Manufacturing

SMT offers world-class Electronic Manufacturing Services in conjunction with outstanding individualized customer service tailored to each customer’s unique needs. The ability to support all stages of the product life cycle allows SMT to provide value added solutions to drive improved quality, reductions in total cost, and expedited time to market.

SMT’s commitment to quality is evidenced by our ability to consistently meet the stringent requirements of the numerous quality control certifications we maintain. In addition to these standardized certifications, SMT routinely meets the exacting requirements of customer-defined qualification processes. And as one of our core values, every SMT employee understands that quality is unequivocally the most critical element in everything that SMT produces for our customers.

Off-Shore

In an effort to better meet customers’ needs, SMT provides offshore manufacturing partnerships in Malaysia and Switzerland to service low-volume, high-mix, and high-volume productions. Each offshore production is overseen by an SMT program manager to ensure the highest levels of quality and customer satisfaction. Partnering with global manufacturers allows SMT to continue to be cost effective while striving to meet customers’ global manufacturing needs.

Re-manufacturing

SMT’s remanufacturing services are designed to accommodate each customer’s unique requirements. The process allows for custom units to be examined, repaired and then sold by customers as refurbished units at a reduced cost to the end user. In addition to providing an opportunity for cost savings, remanufacturing also increases customer satisfaction and helps keep electronic equipment out of landfills. In most cases remanufacturing success comes from careful planning during earlier stages of product development to allow for easier diagnostic and repair procedures. If these factors are not taken into account early during design, the ability to perform remanufacturing work can be limited and/or cost prohibitive.
