MIRTEC has earned a solid reputation with leading OEM and EMS companies throughout the world for its Technologically Advanced inspection systems. The company’s products have been extremely successful in high-volume markets including cell phone and MP3 player manufacturing, as well as low-volume high-mix markets such as medical, automotive, aerospace and defense. MIRTEC invests heavily in Research and Development, persistently focused on using state-of-the-art optics, lighting and projection technology in the development of their award-winning 3D inspection systems.
Kirby & Demarest was founded in 1973 by Dave Demarest as Demarest Associates, and has been serving the Pacific Northwest microelectronic community ever since. In the early days, Demarest concentrated on the hybrid or "chip & wire" area of electronic assembly, and gradually added equipment and supplies for the PCB portion of the business.
Major customers at the time, and still, include Boeing's Microelectronics Center, Sundstrand (now Honeywell), ICI (now Crane Interpoint), Tektronix, Intel, Micron, MCMS (now Plexus) and MSEI/Biotronik.
MIRTEC is a leading global supplier of automated inspection systems to the electronics manufacturing industry.
