Electronic contract manufacturer Distron Corporation is poised to expand its business when it cuts the ribbon on a newly expanded production facility today.

Distron – who first announced plans to extend its plant, in Attleboro Falls, Massachusetts, earlier this year – says the addition has been driven by demand from its growing original equipment manufacturer (OEM) client base.

And Company president Robert Donovan said that the new systems in place has “totally overhauled our capability to provide Electromechanical Assembly on a higher level.”

The 12,500 square foot addition includes a new SMT assembly work center, as well an extended electroK mechanical work center, and a new stock room.

Distron has also equipped the plant with over $1m (€700,000) of new robotic placement and inspection equipment.

Among the new technology, is Mydata 100DX SMT equipment, an Ekra semi-automatic screen printer, a DEK fully automatic screen printer, a Heller RoHS reflow oven, a nexgen Yestech AOI machine and a new aqueous cleaner.

Don Petry, VP of sales and marketing at Distron, said: “Distron selected this system to support out growing operation and to help us continually expand our capabilities.

“The move exemplifies our focus on moving forward and providing for our customers – old and new – the very best electronic contract manufacturing services around.”

Looking to the future

The CMO now hopes the new additions will help launch it onto bigger playing fields.

Petry added: “These equipment and personnel acquisitions are one reason we’ve had the outstanding opportunity to stay strong and continue moving forward despite the challenges posed by the economy.”

He also pegged their steady growth over the years largely on achieving a thumbs up from medical device regulatory bodies the ISO 13485 medical device certification and international traffic in arms (ITAR) registration.

Petry continued: “With customers across the country looking for high quality and cost efficient electronic manufacturing services, we believe its all of these factors combined that have helped us continue to deliver what they’re looking for successfully.”
