Alta Manufacturing and Alta Via Technologies Partner on Technology Roadmap

Apr 21, 2009

FREMONT, CA � April 2009 � Alta Manufacturing, a leading contract manufacturer specializing in NPI to pilot production of complex PCBs, announces that it has formed a strategic alliance with Alta Via Technologies in an exclusive agreement to develop and implement an innovative technology roadmap that advances the state-of-the-art in the Layout, Fabrication, and Assembly of complex printed circuit boards.

Through the on-site integration of intellectual, design, and manufacturing components, this collaborative technology roadmap takes a unique and comprehensive approach to quality, ensuring optimal outcomes at each stage of the process. Utilizing a combination of new methodology, software and assembly equipment, the roadmap advances the state-of-the-art in quality and traceability in the PCB layout, fabrication, and assembly process.

Coincident with this announcement, and in support of its strategic alliance and integrative methodology, Alta Via announces that it will be relocating its Santa Clara, CA-based PCB layout group into the Alta Manufacturing facility in Fremont, CA. The companies will immediately begin working collaboratively on the development and implementation of the advanced technology roadmap.

Both companies share a long-term commitment to becoming a true industry resource. The companies expect to release additional details over the coming months in a series of announcements.

Alta Manufacturing CEO Craig Arcuri noted, �The opportunity to really integrate layout through fabrication and assembly under one common technology umbrella represents tremendous opportunities to reduce the cycle times across the board, while simultaneously and dramatically increasing the quality and traceability of products.�

Alta Via CEO John Corcoran added, �Effective integration of PCB layout fabrication and assembly is often tried, but rarely achieved. It is not a new thing, but in fact very few companies are able to actually create a true end-to-end integration that is effective. Working with Alta Manufacturing, we expect to succeed with this project and provide a significant benefit to the industry.�
