Atlantech Expands Sales Team on the Back of Kurtz Ersa Growth

Reading time ( words)

Kurtz Ersa North America is seeing strong demand for its new equipment, including rework systems, N2 wave soldering and selective soldering systems. To keep up with growing demand, Atlantech Inc.—which manages and sells to the Mid-Atlantic States, including Maryland, Washington D.C., Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina for the past 12 years with Kurtz Ersa—has hired Bryce Timms as its newest sales representative in Eastern Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, and selected accounts in North Carolina.

"I am so very pleased to have Bryce on board," said Nagy Bayoumi, president of Atlantech. "His expertise is a solid fit for us. Our customers' equipment requirements are highly technically demanding, for which Ersa provides the solutions. Bryce understands these needs."

Atlantech established itself as an engineering and process solutions company in March of 1990 to service the printed circuit board (PCB) industry. As the industry took a downturn, Atlantech redirected its efforts and knowledge to focus on the SMT and microelectronics industries in the early 2000s.

Timms brings expertise in product management and application/service engineering in through-hole and selective soldering technologies to represent Ersa's new line of selective solder, reflow and rework equipment, and more.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to represent  Ersa, and to be with Atlantech," commented Timms. "I know the demands of our customers, so I know that Ersa's high-end equipment, capabilities and service will absolutely meet those demands."

In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.

Inspiring Next-Generation Engineers Through STEM

03/05/2020 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
Through the STEM Student Outreach Program, IPC invites high school students to visit IPC APEX EXPO for a day. Last year, they had about 100 participating students, and this year, it doubled. The program is designed to introduce students to our industry at a younger age. During one event planned for them, the students had a chance to participate in a hands-on soldering track, creating wearable buttons to take home with them.
