CML is branching out to the USA by establishing its operations in Houston last month, in line with its growing customer base in the country.
CML aims to be close to its customers—not just geographically but also culturally—to meet their requirements as well as assist them in their challenges. Its USA team has at least 20 years of accumulated expertise and experience in the PCB industry.
For the first time, CML USA Corp.—CLS’s U.S. facility—will be exhibiting at the IPC APEX EXPO 2018, where its team will highlight the company’s distinctive PCB sourcing concept.
