The combination solidifies Summit’s position as one of the largest privately-owned printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers in North America with a footprint that will now encompass eight manufacturing facilities. The acquisition significantly broadens the scope of Summit’s product offering while expanding the company’s business portfolio of key customers and end markets.
Summit Interconnect announced the acquisition of Royal Circuit Solutions with California operations in Hollister and Santa Ana and the affiliate Advanced Assembly located in Aurora, Colorado. The acquisition expands Summit’s PCB offering in rigid, flex, rigid/flex, and ATE PCBs, significantly strengthens engineering and service resources providing CAM, DFM/A, PCB design/layout, and also adds quick-turn, prototype SMT assembly services.
The combined company will provide best-in-industry use of software applications that integrate and automate engineering, stack-ups, quoting, production management, and customer interface. This highly developed platform will significantly improve speed and service to our valued customers.
Shane Whiteside, President, and CEO of Summit Interconnect, Inc. stated, “This combination aligns the Royal and Advanced quick-turn, a vertically integrated model with Summit’s differentiated production capabilities. Each entity brings capabilities to the Summit portfolio that will further strengthen our ability to serve our customers in both high-performance commercial and defense markets, as well as broaden our relationships into additional sectors. This is a very exciting milestone for Summit, Royal Circuits, and Advanced Assembly and we welcome our new employees to the Summit team.”
Milan Shah, Owner, and CEO of Royal Circuits commented, “We are very excited to align ourselves with the tremendous team at Summit and bring our automated software-powered approach to the Summit organization. Together, we will continue to build and scale a world-class company delivering technology solutions to solve the most complex printed circuit board challenges across all end markets.”
