Nov 05, 2009

Fine Line Stencil, a division of FCT Assembly and a leading manufacturer of stencil products, announces that it has been appointed as a DEK stencil franchisee, serving customers in the state of California.

As a part of DEK’s stencil franchise network, FINE LINE STENCIL will produce high-accuracy laser-cut stencils in accordance with DEK’s established manufacturing principles and rigorous quality standards. This, in combination with FINE LINE’s stencil production expertise, ensures customers will enjoy technically robust stencil products and a local, accessible partner that can provide fast, on-time delivery and quick-turn capability.

Commenting on the new franchise agreement, FCT Assembly’s President and CEO, Mike Scimeca, explained, “This new relationship with DEK effectively expands our capacity and extends our geographic reach in the very important California region. DEK is the authority on screen printing processes and we are delighted to have secured this franchise arrangement with such a prestigious technology leader.”

In addition to traditional laser-cut stainless steel stencils, FINE LINE manufactures a full portfolio of stencil technologies to address the demands of modern assembly processes. DEK’s award-winning VectorGuard frameless stencil system will also be part of FINE LINE’s offering in California.
