SlingShot Assembly Acquires Jade Electronics


Reading time ( words)

SlingShot Assembly has announced its second acquisition in two years. To continue its quest to provide industry-leading customer experience in the PCB assembly sector, SlingShot has acquired the assets of Jade Electronics of Kenosha, Wisconsin. Jade’s assets, employees, and customers will be transferred to SlingShot’s nearby facility in Franksville, WI, which was acquired by SlingShot in 2018.

Jade’s founder and CEO, Jerry Phillips, will assist with the transition for up to one year. The integration is expected to be completed within 30 days. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Founded in 1992, Jade has provided high-quality electronic assembly services to a variety of customers and markets for over 25 years. Jade has been ISO certified and an IPC member for many years and has exceptional expertise in aerospace and LED lighting.

SlingShot Assembly, established in 2016 by a team led by industry veteran Stuart McKeel, president, is changing how engineers and their companies think about prototype PCB projects. Tapping into the power of the industry’s best software and automated assembly equipment, SlingShot completes high quality, full turn-key PCB assemblies in as little as 72 hours. Customers can quote and order projects online in minutes or, if they prefer, work through a dedicated service and engineering team to quote and place orders. SlingShot’s engineering team runs each order through the industry’s leading Design for Assembly (DFA) software to address design issues pre-assembly, saving time and money and often eliminating entire prototype revisions.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
