Cemtrex Enters Into Agreement to Acquire Electronics Manufacturer


Reading time ( words)

Cemtrex Inc. has entered into a Letter of Intent to acquire a Silicon Valley-based electronic manufacturing services (EMS) firm focused on the semiconductor industry, as well as OEMs in the medical, industrial, telecommunications industries. The EMS company has averaged $7 million in annual revenues over the last two years. It also has an office in India to support the engineering and prototype development and operational activities.

This acquisition would be Cemtrex’s first foray into the US electronics manufacturing market and fulfills multiple strategic objectives for the company. Cemtrex already has an established manufacturing base in Europe with two locations in the premium German market and one site in the low cost Romanian market. With this new acquisition, Cemtrex can offer its existing clients, who are typically global players, much needed manufacturing support and solutions in the US market.

Additionally, the acquisition sets the stage for Cemtrex’s expansion into Asian markets down the road for manufacturing solutions with the new Indian location. Establishing a presence in Silicon Valley is also one of the most compelling places to offer electronic manufacturing services as the region has been booming with new hardware and software development attributed to new trends in wearable technology, “Internet of Things” devices, drones, and robotics. Cemtrex will look to capitalize on this growth and focus on working with innovative startups and entrepreneurs in developing disruptive products.

Cemtrex’s Chairman and CEO, Saagar Govil, commented on the acquisition news, “This pending acquisition is a strategic milestone in our effort to strengthen our electronics manufacturing solutions business. Silicon Valley is exactly where we want to be as we know the opportunities for our products and services will be in high demand long into the future. With this deal we will also be acquiring a support office in India which will allow us to leverage low cost engineering and administrative support to be competitive globally.”

The terms of the deal and the name of the Target was not disclosed due to confidentiality reasons. The transaction is expected to close before December 31, 2016.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
