SANTA ANA, CA – PCB manufacturer TTM Technologies Inc. reported first-quarter 2008 net sales of $174.1 million, up 3.9% year-over-year.
Net income was $14.4 million, up 21.5% compared to the same period last year, according to TTM.

For the PCB manufacturing segment, first quarter net sales were $148.7 million, up a slight 0.8% sequentially.

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.
