Feb 11, 2008
Silicon Forest Electronics, Inc., a very successful electronic manufacturing services provider in the US, has just extended its global manufacturing reach through a strategic partnership with UK based ACW Technology Ltd (ACW), one of Britain's most successful contract electronics manufacturers.
SFE will utilize ACW's Chinese manufacturing services to support the US market while continuing to support US customers with its own engineering, new product introduction and prototyping services. At the same time, the partnership will see SFE becoming a local US based manufacturing and supply arm for ACW's customers needing US fulfillment. Ultimately, the partnership gives ACW and SFE's combined customer base access to global manufacturing and supply across factories in the UK, US and China.
Owen Reeves, Managing Director, ACW comments: "This partnership will offer localized product supply combined with excellent support and combined purchasing power; the combination of which will help us maintain and develop relationships with key customers and ensure future growth."
"Partnering with ACW gives our customers a low-risk route towards realizing the benefits of low cost, high volume manufacturing in Asia," explains Frank Nichols, CEO of SFE.
