PEACHTREE CITY, GA – CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY today announced the winners of its 2022 Service Excellence Awards (SEAs) for electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers and electronics assembly equipment, materials and software suppliers.

In the small-company category, RBB Systems won for technology; BESTProto won for dependability/timely delivery, responsiveness, manufacturing quality, flexibility and overall satisfaction; Kodiak Assembly Systems won for dependability/timely delivery; and Revco won for value for the price.

“Service comes in many forms, but for so many companies it is the differentiator for sustaining long-term and mutually beneficial supplier-customer relationships,” said PCEA president Mike Buetow, in presenting the awards. “This is not an easy award to win. It requires daily commitment to excellence, because the judges are the entrants’ own customers.”

Customers of SEA participants rated each company on a scale of 1 (poor) to 7 (best in class) in seven service categories.

This is the 30th year CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY has sponsored the awards program.
