FCT Assembly Celebrates a Decade of Growth

Jan 08, 2014

 Mike Scimeca

FCT Assembly today announced that the company will celebrate 10 years in business in 2014. Founded in April 2004 by Mike Scimeca as a spin-off of Florida CirTech, FCT was established to supply the electronics assembly market with laser cut SMT stencils and high-quality solder products.

Shortly after FCT Assembly was established in 2004, Fine Line Stencil was acquired. Memphis, TN was a strong stencil manufacturing location due to the industrial area and proximity to the main FedEx hub and headquarters, allowing Fine Line Stencil to cut and ship stencils up to midnight same day.

In 2005, A-Laser was acquired to serve the precision laser cutting and processing market. FCT’s vast experience with stencil lasers was a perfect fit for the addition of A-Laser. In 2006, FCT Assembly acquired the first license in North America for Nihon Superior’s SN100C® lead-free solder. In April 2008, FCT Recovery was started to offer a responsible source for recycling solder dross and electronic scrap from the electronic assembly process.

Today, FCT Assembly has four divisions: FCT Solder, FineLine Stencil, A-Laser, FCT Recovery and seven facilities across the country. The company that started with 10 employees and $1.5 million annual sales 10 years ago has grown to 70 employees and $15 million annual sales today.

The entire Scimeca family has been very involved in the entire business for the past decade. Tom Scimeca is president of Florida CirTech and Mike Scimeca is president of FCT Assembly, and they both share ownership on the boards of each company. Their father, Roger Scimeca, also is very much involved in the business and acts as a project manager, always finding better ways to operate the business more efficiently.
