Reading time ( words)

CAC, Inc., manufacturer of CAC (copper-aluminum-copper), has announced the acquisition of the assets used to manufacture ABC (aluminum-bonded-copper) and sheeted copper foil. Both CAC and ABC feature Oak Mitsui’s electrodeposited copper foil attached to one or both sides of a pristine aluminum separator in a cleanroom and are used to improve throughput and copper surface quality in the creation of multilayer printed circuit boards.

“The combination of CAC and ABC not only combines two respected brands in the industry but it strengthens the production capability of ‘protected’ outer-layer copper foil’,” CAC, Inc. President and CEO Patrick Redfern commented. “We are proud to expand the partnership with the world’s leading developer and producer of ED copper foil by consolidating the ABC and CAC operations into our southern California manufacturing facility.”

Oak Mitsui Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, John Blaber touted the acquisition. “CAC, Inc. is a fantastic home for our ABC product line. It provides continuity for this product and allows both Oak Mitsui and CAC, Inc. to focus of what we do best. It also streamlines the supply chain as both companies distribute their products through Insulectro, the PCB industry giant.”

Oak Mitsui is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsui Kinzoku, the world’s largest manufacturer of copper foils and high-performance products for the electronics industry. Headquartered in Hoosick Falls, New York, Oak-Mitsui specializes in the development and production of world class performance foils for copper clad laminates and Advanced Technology products.

“We welcome ABC copper foil to the CAC family. The acquisition is an indication of our resolve to help fabricators make better circuits” Redfern concluded.
