Ventec USA Prepares for Growth

Reading time ( words)

Starkey: Ray, I’m impressed by your CV. In my opinion, you have the ideal background for the job.

Young: What I can offer is 40 years’ experience in PCB fabrication. I started straight from high school and worked my way up the ladder from hands-on, shop-floor processing through plant management and general management to senior operations executive roles. And I have worked for some big-name companies supplying the high-technology, high-reliability electronics industry. I’ve got a lot of experience of AS9100C aerospace industry quality management systems, a lot of confidence in Ventec’s materials from a user viewpoint, and a clear appreciation of the high level of support that Southern Californian PCB fabricators demand of their suppliers.

Starkey: And what are your plans for the expansion of the Fullerton service centre?

Young: As well as doubling our panel-sawing capacity and installing clean-room cutting and packaging for pre-pregs, we plan to streamline our distribution channel to give the best possible value to customers in terms of quality, technology, service, and cost. We understand the high-mix, quick-turn nature of our market and can ship almost everything same-day.

Having a press facility, we can cater for the odd-ball requirement--whatever the diversity of material we hold in stock, someone will always want what we don’t have on the shelf. So we can manufacture small quantities of specialist and odd-form laminates, including VT-901 polyimide and a full range of IMS materials, on short lead times. And we’re not afraid of hard work!

Starkey: Thanks, Ray, Jack--a final word from you?

Pattie: It goes without saying that our absolute aim is to give the very best in customer satisfaction. Ventec USA’s outstanding reputation for responsive service and technical back-up continues to grow and we pride ourselves on quality and consistency across a very diverse range of laminate products.

Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

The industry news cycle seems to be picking up speed lately. Of course, 30 days into the quarter is about when public companies announce their results, and in the midst of this worldwide financial situation, we’ve got all eyes on anything coming out from our counterparts in the industry. I’ve noticed that global corporate results (Nan Ya PCB and TTM, in particular) do seem to be on everyone’s radar. In addition to financial news, trade shows are popping back up around the world—Europe, India, and a special report from editor Andy Shaughnessy, who took his own road trip to Raleigh, reporting on PCB Carolina, which had its own heyday this year.

I’ve been in Washington, D.C., most of this week, attending and reporting on the IPC Advanced Packaging Symposium. You’ll see more content from me in the weeks and months to come as I sort through and highlight the varied aspects of this ground-breaking event. If you’re in this industry, advanced packaging will affect you, make no mistake about it.
