Texas EMS Company Accepts BitCoin for Payment

May 14, 2014

 ACD, a leading supplier to the electronics industry, today announced that it has begun accepting BitCoins (BTC) for payment. BitCoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate without central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network.

ACD has always stayed ahead of the competition when it comes to customer service, technology and quality,” commented Scott Fillebrown, ACD President & CEO. “Now we are doing the same in the area of finance by being the first EMS company in the world to accept BitCoins for payment.”

Through many of its unique properties, BitCoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system. As a form of payment for products and services, BitCoin has seen growth, and merchants have an incentive to accept the digital currency because fees are lower than the 2-3 percent typically imposed by credit card processors.

ACD is an AS9100 and ISO 13485 certified full-service EMS company. The company’s services comprise complete board layout, DFM/DFA capability, printed circuit fabrication, component procurement, through-hole, SMT and part-on-part mixed technology assembly, box build, rework, flying probe, functional and JTAG test, and development.

ACD continues to streamline its process to ensure that customers receive a high-quality product in a timeframe that meets or exceeds their expectations. For more information about ACD, visit www.ACDUSA.com.
