Europlacer Completes Strongest Year Since 1998

Jan 05, 2012

Europlacer, a manufacturer of market-leading flexible SMT placement machines, reports its strongest financial results since the market boom of the late 1990s.

Europlacer’s results have been fueled by the increasing adoption of its iineo machine platform by leading OEMs and CEMs, and by increasing market share among forward-thinking US high-mix manufacturers.  Europlacer has seen widespread sales of iineo into the global market gaining new customers for its Integrated Intelligence concept in China, Europe and the United States.

With continuing release of enhanced productivity solutions and tools, Europlacer expects to continue building momentum.  Group Managing Director Derek Gaston said, “We are grateful to every customer who has placed their confidence in us and are delighted to be growing in an increasingly competitive market.  We are particularly excited about new developments we will release during the next 12 months and I am confident these will continue to keep Europlacer as the first choice for true, high-productivity SMT assembly.”

Europlacer has direct operations in the US, Europe and China, and continues to grow its market presence through a strategy of delighting customers and encouraging direct testimony and personal reference from existing customers to new prospects.

Europlacer has been developing machines for SMT electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s. After acquisition by Blakell Europlacer in 1991, the company moved away from split-axis to the inherently more capable X-Y architecture that underpins the company’s pick-and-place machines today. Europlacer’s policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest pick-and-place equipment. Europlacer designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of highly flexible SMT pick-and-place systems for the global electronics industry.
