Insulectro, the largest distributor of materials for use in printed circuits boards and printed electronics, has announced a new stocking program to ensure frequently used materials are readily available to fabricators.
The PumaFast program stocks the Heart of the Range laminates and prepregs in select Insulectro branch warehouses as noted on www.getpumafast.com, based on customer demand.
“Insulectro recognizes the importance of maintaining adequate inventory in strategically located stocking locations in north America," said Insulectro Vice President of Sales and Product Management Ken Parent. “We’ve listened to our customers and understand their challenges. When they need materials, they need them quick. Insulectro pledges to maintain reserves of the most popular laminates. Insulectro continues to work with the PCB fabricators, designers and OEMs through our ACT! program to educate the market on material specifications and availability.”
Among the PumaFast materials stocked are various thicknesses and constructions of 370HR, 185HR, 408HR and high-speed prepreg. In addition, Isola’s high-speed digital laminates – I-Tera MT40, Tachyon 100G, Astra, and I-Speed are also stocked in the program
Vital to the success of the PumaFast program is ready access to a customer portal on the website.
“The customer portal allows fabricators to see what we currently have on our shelves,” stated Dan Diesel, Vice President – Business Strategy and CIO for Insulectro, “Although the list is dynamic and changes as materials are allocated, it provides a great starting place for a purchase.”
“PumaFast and our portal are two ways Insulectro is making it easier for our customers to do business with us. That’s a priority for us,” Ken Parent added.
Insulectro is the largest supplier of PCB and printed electronics materials. With ten stocking locations across North America, Insulectro supplies advanced engineered materials manufactured by DuPont, Isola, LCOA, CAC, Inc., Pacothane, Oak Mitsui, Shikoku, Focus Tech Process Chemistry, and EMD Performance Materials.
