Photo Stencil Sells Guadalajara, Mexico Laser Stencil Business to Management Team

Dec 13, 2015

Will continue to manufacture laser stencils and represent Photo Stencil's electroform stencils

Photo Stencil, LLC, a leading full-service provider of high-performance stencils and tooling, announces that it has sold the Photo Stencil business in Guadalajara, Mexico to the facility's management team, Francisco Lujano and Armando Berumen. Photo Stencil's Mexico facility produces laser-cut stencils and will continue to sell both the laser-cut stencils they manufacture and electroform stencils that will be made by Photo Stencil in its new Golden, CO facility.

"This sale is in keeping with our strategy to concentrate on producing high-end stencils and stencils for the semiconductor industry," said Eric Weismann, CEO of Photo Stencil. "Today's technology is being driven by more complex and densely packed boards, smaller devices, and more challenging applications. Our laser direct imaging capabilities can create extremely accurate stencils for solder paste printing of PCBs and for high density interconnects, BGAs, CSPs, and flex circuits. And, we're about to move into our new manufacturing plant that's equipped with cleanrooms, R&D facilities, and is set to deploy the most advanced processes for producing exacting stencils."

"Demand for our laser-cut stencils has increased significantly," said Francisco Lujano, former GM and new owner of Photo Stencil's Mexico facility. "Our Mexico plant has the latest laser cutting equipment with automated optical inspection. Armando and I are excited about this new opportunity and will continue to produce the highest performing laser-cut stencils available."
