Silicon Mountain, a leading electronic manufacturing company, announced that it has invested in Cetec’s Web-based ERP. From quoting and inventory and production to invoicing and accounting, Cetec ERP has streamlined Silicon Mountain’s facility.
Cetec ERP’s leading-edge system helps Silicon Mountain handle stringent regulatory requirements and track dynamic production environments, all from a single, friendly Web interface. “Cetec is well established in the PCBA industry,” stated Clint Roehr, Project Manager. “It also covers our needs for documentation control and production data collection to establish metrics.”
Cetec ERP is quickly becoming the industry standard for EMS and PCBA companies. The platform offers the ability to import customer BOM spreadsheets with hundreds of components, track lead count, attrition, reference designators, and approved vendor lists as "pools" of substitutable part numbers.
Silicon Mountain is capable of both low- and high-volume production, allowing customers to quickly go from product development to market. The company focuses on SMT, through-hole, mechanical assembly, and higher level assembly (HLA).

Is effective networking a skill or a mindset? I can remember the anxiety I felt around my first few networking events in the electronics industry when my skills weren’t as honed as they are now. I wondered, “How will I remember everyone’s names? Will I be nervous to approach strangers and start a conversation? What will we talk about?” It was always a highly stressful situation for me, and I bet many of you can relate to this.
