As a private company, SMTC will have greater access to resources to invest in the high-growth-markets with high-quality, innovative solutions and services,” said Ed Smith, who will continue as President and Chief Executive Officer of SMTC Corporation.

Phillip Wood-Smith, Managing Director of H.I.G., commented, “We are excited to help SMTC achieve its full potential as a private and independent company by supporting Eddie Smith and his team as they build a stronger customer-focused EMS platform.”
