ZURICHCicor Group is merging its Cicor Printed Circuit Boards and Cicor Microelectronics divisions into a single unit: Advanced Microelectronics & Substrates. The move comes after Microelectronics has failed to make significant progress over the past two years, the firm says.

Pascal Keller, executive VP, will head the new division. He has been in charge of the Cicor Printed Circuit Boards division since 2009.

Also, Cicor Electronic Solutions and Cicor Asia divisions will be merged into Electronic Solutions. The division will be headed by Erich Trinkler, executive VP, who has been leading Cicor Electronic Solutions since 2011. The Asia unit includes printed circuit board assembly, mold design and injection molding. The consolidated Electronic Solutions division will offer a range of electronic manufacturing services.

Gim Hong Sng, current executive VP of the Asia division, and Heinz Gloor, current executive VP of the Microelectronics division, take on new roles within the Cicor Group as of Jan. 1 and will no longer be part of the executive board.

Changes will take effect Jan 1.




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.
