Ovation Products Appoints New President

May 23, 2008

Bethlehem, PA - Advanced technology innovator, Ovation Products, today announced that Neil MacRaild has joined the company as President and will lead Ovation as it continues to expand its product lines, sales channels and global initiatives.

With over 20 years of experience in the electronics assembly and semiconductor packaging industries and having held posts in various regions worldwide, MacRaild brings vast knowledge of operations management, global logistics, engineering and business development to his new role. Most recently, MacRaild was Americas General Manager at DEK, where he directed and grew the machine, recurring revenue and stencil operations and had full profit and loss responsibility for the Americas business. As President of Ovation, MacRaild�s near-term priorities include quickly expanding current sales channels, broadening the company�s global reach and bringing new product innovations to market at an accelerated pace.

�In my view, Ovation Products is one of the most dynamic and creative organizations in the electronics industry today,� says MacRaild. �The inventiveness and anticipatory engineering skills of the team are quite impressive. With products such as Grid-Lok and HD Grid-Lok, Ovation has developed solutions to challenges that deliver simple, cost-effective alternatives for significant process improvement. I�m quite looking forward to bringing some of the product pipeline projects forward to market and changing the way manufacturers view current production methodologies.�

Most well-known for its pioneering Grid-Lok� reconfigurable board support technology, which boasts an installed base of over 3,000 units worldwide, Ovation Products prides itself on enhancing technological efficiency and developing process-complementing advances that reduce cost, save manufacturing time and, ultimately, enable higher-yield production. And, while Grid-Lok has garnered much of the spotlight, other Ovation technologies, such as universal squeegee technology Magna-Print�, have the potential to positively impact the industry as much � if not more than � Grid-Lok.

�Our core competency has always been identifying potential process or production shortfalls and engineering a solution that is cost-effective and easy to use,� comments Charles Moncavage, Chief Technology Officer for Ovation. �We are delighted to have Neil on board and I�m confident he will provide the operational management expertise and business development acumen we need to extend the Ovation brand and strengthen our global market position.�
