Nortech Systems Launches PCBA Operations in Mexico


Reading time ( words)

Nortech Systems Incorporated announced today that it has successfully launched printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) manufacturing at its Monterrey, Mexico, facility. This expansion – one of Nortech’s key strategic initiatives for 2015 – is designed to help support its North America-based customers by providing a high-value option to complement its existing, U.S.-based PCBA design, production and service capabilities.

“Adding a PCBA manufacturing option in Mexico has always been a popular request from our customers,” said Rich Wasielewski, president and CEO of Nortech Systems. “We’re happy to provide these partners a great option that provides high value with assuredness of Nortech’s strong quality and speed-to-market.”

Nortech initially established its Monterrey facility in 2002, focusing on complex wire and cable assembly production services. The facility features ISO 9001 certification and on-site manufacturing engineering support. The PCBA expansion – co-located next to existing wire/cable operations – offers both SMT and manual “thru-hole” production to meet growing customer needs.

In addition to Monterrey, Nortech also features PCBA manufacturing capabilities at its facilities in Mankato and Merrifield, Minnesota, along with related integration and box-build manufacturing services. All three facilities will share engineering, design and other support resources on projects to offer customers optimized scheduling and cost benefits.

Preparing the Next-gen Tech Workforce

Knowledge transfer, especially from the “graying-out” experienced technical workers in our industry, is a complex, difficult family of problems. It differs wildly between companies, and even within divisions of the same company. One of the biggest barriers is the full manufacturing schedules in North American electronics companies that don’t leave any slack time—and the 40-hour work week is a complete fantasy for many.

Are Your Existing Machines Enough to Keep Up?

Buy new or make do? It’s an age-old debate for manufacturers who are trying to decide how best to manage machine assets inside their manufacturing facilities. New machines are expensive, but so is operating existing machines at a comparative deficit.

Finding Solutions in the Quoting Process

05/03/2022 | Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits
It’s easy to frame all our supply chain woes around the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at Screaming Circuits, we started receiving dire warnings about component shortages in early 2018. At that time, we were told that the supply upheaval could last years and that we should expect it to get much worse before it got better. Now, four years later, I would say those warnings nailed it.
