FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE Expansion in NC.
Wake Forest, North Carolina � August 29, 2007� SMT Resource Group LLC (SMTR), has just expanded their facility in NC to increase their machine restoration capability. Traditionally SMTR has focused on Fuji and Panasonic in the Temple Texas facility. The expansion in Wake Forest will add Siemens and Universal capability. SMTR is staffing the facility with OEM experts;
� Dennis Stever, 23 year veteran of Universal Field Service Management, has been appointed Technical Center Manager for the newly expanded N.C. facility.
� We recently also hired, Tommy Turner, a former Siemens Sr. Service and refurbishment expert, to lead the Siemens equipment restoring activities in SMTR�s Wake Forest Tech Center.
� Greg Frazier, former Fuji Regional Service Manager, recently the owner of his own FUJI service business, will be the Manager of SMTR newly formed Field Service Div. to service SMT equipment users on site. SMTR lead by Greg is setting up a field service organization to handle customer factory decommissions, functional restorations and equipment PM�s in our customer�s facilities.
The plan is to build a new facility larger on property reserved on Capital Blvd north of Raleigh, until then we do not plan to move all activities from Temple TX.
SMTR has made considerable investment in the peripheral equipment business (feeders, spare and conveyors) in Temple. SMTR is gradually increasing this web based spare parts business to support users of equipment which are not efficiently supported by OEMs.
SMT Resource�s recently expanded North Carolina Technical Center is located in Wake Forest, north of Raleigh, and includes the company�s administrative offices. The Texas Technical Center in Temple, has all conveyors, feeders and spare parts. SMT Resource has over 100 major pieces of equipment in inventory.
SMT Resource will sell, integrate and provide support and service for both new and restored electronics assembly equipment to achieve best in class selection for their customers.
