STI moved into its newly constructed facility on December 19, 2008. Located at 261 Palmer Rd. in Madison, Ala., the new building is 54,000 sq. ft. as opposed to the 18,000 sq. ft. of its previous location. The company plans to host an open house at the new facility on January 29, 2009.
STI is positioning itself for marked growth in 2009 and as a result has increased capabilities in all divisions. The Training Services Department is adding a third classroom and has plans to hire two additional instructors soon after the first of the year. Two of the classrooms will be set up to provide advanced hands-on training while the third will be a dedicated lecture classroom.
The Sales and Distribution division will continue to support the electronics manufacturing industry with excellent customer service, local stock and a well trained outside sales force. A new addition to the sales department is the Industrial Tools and Supplies line. STI has hired a sales manager as well as three new outside sales representatives to support this new venture.
The Engineering Services Division has had a tremendous year and is in the process of setting up a complete new SMT manufacturing line. This will enable STI to more efficiently serve its customer base as well as add new and expanded capabilities. In the Analytical/Failure Analysis Lab, STI has added a RADWAG MXA-5 microbalance with a maximum capacity/readability of 5 g/1 �g, providing increased weighing capabilities. In addition, Microelectronics has almost doubled the size of its Class 1000 Cleanroom and now includes conformal coating capabilities.
STI has plans to implement additional equipment in the near future and continue to add capabilities and staff throughout 2009.
