SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 6, 2013) - Absolute EMS, a leader in electronic manufacturing services to medical, automotive, green tech, and electronic OEM companies, announces a new partnership with Ionics EMS in the Philippines that significantly expands the manufacturing capacity and flexibility of both firms to accommodate the full range of volume demand from customers worldwide.
"We have partnered with Ionics EMS, the premier EMS provider in the Philippines, to increase our production capabilities and capacity to align with the needs of our most successful customers and their need to scale volumes quickly and easily to handle growth on demand," said President Dave Kichar, at Absolute EMS.
"Ionics and Absolute EMS have partnered to form a one-stop-shop solution. Together, both companies have the capability to design (industrial, mechanical and electrical), build quick-turn prototypes and NPI productions locally in the USA, and immediately scale high quality mass production at the best price. We provide customers with the best value and the fastest product development life-cycle," said Earl Qua, Vice President at Ionics Inc.
Absolute EMS's new manufacturing capability with Ionics EMS in the Philippines brings over 39 years of experience in electronic manufacturing services, a stable environment with a 2% turnover rate, IP protection based on US standards, and a one-stop-shop: from design to prototype to scalability of volume production.
Electronic manufacturing services located in the Philippines are at the forefront of a trend in leveraging the lower cost of labor (roughly 1/2 to 1/3 less than China), the stability of the labor force, the tax advantages, and the US-based legal standard for IP protection.
