Ventec USA Prepares for Growth

Reading time ( words)

Starkey: Ray, I’m impressed by your CV. In my opinion, you have the ideal background for the job.

Young: What I can offer is 40 years’ experience in PCB fabrication. I started straight from high school and worked my way up the ladder from hands-on, shop-floor processing through plant management and general management to senior operations executive roles. And I have worked for some big-name companies supplying the high-technology, high-reliability electronics industry. I’ve got a lot of experience of AS9100C aerospace industry quality management systems, a lot of confidence in Ventec’s materials from a user viewpoint, and a clear appreciation of the high level of support that Southern Californian PCB fabricators demand of their suppliers.

Starkey: And what are your plans for the expansion of the Fullerton service centre?

Young: As well as doubling our panel-sawing capacity and installing clean-room cutting and packaging for pre-pregs, we plan to streamline our distribution channel to give the best possible value to customers in terms of quality, technology, service, and cost. We understand the high-mix, quick-turn nature of our market and can ship almost everything same-day.

Having a press facility, we can cater for the odd-ball requirement--whatever the diversity of material we hold in stock, someone will always want what we don’t have on the shelf. So we can manufacture small quantities of specialist and odd-form laminates, including VT-901 polyimide and a full range of IMS materials, on short lead times. And we’re not afraid of hard work!

Starkey: Thanks, Ray, Jack--a final word from you?

Pattie: It goes without saying that our absolute aim is to give the very best in customer satisfaction. Ventec USA’s outstanding reputation for responsive service and technical back-up continues to grow and we pride ourselves on quality and consistency across a very diverse range of laminate products.

At the SMTA Atlanta Expo and Tech Forum, I spoke with NCAB Group Field Application Engineer Ramon Roche, who gave a presentation at the show titled, “Technical Trends in the Global PCB Industry.” Ramon and I discussed his presentation, the emerging technologies that have NCAB’s focus over the next few years, and why semi-additive processes may be the key to succeeding with ultra HDI technology.

EIPC Review: Ultra-high-density Interconnects, Thin-film Resistor Materials

05/10/2023 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
It’s been a little while since I first had the opportunity to review an EIPC Technical Snapshot webinar. This excellent series began in October 2020 when our industry was besieged by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has continued successfully as restrictions have lifted and provides an effective channel for the efficient sharing of relevant knowledge that complements the traditional live conferences. The 20th in the series, in December 2022, focused on environmental issues impacting the electronics industry. In early February, EIPC held its live Winter Conference in Lyon and now, by popular demand, the 21st Technical Snapshot fills a slot before the Summer Conference scheduled for mid-June in Munich.
