The fact that Inc. magazine included VirTex Assembly for the second straight year in its annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies last month was no surprise to Brad Heath, the CEO of VirTex.

We take great pride in being able to minimize the market introduction cycle

Heath has witnessed first hand how VirTex ( has emerged as a leader in the electronic manufacturing services (EMS) market by satisfying the needs of its clients.

"We understand that these companies may want us to manufacturer 1,500 units one month and 100 the next," said Heath. "We offer the kind of flexibility that is unheard of in our industry."

Include VirTex's commitment to quality and technology on its production lines and it is little wonder that customers are lining up to work with the company. VirTex provides electronic assembly and test, box build and order fulfillment services. Their offerings include surface mount and through hole assembly, system level integration and burn in and test services. They will even direct ship to the client's end customer using their fulfillment and logistics support.

In addition to its recognition by Inc., the company recently announced a bevy of customer wins, including:

BPM Microsystems ( in Houston, a supplier of engineering and production device programmers as well as the leading supplier of automated programming systems to the semiconductor and electronics industries. Tim Nolte, director of global marketing for the company, said, "VirTex makes it easy for us to fulfill our mission, which is to program semiconductors of the highest quality at a competitive cost per device. VirTex has been especially beneficial to us as we have responded to the needs of companies that serve the automotive, consumer, industrial and aerospace industries." Nolte added that "VirTex is the ideal partner for us. The company is highly adept at taking engineering designs and producing products that perfectly reflect those designs in a highly cost-effective manner."

Uson ( in Houston, a pioneer of automated leak detection equipment for the automotive, medical device, pharmaceutical and general engineering industries, has more experience in these specialized fields than any other company in the world. Martin Bradford, Vice President of Operations for the company, said that "Because of the volatile nature of the oil and gas industry, there is a powerful demand for highly reliable products that can be delivered immediately. VirTex has been very responsive on both counts, handing off a quality product in a timely fashion."

Tanisys Technology ( is an Austin-based leader in high performance, cost-efficient semiconductor test equipment. John Bennett, the President and CEO, said, "VirTex is the perfect match for our technology. The company is highly responsive to our specific needs and delivers on its promise of quality and reliability. VirTex has become our partner in every sense of the word."

While the aforementioned examples are established companies, VirTex is also well-versed at meeting the needs of young companies introducing their products for the first time.

"We take great pride in being able to minimize the market introduction cycle," said Heath. "Our team is skilled at managing a client's prototype, NPI (new product introduction), and production needs without skipping a beat."

The company's strides have not gone unnoticed. Heath and VirTex were also in the news last month when Heath was profiled by SciVestor, a research and advisory company. SciVestor published the video interview at the following link:
