Nortech Systems Launches PCBA Operations in Mexico


Reading time ( words)

Nortech Systems Incorporated announced today that it has successfully launched printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) manufacturing at its Monterrey, Mexico, facility. This expansion – one of Nortech’s key strategic initiatives for 2015 – is designed to help support its North America-based customers by providing a high-value option to complement its existing, U.S.-based PCBA design, production and service capabilities.

“Adding a PCBA manufacturing option in Mexico has always been a popular request from our customers,” said Rich Wasielewski, president and CEO of Nortech Systems. “We’re happy to provide these partners a great option that provides high value with assuredness of Nortech’s strong quality and speed-to-market.”

Nortech initially established its Monterrey facility in 2002, focusing on complex wire and cable assembly production services. The facility features ISO 9001 certification and on-site manufacturing engineering support. The PCBA expansion – co-located next to existing wire/cable operations – offers both SMT and manual “thru-hole” production to meet growing customer needs.

In addition to Monterrey, Nortech also features PCBA manufacturing capabilities at its facilities in Mankato and Merrifield, Minnesota, along with related integration and box-build manufacturing services. All three facilities will share engineering, design and other support resources on projects to offer customers optimized scheduling and cost benefits.
