PCB Solutions, Inc, a Contract Electronics Manufacturer in Layton, Utah, has announced the addition of enhanced bar-coding and scanning equipment for their Materials, Resources, and Planning System. As millions of US companies continue to struggle through the recession, this young and vibrant company maintains its commitment to continually innovate their technology and processes.
Owner Dave Woodbury said “our business is about relationships and our ability to meet the needs of our customers. Some of them want a turn-key solution and we have to be very precise in our procurement efforts. Some of our printed circuit board assembly customers still consign their inventory to us making it even more important that we offer complete traceability throughout the manufacturing process. We know we need to continue to focus on the MRP aspect of our business which is why we feel it is necessary to keep investing in equipment and updating our processes.”
PCB Solutions, Inc. (pcb-solutions.net) provides a full array of Electronic Manufacturing Services to industries across the globe that include consumer electronics, broadcasting, medical device manufacturing, automotive technologies, the United States Department of Defense, and more. They are an ISO 9001:2000 with AS 9100:2004 Rev B Certified Company that employs business professionals, mechanical and electrical engineers, line technicians, and IPC-Certified quality inspectors. This PCBA company reported triple-digit growth in 2006, 2007, and 2008, and company representatives believe that their focus on Materials Management alongside of their Manufacturing Processes sets them apart from their competitors.
Steve Niblack, VP of Operations came to PCB Solutions Inc in 2006 and offered significant insight and experience with regard to Materials Planning and Inventory. Together with Parts and Cage Manager Erika Banuelos, they have continued to enhance and refine the MRP System so that it is “perhaps the most extensive MRP system in the PCB Assembly industry.”
“We have military and medical customers,” reported Steve Niblack, “that entrust us with millions of dollars of critical electronic components. Those parts are safe here and we pride ourselves on our ability to manage critical inventory for our customers. I think it really sets us apart.”
“It’s essential,” stated Joe Otterstrom, VP of Manufacturing, “that our customers are completely comfortable having us acquire components for their assemblies. We need to be able to report to them at any given moment the status of their assembly and the parts that we have purchased for them. Our new bar-code system connects right to our MRP system and allows complete traceability throughout each phase of the manufacturing process. It’s far more efficient for us which translates to added value for the customer.”
