Vancouver, B.C. – December 12, 2012 - Creation Technologies, a leader in providing tailored electronics manufacturing and design solutions to OEMs, has been named EMS Company of the Year by Circuits Assembly Magazine.
Headquartered in British Columbia, Canada, Creation Technologies was selected based on its “long history of performance excellence”, “track record of growth to which few others can compare”, a cellular manufacturing model that breaks the mold, and its people- and customer-centric focus.
The distinction is bestowed annually on EMS companies that have demonstrated profitability and sustained excellence among their peers in the electronics industry.
Said Mike Buetow, Editor-in-Chief of Circuits Assembly Magazine, “Creation Technologies was a surprise, and in more ways than one.”
“We've been watching Creation Technologies with interest for several years. The company's track record proves consistent growth and profitability are not foreign concepts to North American manufacturers. What’s remarkable is that Creation Technologies has never closed a site due to a lack of business. For a large Western-based EMS of its size, that’s unheard of, and speaks well to its due diligence, management and execution.”
Through this execution and acquisition, Creation has grown 36% over the last five years following a highly diversified model in which its top three customers make up just 10% of its overall revenue. Including the company’s October 2012 acquisition in Mexico of Aisling Industries, Creation is now the largest privately held North American-based EMS company and fourth-largest in the world.
“We’re honored to be recognized as 2012 EMS Company of the Year by Circuits Assembly Magazine, a publication with a track record of offering great insight to the electronics manufacturing industry,” said Andy Hyatt, Creation’s Executive VP Business Development. “We’ll continue to strive to build the premier relationships that enable us to deliver customized solutions that deliver value to our customers and our communities.”
