers for many years and we are absolutely thrilled to be acquired by Zentech. The future at Zentech is very bright and I am excited to lead the Engineering Services portion of the business."
