Fine Line Stencil (FLS) and Metal Etching Technology (MET) Associates are merging to form a new company called BlueRing Stencils.
BlueRing Stencils will maintain eight manufacturing locations across the USA (Texas, New Jersey, New Hampshire, California, Florida, Indiana, Minnesota, and North Carolina).
Fred Cox of MET has been appointed president of BlueRing Stencils. “We look forward to providing improved technology and greater service to all of our stencil customers. Our combined companies will allow us to offer the latest innovations in SMT stencil printing,” he commented.
Brent Nolan of Fine Line Stencil said, “FLS and MET are a perfect match. We have different technical solutions that will now be combined. Additionally, our new geography will allow us to reach 90% of the demanding stencil market in one day using ground freight.”
BlueRing Stencils will provide laser cut and electroformed stencil solutions. They will offer NanoSlic Gold and Microshield coatings, EZ-Step laser welded steps, Mesh-Weld foil bonding, root cause analysis and CAD-matic software solutions, as well as other stencil printing technologies.
