SALEM, NH — Emerald Electronics Manufacturing Services has acquired a pair of electronics manufacturing service providers, extending its range to the Midwest US and adding capacity in Southern California.
The deals also expand the EMS company's reach into the defense and medical end-markets.
Both Saline, MI-based Saline Lectronics and Brea, CA-based Veris Manufacturing are manufacturers of high-mix, low- to medium-volume printed circuit board assemblies and box-builds for high-reliability end markets, including industrial controls, aerospace and defense, and medical.
“All of us at Emerald are excited about the expanded geographic reach and manufacturing capabilities that Saline Lectronics and Veris Manufacturing bring to the mix,” said Vic Giglio, chief executive, Emerald EMS. “Their addition expands the Emerald EMS footprint into Southern California and the Midwest domestically, bringing increased geographic flexibility and expanded capacity to all of our customers.”
Founded in 2002, Saline is a full-service electronics solutions company with a 110,000-sq. ft .manufacturing facility providing engineering, printed circuit board assembly, testing, electro-mechanical box build, and direct fulfillment for complex, high-reliability electronic systems for the industrial controls, aerospace and defense, medical and oil industry end-markets.
Originally known as Quality Control Manufacturing, Veris was founded in 1987 by electrical engineer John Ivory, then purchased in 2001 by former CEO Bill McIlvene, who expanded the company from a “mom and pop” thru-hole shop to a world-class EMS provider. The company’s 40,000-sq. ft. facility provides high-reliability manufacturing and engineering services focused on the aerospace and medical end-markets.
“Our partnership with Emerald EMS will allow us to offer our customers expanded capacity as well as access to lower-cost options through Emerald’s Shenzhen, China, manufacturing facilities, while Emerald gains a strong Midwest presence,” said Mario Sciberra, president and CEO, SLI.
“Joining Emerald expands our access to new markets and provides investment opportunities for us to build on our capabilities in order to stay ahead of the demands of our growing customer base,” said Jay Cadler, president, Veris.
Day-to-day operations are expected to remain unchanged at both SLI and Veris, which will continue to operate under their existing brand names under the Emerald umbrella, Giglio said.
Emerald EMS was formed in July 2020 through the acquisitions of Data Ed and Bestronics by New Water Capital, a Chicago-based private equity firm.
