Jeff Hughes vice president of Hughes Circuits explained, “We have always been fans of the Excellon platform, and have been for years!  The products we produce require the utmost in quality and accuracy.  It made sense when deciding add to our capital equipment plan that we upgrade, and get the benefit of familiarity, and ease of use.  These machines are welcome additions to Hughes Circuits Inc.  Looking forward to the rewards the increased capacity will bring.”

Catching up with EISO Enterprises’ President Gary Chien

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.
