FCT Assembly Announces 5-Year Anniversary

Feb 06, 2009

GREELEY, CO �FCT Assembly announces its five-year anniversary. In 2004, Florida Cirtech decided to break off its assembly product division and start FCT Assembly. Since that time, FCT has seen growth of more than 400 percent.

FCT's plan was to merge the assembly product division with a reputable stencil house to sell the synergy of both paste and stencil. In the first year, FCT Assembly acquired FINE LINE STENCIL (FLS), allowing FCTA to combine the strengths of its solder line along with FLS's stencil line. The company felt that it had a unique advantage with the license of Nihon Superior's SN100C technology and wanted to start to leverage other products with this technology.

�More importantly, FCT Assembly is becoming a recognized name in the solder/stencil market. We feel that we have all the products needed to grow even in a down economy. Still our focus will be to continue development on both the paste and stencil product lines using our combined expertise of stencils, paste and surface finishes,� said Mike Scimeca, President and CEO, FCT Assembly.

From this knowledge came the newest stencil technology on the market, the Ultraslic Stencil. The Ultraslic Stencil will revolutionize the stencil industry by allowing improved performance over electroform technology for a reduced price and delivery time. The Ultraslic stencil can achieve good paste release down to a surface area ratio of 0.45.

As a licensee of Nihon Superior's patented technology, FCT manufactures and sells the leading lead-free alloy, SN100C. FCT Solder is the original licensee of Nihon Superior's technology, and knows SN100C and its applications better than anyone in the industry.

About FCT Assembly

The assembly products are manufactured in the Greeley, Colo. plant and the stencils are manufactured in the Beaverton, Ore., Memphis, Tenn., and Greeley, Colo. facilities. The stencils can be fabricated by both laser cutting and chemical etch. The company also makes precision parts in its A-Laser division, which is located in Beaverton, Ore.
