Saline Lectronics, Veris Manufacturing Join Emerald EMS

Reading time ( words)

Principles at Emerald Electronics Manufacturing Services announced the recapitalization of two leading electronics manufacturing service providers—Saline, Michigan-based Saline Lectronics Inc. (SLI) and Brea, California-based Veris Manufacturing. Both companies are manufacturers of high-mix, low- to medium-volume printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) and box builds for high-reliability end markets, including industrial controls, aerospace and defense, and medical.

“All of us at Emerald are excited about the expanded geographic reach and manufacturing capabilities that Saline Lectronics and Veris Manufacturing bring to the mix,” said Emerald EMS CEO Vic Giglio. “Their addition expands the Emerald EMS footprint into Southern California and the Midwest domestically, bringing increased geographic flexibility and expanded capacity to all of our customers.”

Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Saline, Michigan, Saline Lectronics Inc. is a full-service electronics solutions company with a 110,000-square-foot manufacturing facility providing engineering, printed circuit board assembly, testing, electro-mechanical box build, and direct fulfillment for complex, high-reliability electronic systems for the industrial controls, aerospace and defense, medical and oil industry end-markets.

Originally known as Quality Control Manufacturing, Veris Manufacturing was founded in 1987 by electrical engineer John Ivory, then purchased in 2001 by former CEO Bill McIlvene, who expanded the company from a “mom and pop” thru-hole shop to a world-class EMS provider. Based in Brea, California, the company’s 40,000-square-foot facility provides high-reliability manufacturing and engineering services focused on the aerospace and medical end-markets.

“Our partnership with Emerald EMS will allow us to offer our customers expanded capacity as well as access to lower-cost options through Emerald’s Shenzhen, China, manufacturing facilities, while Emerald gains a strong Midwest presence,” said SLI President and CEO Mario Sciberras.

“Joining Emerald expands our access to new markets and provides investment opportunities for us to build on our capabilities in order to stay ahead of the demands of our growing customer base,” said Veris Manufacturing President Jay Cadler.

Day-to-day operations are expected to remain unchanged at both SLI and Veris, which will continue to operate under their existing brand names under the Emerald umbrella, Giglio said.

Emerald EMS, a New Water Capital portfolio company, was launched in July 2020 with the merger of two leading EMS companies—DataED, based in Salem, New Hampshire, and Bestronics, based in San Jose, California. Both companies were recapitalized by New Water in November 2019 as part of a series of strategic investments in the EMS sector.

“Our goal at New Water is to support and invest in businesses with enduring value propositions,” said New Water Capital partner Brian McGee. “Both SLI and Veris embody the high quality standards, customer-first ethic, manufacturing expertise and strong, localized customer bases that make them perfect complements to the Emerald team.”

Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
