Myotek Acquires Electronics Manufacturer Amptech


Reading time ( words)

Founded in 1980, Amptech designs, engineers and manufactures circuit boards and other electronic assemblies for customers in automotive, utility and other industrial end markets and applications. The acquisition will allow Myotek to provide its customers with domestic production capabilities for its automotive lighting products. Amptech's Lee Wyatt will continue to serve as president of the company.

New Water Capital, L.P., views the addition of Amptech as a way to expand the capabilities of Myotek, a leading transportation LED lighting designer, manufacturer and supplier specializing in automotive forward lighting for several OEM automakers and other vehicle manufacturers. Myotek's acquisition of Amptech will strengthen the company's domestic manufacturing capabilities and allow the company to assemble lighting products across two continents.

"Amptech represents a highly strategic acquisition for the Myotek platform," said New Water Capital Partner Brian McGee. "Our partnership with Amptech will support Myotek's vision for expanding its lamp manufacturing capabilities domestically."

Plans are to expand existing Amptech manufacturing facilities in Michigan and Pennsylvania to accommodate customer demand. "We are excited that our partnership with New Water and Myotek will enable Amptech to grow, both in its historic core business segments as well as more deeply penetrate the automotive lighting end market," said Amptech President Lee Wyatt.

Myotek CEO Eric Showalter said the partnership with Amptech will differentiate Myotek from its competitors by offering its customers a shorter supply chain based in the United States. "Building out U.S. manufacturing will allow us to more efficiently support Myotek's growth and our customers over the coming years," Showalter said. "We are excited about the prospects of building our products right here in Michigan."

In Part 1 of this conversation, Sagi Reuven— business development manager at Mentor, a Siemens Business—makes the case that smart factory implementations must start with traditional process analysis and improvement before the data capture process is useful. He also covers how sometimes the key to utilizing Industry 4.0 comes from a change in mindset rather than a drastic change or investment in new equipment or processes.

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions. "We have customers asking about future capabilities that they might not be ready for right now, but they want to know that it’s something that can be easily integrated into their processes in the future, as they’re in a position to better be able to do so."

"One of the biggest challenges for me selling is educating customers that they can generate oxygen and nitrogen on their own for up to 90% savings versus getting trucked in deliveries," said Mike Montesi of On Site Gas Systems. "It’s all about education because 98–99% of customers are used to the high cost of delivered gases, where we can separate it on-site with their own equipment, and the payback is typically under a year."
