American Auto-Matrix to outsource PCB production
To meet increasing demand for American Auto-Matrix Building Automation controllers, the company says it is outsourcing production of assembled Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) to Sunburst Electronics.
The announcement follows the recent AHR Expo where the AspectFT® Building Automation Integration and Energy Control Solution was awarded the AHR Innovation Award 2015 for building automation. It also follows the acquisition of American Auto-Matrix by Cylon Energy Inc., growing the company to 240 dealers worldwide and bringing a new range of building automation controls and energy management technology to the American Auto-Matrix portfolio of products and services.
Sean Giblin, CEO of American Auto-Matrix, said “At American Auto-Matrix, we are very proud of our heritage of ‘American Made’ products and are delighted to be in a position to keep manufacturing of our assembled PCB’s in North America by transferring production of them to local Pennsylvanian company, Sunburst Electronics”
Product production processes using the Sunburst manufactured PCBs will remain at the American Auto-Matrix facility in Export, PA, which the company says will ensure continued quality and standards.
“This move is part of our commitment to investing in the continued success of the American Auto-Matrix business and presents greater scope for introducing new technologies and future growth and market expansion by enabling us to react quicker to increasing demand, accelerating the process of bringing new products to market, and providing enhanced support and services to our dealers,” said Giblin.
