Cypress Industries Expands PCB, High Level Assembly in Mexico


Reading time ( words)

Cypress Industries has added additional Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) lines and expanded our High Level Assembly (HLA) footprint at our Mexico plant in order to handle additional volume.

These competitive advantages position our PCBA and HLA groups strategically for our customers looking to reshore to North America by providing a competitive cost structure while, in most cases, avoiding tariffs. We are able to do this through a transformation on products sourced from China that are integrated into finished goods at our Mexico plant," says Hardt

"As part of our expansion, we have hired VP of Operations Thomas Hardt to enhance our expertise and facilitate our growth," said Cypress Industries CEO Tom Lonsdale. "I am excited to have Thomas on board as he brings decades of relevant management experience. Thomas is also a fit with our corporate culture which focuses on customer and employee satisfaction."

"Our capabilities provide us with a competitive advantage in both PCBA and HLA," Hardt says. "Being able to manufacture and populate circuit boards, sheet metal and cables and then integrate all those into electromechanical assemblies, all in one facility, provides many advantages for our customers."

Some of these advantages include:

  • Single Source, point of contact
  • Quicker time to market
  • Shortened Lead Times
  • Reduced Inventories
  • Reduction in Freight
  • Lower Costs, no double mark-ups

Ability to import China products "In Bond" to provide a transformation on raw materials we are integrating into our high-level assemblies thus avoiding tariffs on most China products.

"These competitive advantages position our PCBA and HLA groups strategically for our customers looking to reshore to North America by providing a competitive cost structure while, in most cases, avoiding tariffs. We are able to do this through a transformation on products sourced from China that are integrated into finished goods at our Mexico plant," says Hardt.

The Double-edged Sword of CMMC 2.0

For the past few years, those whose SMT provider organizations supply or contract with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) have been hearing about—or even gearing up for—implementation of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, better known as CMMC. By this, I mean that you were gearing up for CMMC 1.0. Today, we have CMMC 2.0, and there are a number of changes in the new version that impact both the standards for compliance and how you certify that compliance—especially if you run a small business.

Are Your Existing Machines Enough to Keep Up?

Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.

Don’t Hit the Snooze on Cybersecurity

I have good news for small manufacturers looking for ways to stand apart from the competition: By delaying the launch of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), the Department of Defense (DoD) may have done you a favor. They’ve handed you a golden opportunity to zig when everybody else is zagging. If your competitors are small- and mid-sized businesses that supply the DoD, their concerns aren’t too different from yours. Sure, this CMMC stuff is coming, but it doesn’t seem urgent, or does it?
