Tecan announces US expansion
May 31, 2004
Headquartered in the UK, high-precision metal part and tooling specialist, Tecan has opened the doors to its new sales and technical support facility in California, in order to ensure the best local support for its increasing customer bases in the US and rapidly emerging markets of Mexico and Asia.
The company offers single-source high-precision metal part and tooling solutions, for present-day and next-generation contract manufacturing requirements. Comprehensively, the service spans technology development, through to rapid prototyping and volume production, supported by fully-traceable QA systems.
"Our business in the US and Asia has grown substantially over the past 4 to 5 years and as a result we have decided to invest in permanent facilities based in Rancho Santa Margarita, California," said Noel Cherowbrier, Tecan's VP International Development. "From this dedicated new facility we will support our existing US and Asian customer base, as well as develop new R&D projects and business with some of the world's leading technology companies. Furthermore, the move allows us to enhance support to our existing agency and distribution networks."
The company's established markets include CEM, automotive, defence, industrial, medical, aerospace and telecommunications. Typical products include encoder discs, leadframes, hybrid lids, deposition masks, meshes / sieves, microreplication tools and RFI / EMC screening cans and labyrinths.
