WILMINGTON, Mass. — Solectron Corp. upgraded its Wilmington, Mass., manufacturing facility capabilities to focus on new product introduction (NPI) and low-volume, high-mix (LVHM) manufacturing services. Coined FinePitch Technology, the operations, also located in Solectron's Fremont, Calif., facility, provide prototyping and NPI solutions to ease time-to-market and LVHM manufacturing services.
