Sorrento Networks Selects NBS as Global Manufacturing Partner

Sep 08, 2009

SANTA CLARA—Aug. 17, 2009 — Sorrento Networks (, a global provider of metro optical access solutions, has named NBS ( as its global manufacturing partner. NBS, an electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider headquartered in Northern

California, will now provide configure to order (CTO) services including final assembly, test, order fulfillment and return materials authorization (RMA) functions for Sorrento’s GigaMux product line.

Founded in 1999 as a PCB layout specialist, NBS has maintained continuous growth and a unique business model that delivers leading edge services in design engineering, manufacturing, and test and verification to a large and diverse customer base serving all industry segments and geographies. Their acquisition in 2009 of CompServ has since enabled the company to expand the scope of those services to include advanced supply chain logistics, custom products sourcing and a wide array of test services.

“We are very pleased to welcome Sorrento Networks into the NBS fold,” remarked Michael Maslana, President & CEO of NBS. “This partnership further diversifies our already large customer base, while expanding our service offerings. It also provides us the impetus to acquire a second manufacturing facility adding an additional 10,000 square feet to our existing 40,000. We are continuing to evolve our business model, and in so doing, the future of EMS.”

Sorrento Networks’ CEO Jim Nevelle further explained, “We have teamed up with NBS in order to continue to focus our resources on core competencies and better serve our global customer base. NBS will lend its manufacturing expertise to help alleviate resources so we can devote more of our time to research and development and sales efforts that are directly aligned with our customers’ needs.”
