Bittele Electronics Opens New Assembly Facility in Canada


Reading time ( words)

Bittele Electronics Inc. has launched a new PCB assembly facility in Markham, Ontario, Canada in an effort to assist their American clients.

The 14,000 square foot facility is now operational and will allow clients from the United States to receive the same high standard of quality they have come to expect from Bittele’s existing facility in Shenzhen, China while allowing them to avoid increased tariffs imposed by the US Government on Chinese goods. With the May 10th overnight increase of tariffs from 10% to 25% on select goods imported from China, now it is more important than ever to be able to provide clients a reliable assembly option in North America.

This facility located at 2680 14th Avenue Markham, Ontario, Canada, features two state-of-the-art printed circuit board assembly lines designed to replicate operations of the current facility in Shenzhen, China. The fully automated assembly lines feature top-of-the-line equipment such as:

  • DEK model E paste printers for solder paste printing
  • YAMAHA YS12 pick and place machines for component placement
  • RS1000II Reflow Ovens
  • Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) machines from JT Automation
  • Kurtz ERSA Selective Soldering machines
  • Dage Quadra 3 X-Ray Inspection

About Bittele Electronics 

Bittele Electronics has shifted its prototype assembly to the new Markham facility with intentions to offer higher-volume production in Canada within the next month. This will allow clients to benefit from the more favorable USMCA trade agreement, as well as additional flexibility and improved lead-times.

Increased digitalization and greater connectivity have been driving miniaturization and more complex and integrated designs in electronics. As the real estate on PCBs shrinks, so does the size of packages. However, the drive for finding design solutions for increased performance has continued to expand. The solder joint is an essential part of assemblies for electronic devices as it provides electrical, thermal, and mechanical connections. Therefore, soldering materials have been evolving to enable such a technological revolution.
