San Jose, CA – May 22, 2018 – In order to continue to meet the ever-expanding requirements of the manufacturing industry, Power Design Services (PDS) and Green Circuits announced today that they have entered into a merger agreement effective May 21, 2018.
With a focus on speed and service, Power Design Services provides full-turnkey printed circuit board (PCB) design, prototype and production services. Built on a commitment to quality, Green Circuits is a full-service contract manufacturer focusing on prototyping and high mix, medium volume assembly.
“This partnership presents an opportunity to extend the missions of both organizations to provide high-quality design, prototyping and full-scale production services to our customers,” stated Ted Park, President, Green Circuits. “With many of our customers on aggressive development schedules, having all these capabilities within one organization reduces time to market, enabling a faster production ramp and reducing overall costs for our customers.”
“Constantly striving for perfection and working toward aligned goals with like-minded individuals, complimentary skills and a customer-first attitude, this partnership will provide customers with the assurance that their projects will be completed to their specific design requirements, on-time and on-budget,” stated Joe O’Neil, President, Power Design Services. “Combining these two strong organizations, both committed to service, speed, quality and customer service, I am excited about the path that we are on and for what the future holds for both our customers and employees.”
About Green Circuits
Green Circuits is a full-service contract manufacturer for the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry with a focus on prototyping and high mix, medium volume assembly. Founded in 2006, the company provides high speed, precision assembly of all types of printed circuit boards and specializes in quick turn manufacturing services where reduced time-to-market is essential to the latest technologies to meet the demands of both lead free and leaded manufacturing. Green’s objective is to provide solutions through all phases of product assembly. Prototyping leads to production, which leads to end product box-build. Green Circuits’ goal is to support the transition between these stages and offer the services required in doing so. Green Circuit’s processes and systems are registered to AS9100 and ISO13485 quality standards.
About Power Design Services
Power Design Services (PDS) was created in the interest of conveniently facilitating customer needs through partnership. PDS believes that only through thorough communication and diligent follow through can we expect return business. PDS specializes in prototype and pre-production build quantities with emphasis on quality and on-time delivery. PDS founders started in the printed circuit board industry in the early 80’s, and in 2003, with their experienced background, opened PDS. Knowing it would be a challenge in an over saturated industry; they knew that PDS could offer services and quality not been seen before within the industry. Today Fortune 500 companies such as Toshiba, Intel and LAM Research rely on PDS for their prototype and small production requirements.
Power Design Services’ process for designing and fabricating high-level printed circuit boards avoids common PCB failure modes that often occur in the electronics industry.
Shortcomings during the initial manufacturing process lead to many printed circuit board failures. The electronic product may also fail in later stages of development.
At Power Design Services, the management of PCB prototype development timelines and costs starts with our engineers.
Their comprehensive knowledge of the process of producing quality printed circuit boards is the foundation of Power Design Services’ reputation for outstanding customer service.
As with any production industry, businesses in the PCB industry need to maintain a healthy balance between the components they keep in stock and those they use for meet client orders. Ordering too many components comes with serious disadvantages, as does not ordering enough, and PCB manufacturers need to stay as close as possible to a happy medium between the two.
It goes without saying that Silicon Valley is a worldwide hotspot for Printed Circuit Board (PCB) assembly and production, but how can out-of-state manufacturers achieve results as quickly and reliably as California’s West Coast tech companies?
As early as a few years ago, long shipping and testing times forced manufacturers to rely on local suppliers, but this is no longer the case. The best PCB assembly companies can produce and ship circuit boards within 24 hours and then send them out using overnight shipping, putting valuable services in the hands of manufacturing concerns around the country.
If there is one way to guarantee world-class results in the electronics industry, it’s by ensuring factory floor technicians enjoy consistent, regular training. Regular training ensures that assembly line technicians use standardized methods, generating efficiencies and improving the assembly process.
PCB suppliers in the automotive space are vastly accelerating their time to market by using automated optical inspection (AOI) systems during PCB assembly. However, this next-generation technique is not limited in scope to the automotive industry – it has powerful implications for the entire PCB industry.
Prototype PCB assembly is a unique business in many ways. A design-heavy process, it hinges on the cusp between tech innovation and heavy industry. Additionally, obstacles common to PCB assembly manufacturers are virtually unheard of in other industries. These factors combine to make customer feedback very important for consistent success on PCB prototyping projects.
Solutions to Accelerate Innovation and Garner Savings
End-to-end PCB assembly by world-class companies like Power Design Services allows you to focus on your core competencies with the added benefits of reduced cost and time to market. From material procurement to circuit board design and manufacturing, and supply chain management, we serve your needs helping you reach customers faster. Here is an overview of what our turnkey electronic manufacturing services consist of, and how you can use them to reduce your build time and cost.
Professionally assembling circuit boards used to be slow. Many circuit board manufacturers still take up to two weeks or longer to produce circuit boards according to customer design specifications. we have developed cutting edge processes to shorten that time to three to five days on average.
At Power Design Services, we have developed cutting edge processes to shorten that time to three to five days on average. We excel at quickly delivering reliable, high quality circuit boards to our clients. We invest in the efficiency and speed of our assembly floor and continually improve our processes to deliver better, faster, and more dependable results.
