Reading time ( words)

SMTC Corporation announced the completion of nearly $5 million in facility and equipment expansion in North America to support its growing global customer base. The company also announced orders in excess of $15 million from new medical customers that were conditioned upon being awarded ISO 13485 accreditation which the company recently obtained.

“Today’s announcement represents another important step forward as we position the company for continued growth,” said Ed Smith, SMTC’s President and CEO. “The SMTC team continues to separate itself from the competition by focusing on our customers’ increasing needs for vertically integrated, higher value services.”

The facility upgrades include higher volume capacity of package-on-package and ultra-fine pitch components at exceptionally high levels of quality in any board outline from SMTC’s U.S. manufacturing facility and the doubling of box-build manufacturing capacity at our Mexican operations.

“With these infrastructure investments, SMTC continues to differentiate itself by offering a local touch and global reach, while providing our clients with manufacturing excellence and flexibility that support new product introductions to volume scale,” added SMTC’s Chief Operating Officer Rich Fitzgerald.

“ISO 13485 accreditation represents an important milestone in our ongoing effort to provide best-in-class service to an expanding base of customers,” said Steve Brown, SMTC’s Senior Vice President of Quality and Technology. “The addition of this rigorous accreditation further enhances our copy exact and standardization practices through the SMTC portfolio,” Brown added.
