Between 2008 and 2014, EMLinQ has continued to witness significant growth. With the additional capacity that derived from the purchase of our brand new Hitachi G4/G5 assembly line, we can service your prototype runs and your high volume requirements in a timely manner. Continuous investment in new and modern equipment allows EMLinQ to reduce cost and help to ensure that our partners compete successfully in their respective market segments. Earlier this year, EMLinQ acquired the assets of a cable assembly business. This has given EMLinQ the ability to provide additional value added services. From a pure business perspective, EMLinQ is pleased to announce the signing of several agreements this year that will further propel our growth in 2014 and onwards.
EMLinQ has formed a strategic partnership with one of the foremost contract manufacturers in the world. With this relationship, we are proud to be able to offer our customers a roadmap that covers both technical and volume requirements by spanning all continents.
As part of its plan to increase automation and manage labor costs more effectively; EMLinQ embarked on a systematic and ongoing path of equipment purchases. Significant capital investment was made in the company in 2008 and business continued to expand in various market segments.
EMLinQ LLC was founded in 2007 on the premise that "MADE in AMERICA" would become increasingly important in the years to come. As Asian manufacturing costs continued to rise, and advanced automation reduced overall labor production costs, more companies would be seeking local sources to help them address a higher degree of market segmentation and personlalization. With time to market becoming critical to the success or failure of product launches, a shorter supply chain was becoming more attractive to companies. With lower cost benefits and overall better quality; on-shore manufacturing would continue to gain momentum for the years to come.
