MILWAUKEE, WI – In its 60th year in electronics manufacturing services, MEC has returned to its original name of Milwaukee Electronics.

During the past 15 years, Milwaukee Electronics expanded its EMS operations to include facilities in Milwaukee; Portland, OR, and Tecate, Mexico, plus an international purchasing office in Singapore, tech centers in Pune, India, and design centers in Corvallis, OR and Milwaukee, WI.

In 2003, its Screaming Circuits business unit was created as a standalone quickturn prototype service. Around the same time, the company formalized its design engineering group, and more recently a custom motor and controls design group.

The company said it is not changing its management or structure.

Milwaukee Electronics designs and manufactures circuit board assemblies for the medical, transportation, military, HVAC and other industries.






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.
