Insulectro is moving its Silicon Valley branch operation from Mountain View to San Jose, CA, a move that puts its warehouse closer to its customers for better service.

Insulectro President and CEO Patrick Redfern stated, “Our new facility on Paragon Drive in northern San Jose provides 27,000 sf of warehouse space and an additional 4,000 sf of fabrication capability. This increased space will allow significant upgrades in processing systems and procedures that will improve our ability to service the changing needs of our Bay area customers.

“Our PumaFast program focuses on keeping the right materials on our shelves for the immediate usage of our customers. Everyday materials that are needed every day,” Redfern continued.

Insulectro Vice President of Operations Jeff Mason added, “Our FastTrack initiative moves Quick Turn orders significantly faster through the fabrication and order fulfillment processes. It will speed up and streamline both our delivery and Will Call response times.

“When you see our highly recognizable PumaFast™ Sprinter van in your area you’ll know Insulectro is speeding an order to a customer,” Mason concluded.

Insulectro has been the dominate distributor for PCB materials in the Bay area for the past 45 years from its Mountain View location. This new facility will better serve the growth the company has experienced in both the PCB and Printed Electronics markets with further space for expansion as business continues to grow.
