Eltek Intends to Build Second Production Facility


Reading time ( words)

Eltek Ltd., a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, provided an update regarding its intention to apply to the Israel Land Authority (ILA) for an allocation of  land in the north of Israel where Eltek intends to build a second production facility.

The Ministry of Economics approved a recommendation to the ILA to allocate land in the north of Israel to Eltek without the need for a bidding process. Such recommendation provides for an exemption period of 24 months from the requirement to acquire the land by means of a tender. The land development cost is expected at a 30% discount to prevailing market prices. Following receipt of the Ministry of Economics recommendation, our board of directors instructed management to apply to the ILA for the necessary permits and to finalize the terms of a long term pre-paid lease. 

Eli Yaffe, Eltek's CEO, commented: "We are considering expanding to a new and second advanced facility within a few years. This is a major part of our long term and strategic roadmap in order to grow and accelerate the expansion of our business."

Eltek is at an early stage of this process and there can be no assurance that it will obtain all the necessary permits for a new plant from the ILA, or that it will be able to finance such project.

12/07/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Faced with the choice between a real or virtual event, Bill Wilkie took a calculated risk. It has been many long months since members of the Institute of Circuit Technology had gathered together under one roof, but a fair-sized bunch of industry stalwarts braved the weather and the threat of COVID, descended on the Manor Hotel in Meriden, UK, on Nov. 30, and applauded Bill’s decision to go live. They were not disappointed; the program was superb, the atmosphere upbeat, and the networking opportunity priceless.

EIPC Technical Snapshot Review: Semi-additive Processes

12/01/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The development of ultra-high-density PCBs and packaging substrates using semi-additive and additive manufacturing processes was the theme of the 13th Technical Snapshot webinar presented by EIPC on November 24. It was introduced and moderated by technical director Tarja Rapala-Virtanen. Daniel Schulze, application engineering manager at Dyconex in Switzerland, gave the opening presentation, “Advanced high density rigid packaging substrates for RF and miniaturization.” He explained that with their long-established capabilities in ultra-high-density PCBs in flex, rigid-flex and rigid multilayer technologies, it was logical for Dyconex to apply their expertise to the development of specialist IC substrates.
