Reading time ( words)

Varitron has acquired all assets of XCELSIA Technologies, a Mirabel-based manufacturing services provider specialized in electronic circuit assembly. Under the terms of the transaction, all 15 positions in XCELSIA, as well as its facility at 18005 Rue Lapointe in Mirabel, will be maintained. Varitron, which owns plants in Saint-Hubert and Granby, Québec, as well as in New Hampshire, intends to invest in capacity at this fourth site in 2019.

“This new site will be dedicated to prototyping and small-batch production so as to better serve our customer base,” explains Michel Farley, president and CEO, Varitron Group. “With this addition, we are enhancing our overall capacities. The strategic position on Montréal’s North Shore enables us to better serve the Greater Ottawa Region and access a broader pool of talent, which is a significant advantage in these times of global labour shortage.”

This acquisition will be integrated immediately into company’s operations. The enhanced prototyping capacity will offer better support to Varitron’s customers wanting faster product introduction into their market.

With the trend of shortening lead-times within the material ordering process, and the frequency with which urgent orders for materials from the grey market are made, there is increased opportunity for the ingress of counterfeit materials. The situation is made far worse when a genuine shortage of materials in the supply chain occurs. The consequences of not being able to eliminate the risk of defects getting through into the market will be disastrous for individuals as well as for the company brand image, not to mention the associated costs of recovery. It is only a matter of time, unless something very significant changes.

Synergy Between Smart Manufacturing and the Secure Supply Chain (Part 1)

As MRP and ERP functions follow computing trends and start to migrate into the cloud, a fundamental question is being raised as to whether these are still the right tools to use in today’s modern Industry 4.0 driven factory, or whether these need to evolve, be enhanced, or even replaced in order to meet the more extreme requirements of operational flexibility, as well as cope with volatile material availability in the market.
