FCT Assembly is pleased to announce the 20th anniversary of the Fine Line Stencil division. Shortly after FCT Assembly was established in 2004, Fine Line Stencil was acquired.

At the time of the acquisition, Memphis, TN was a strong stencil manufacturing location due to the industrial area and proximity to the main FedEx hub and headquarters. This enables Fine Line Stencil to cut and ship stencils up to midnight same day. Today, FCT Assembly’s stencil division, Fine Line Stencil, has various stencil facilities throughout the United States including Tennessee, Texas and California.

Fine Line Stencil is the sole licensee of the NanoSlic® Coating Technology. The coated stencils are manufactured at the Memphis, TN location. The NanoSlic® Gold coating is based on a proprietary application process that coats both the underside of the stencil and aperture walls offering superior paste transfer efficiency.

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