NOTE Reports a Sharp Increase in Deliveries to Plejd

Reading time ( words)

During the fourth quarter of 2018, NOTE distributed a Press Release about a collaboration with Plejd, a fast-growing Swedish company in the area of ​​smart lighting. NOTE estimated that the collaboration would be worth approximately SEK 30 million at an annual rate, which was also a level established in 2019. So far this year, volumes have developed above expectations with a growth of just over 150% and now Plejd is increasing the rate further. Initiatives have been taken to build a material buffer to ensure further flexibility and growth. The conditions are good that the cooperation with Plejd will develop into one of NOTE's largest business in 2020.

”NOTE's organic growth continues to develop positively. We are growing successfully through expanded partnerships in our strong customer base, both in traditional industry and in new fast-growing application areas. We are very pleased with the development of our close collaboration with Plejd, which we see as an extremely innovative company,” says Johannes Lind-Widestam, CEO and President.

”Since we are in a very expansionary phase, NOTE has proven to be the right partner to work with. They have quickly adjusted their production capacity with the same high-quality level. The collaboration and proximity between NOTE's plant in Lund and ours in Mölndal have given good synergies, which we look very positively at,” says Mikael Blixman, COO at Plejd.

With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.

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.
