“The history of ACR Electronics is built upon a strong ethos to manufacture our own products and we are very proud to say that our range is made in the USA,” said John Nguyen, president of ACR Electronics, in a statement. “With this new investment, we have further enhanced our ability to maintain direct control over our entire manufacturing process, and ensure that the product quality, reliability and order lead time live up to the expectations of our customers. We have the ability to take an order and ship it in the same week without facing unexpected delays due to the technical and delivery issues of an outsourced manufacturer, unlike some other industry participants.”

The new SMT line at ACR consists of specially selected equipment, including Surface Mount i-Pulse M20 with new multi-conveyor system to provide highest large board handling capability and high feeder capacity, plus solder paste printer YCP10 and high-end optical inspection system YSi-V for advanced automated optical inspection of the circuit boards.

ACR is certified to AS9100 D and ISO-9001: 2008 standards.
