Reading time ( words)

IEC Electronics Corp. has sold its Southern California Braiding Company, Inc. (SCB) business to DCX-CHOL Enterprises, Inc. (DCX), a leading provider of engineered high performance interconnect products, for a purchase price of approximately $2.5 million.

"This divestiture is consistent with the company's strategy to enhance IEC's focus on our core business and vertical markets," said Jeffrey T. Schlarbaum, president and CEO of IEC Electronics. "SCB possesses distinguished capabilities, but absorbed disproportionate resources relative to its size and strategic importance to our overall business. The sale enables us to redirect our resources while having an immediate positive impact on the company's financial health. DCX is the perfect acquirer, providing our employees at SCB the opportunity to join an organization aligned with its business and also committed to its growth. We are fully committed to supporting the smooth transition for customers, employees and partners."
