Reading time ( words)

Eltek Ltd., a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, announced today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Eli Yaffe, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Our third quarter results reflect a reduction in working days during this quarter, compared to the number of working days in the third quarter of 2020. In addition, we incurred higher expenses due to the strength of the New Israeli Shekel ("NIS") compared to the US$ during the third quarter."

"We are conducting several R&D programs in order to keep our position as an innovative industry leader. In addition, we invested $1.4 million in new equipment during the first nine months of 2021. We continue to invest in new advanced manufacturing equipment that will strengthen our manufacturing capabilities and increase our competitiveness by implementing improved production processes and adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies," added Mr. Yaffe.

"Eltek has an improved balance sheet and cash flow, with a positive working capital of $12.5 million as of September 30, 2021 and operating cash flow of $3.4 million in the first nine months of 2021. We are making the necessary operational adjustments to expand our business, improve customer satisfaction, increase revenues and return to the trend of improved operational results," concluded Mr. Yaffe.

All Flex Discusses Merger and New Medical Applications

11/19/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I recently spoke with Jamin Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing at All Flex Flexible Circuits in Minnesota. We discussed the company’s recent merger with Printed Circuits Inc., and some creative new flex applications, including flexible heaters and catheters for the medical field. As Jamin explains, "It’s always interesting to see different technologies amongst different companies. We’re working on a few new applications and products, like being able to do some fine lines and flex materials, but with large format, a longer format than usual. Some of their capabilities with lasering and fine features really help with our long flex capability; when we merge the two, we see a new market being created for that technology."
