Segue Manufacturing Services Expands Operations into Asia

December 17, 2010

Acquisition of Sanbor Interconnect bolsters Segue’s leadership in the OEM contract manufacturing space offering expertise in over molded cables and high volume assemblies

For Immediate Release

Lowell, Mass. November 29, 2010 Segue Manufacturing Services (Segue) has announced it has acquired Sanbor Interconnect in Xiamen, China. The acquisition includes a 55,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Xiamen, China, and an engineering and sales office in Allentown, PA. With the expansion, Segue can offer its customers the cost benefits of off-shore manufacturing as well as additional manufacturing capabilities including “smart cable assemblies” that incorporate integrated circuits and over molding, and high-volume assemblies such as electronic sub-assemblies and box builds.

Segue Asia will benefit from Asia’s lower cost structures and manufacturing capabilities and is complemented by engineering and manufacturing facilities in the United States to ensure that Segue customers receive the best quality product at a cost competitive price. “More and more often our customers are competing in a global, competitive environment. To help our customers thrive, we now offer the benefits of offshore manufacturing with a local approach to customer service and support,” said Peter Frasso, President and CEO at Segue. “Sanbor has received quality awards by a number of Fortune 500 clients. Its quality systems and added capabilities will benefit our current customer base and offer us entrance into new markets and applications such as medical device, aviation, professional sound system and data communication.”

With the expansion, Segue provides the complete solution for complex electro-mechanical assemblies, specializing in manufacturing products that are low to medium volume with a high mix of options and new product introduction in the United States, to high-volume, complex assemblies in Asia. Both locations operate in a streamlined and controlled manufacturing environment through the application of lean manufacturing and JIT/Demand flow principles. To ensure quality products and services, both locations have quality systems that are certified to ISO 9001-2008, ISO 13485, ITAR registered, CE, UL and CSA compliant and certified to IPC 620-A-WHMA and IPCJ-STD-001. In addition, our Xiamen location is certified to TS16949:2009.

“Offshore manufacturing can only be successful if you have a relationship with your contract manufacturer that is built on trust, honesty, and, most importantly, communication,” adds Bill Roderick, Vice President at Segue. “At Segue, we offer the best of both worlds; the opportunity to take advantage of low-cost, off-shore manufacturing while strengthening partnerships and communicating with our offices here in the States.”
