Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) February 9, 2010
ControlTek, a leading Electronic Manufacturing Services Provider based in Vancouver, Washington, is winning new business by featuring unmatched capabilities and commitment to service.
Between 2002 and 2008, ControlTek averaged 20% growth per year without any significant effort toward sales or marketing. But the 2009 downturn in the business climate impacted their overall numbers, and, in turn, company leadership started reaching out to prospective customers. President Andy LaFrazia and company leadership saw the downturn as an opportunity to ensure their capabilities in the electronics manufacturing services industry are known. Their vision is paying off.
“The results of our new marketing and sales strategy are promising. It has been very interesting to see how the market is responding to our offering,” says LaFrazia, “Many customers are surprised to learn of the broad services ControlTek offers and are intrigued by our ability to integrate with their business processes.”
Some of ControlTek’s latest projects include full product development for an HVAC company, a remote telemetry business with a breakthrough product, a biomedical company requiring FDA compliant product tracking, and an industrial company calling for full product delivered, tested, and ready to go. The latter being gained after the previous manufacturer was unable to provide extensive testing services; something ControlTek can do in house (http://controltek.com/capabilities/testdevelopment.php).
In business since 1971, ControlTek has the experience, facility, and electronics manufacturing processes in place to take ownership of the entire product development process (http://controltek.com/capabilities/index.php). With the new emphasis on marketing and sales, potential customer’s interests have surged and LaFrazia’s company is seeing more opportunity in key areas like: development, supply chain design, engineering support, prototyping, and box build assembly services which include complex circuit, mechanical and in-house cable assembly. With this mix of capabilities, ControlTek can deliver the complete product to market, from design and prototyping, to testing and ongoing support.
LaFrazia wants to advertise and re-emphasize ControlTek’s position as a low volume-high mix, full service electronics and PCB design and assembly manufacturer – an EMS industry rarity that has landed them valuable partners. “Every long term client, including our first major account that has been with us over 30 years, is a testament to our quality program. We receive a lot of interest from sharing our story with new prospective clients,” said LaFrazia.

Our Vancouver, Washington based facility serves a diverse client base representing industries such as: industrial, medical, semi-conductor, aerospace, military, and consumer products.
