SlingShot Assembly Acquires BEI Electronics


Reading time ( words)

SlingShot Assembly continues to alter the landscape of U.S. PCB assembly with the acquisition of Wisconsin-based BEI Electronics. The combined company provides a unique offering of ultra-fast, high-quality prototype assembly integrated with higher volume PCB assembly and related product services. Both facilities will remain in operation.  The owners of BEI Electronics, Bill and Kevin Rafferty, will continue to be involved in the business.  Kevin will remain in his role as Vice President of BEI, while Bill will assist with the integration with SlingShot for one year.  Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. 

“Our customers get the best of both worlds now in PCB and product assembly services,” said Kevin Ryan, President of SlingShot Assembly and BEI Electronics. “We are integrating the services of both companies to give customers a seamless and efficient experience while at the same time maintaining the core competencies of each business.” 

NEW - SlingShot Assembly is changing how engineers and their companies think about prototype PCB projects. Tapping into the power of the industry’s best software and automated assembly equipment, SlingShot completes high quality, full turn-key PCB assemblies in as little as 72 hours. Customers can quote and order projects online in minutes or, if they prefer, work through a dedicated service and engineering team to quote and place orders. SlingShot’s engineering team runs each order through the industry’s leading Design for Assembly (DFA) software to address design issues pre-assembly saving time and money and often eliminating entire prototype revisions. 

BEI Electronics has operated in Wisconsin for more than two decades partnering with a wide variety of customers on production builds of both PCBs as well as full product assemblies. BEI provides customers with PCB assembly as well as box build/integration, testing and conformal coating among other services. A growing presence in the Electronics Manufacturing Services industry, BEI has build a culture of quality and trust with its customer base.
