Cypress Industries Expands PCB, High Level Assembly in Mexico


Reading time ( words)

Cypress Industries has added additional Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) lines and expanded our High Level Assembly (HLA) footprint at our Mexico plant in order to handle additional volume.

These competitive advantages position our PCBA and HLA groups strategically for our customers looking to reshore to North America by providing a competitive cost structure while, in most cases, avoiding tariffs. We are able to do this through a transformation on products sourced from China that are integrated into finished goods at our Mexico plant," says Hardt

"As part of our expansion, we have hired VP of Operations Thomas Hardt to enhance our expertise and facilitate our growth," said Cypress Industries CEO Tom Lonsdale. "I am excited to have Thomas on board as he brings decades of relevant management experience. Thomas is also a fit with our corporate culture which focuses on customer and employee satisfaction."

"Our capabilities provide us with a competitive advantage in both PCBA and HLA," Hardt says. "Being able to manufacture and populate circuit boards, sheet metal and cables and then integrate all those into electromechanical assemblies, all in one facility, provides many advantages for our customers."

Some of these advantages include:

  • Single Source, point of contact
  • Quicker time to market
  • Shortened Lead Times
  • Reduced Inventories
  • Reduction in Freight
  • Lower Costs, no double mark-ups

Ability to import China products "In Bond" to provide a transformation on raw materials we are integrating into our high-level assemblies thus avoiding tariffs on most China products.

"These competitive advantages position our PCBA and HLA groups strategically for our customers looking to reshore to North America by providing a competitive cost structure while, in most cases, avoiding tariffs. We are able to do this through a transformation on products sourced from China that are integrated into finished goods at our Mexico plant," says Hardt.

Happy’s Essential Skills: Recruiting and Interviewing

12/29/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
Printed circuit manufacturing was not one of the jobs that electrical engineers in HP wanted to do. EEs were also not the best choice for printed circuit manufacturing because chemical engineers, chemists, and mechanical engineers had more skills useful to support the PCB manufacturing process. Therefore, I was authorized to recruit external hires. To recruit chemical engineers, we went to those universities noted for their focus on industries like electronics, process control, and environmental...

Training Is Hard, But It’s Also Soft

There is a disconnect in many manufacturing companies. This article is not about that disconnect, but rather a topic that gets clouded and the objectives made more difficult by that prevalent disconnect. Business owners, vice presidents, and operational executives are expected to have a vision for the company strategy. But what is not always fully known is the broad strokes of how to get there.
