East/West Manufacturing Enterprises Adds New Equipment for 2X Additional Capacity

East/West Manufacturing Enterprises

East/West Manufacturing Enterprises (East/West), an Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) company serving the OEM industry for over 15 years, has completed the purchase of SMT equipment that doubles the company’s previous capacity for PCB Assembly services. The company has also hired additional personnel to meet rising customer demand for higher volume runs, Box Builds, electronic assemblies, and ICT/FCT testing.

In the first quarter of 2018, East/West deployed new Surface Mount Technology (SMT) equipment throughout its SMT lines. The new equipment adds to the company’s previous two SMT lines, adding a third line while allowing flexibility to increase the capacity of the existing lines by 2X.

During the quarter, the company also hired several key employees. The new hires build upon other recent new employees that have increased company personnel by 40 percent over the last year to support business growth. East/West now maintains two full shifts to handle customer project workloads.

“2018 is off to a fast start,” said Andy Salo, President of East/West Manufacturing Enterprises. “Last year we completed our ISO 9001:2015 certification, during a period where we were seeing more demand from both current and new customers. Doubling our equipment capacity and bringing on new resources has helped us meet the additional demand we are experiencing. We look forward to working closely with our customers to exceed their expectations throughout the year.”
