MILPITAS, CA -- Creation Technologies today announced the opening of its second facility in the Silicon Valley. The manufacturing plant has been built to meet the growing demand of existing customers and the demand of new customers.
“We have long viewed the California market as key and are delighted to be strengthening our footprint in the region to support and grow our customer base,” said president and chief executive Arthur Tymos. “The region's economic environment and sophisticated, progressive OEMs will enable us to continue to expand on our core capabilities in growth markets such as Medical Diagnostics, Communications, and Environment & Security.”

The new plant more than doubles Creation Technologies’ manufacturing capacity in Silicon Valley. The custom-built facility is located at 1873 Barber Lane in Milpitas, and boasts over 79,000 sq. ft. of space.

The news was first reported by CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY in March.

“In 2011 we welcomed several new customers into our existing Santa Clara business unit and almost doubled our revenues. We are extremely excited to be building a new facility with the space and capacity to meet our commitment to both current and future customers,” said David Longshore, general manager, Creation Technologies—Santa Clara.

Creation had sales of $574 million last year, good for a top 10 ranking in North America and 24th globally, according to the CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY Top 50.

Creation has been manufacturing in California since 2006, when it acquired Asemtec. The EMS firm later acquired ProWorks, in 2008.

This latest endeavor is one in a string of recent plant expansions for the company. Creation also added 18,000 sq. ft. to its Mississauga, Canada, site, 11,000 sq. ft. to its Dallas site, and moved into a new 75,000 sq. ft. building in Changzhou, China.




Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
