E-NEWSLETTER | SUMMER 2019

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
 

American Standard Circuits continues to grow in many ways. First, it looks like we are experiencing another growth year in terms of customer acquisition. While 2018 was a banner year for sales growth, 2019 is on a path to exceed last year’s sales.  We do not take this success lightly and know how important it is to not only listen to our customers, but more importantly to HEAR them.  We hear you loud and clear.

When you asked us to increase our flex and rigid-flex capabilities, we committed to doing what needed to be done to make that happen and since last year our flex and rigid-flex production is up substantially. When you told us that not only did you need more flex and rigid-flex, but that you needed them to be fast, we heard you and now offer quick turn flex PCBs in just ten days. Other things our customers wanted included FaradFlex PCBs, UL for Megtron 4 and Megtron 6 laminate types, and more accurate drilling and routing capabilities and we now provide all of these capabilities.  And finally, we heard you when you said you needed ASC to be qualified for the Automotive Specification IATF16949 and are pleased to announce that we will have gained this certification by summer’s end.  When we communicate as a team, we both win in the end.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Sincerely,

Anaya Vardya
CEO, American Standard Circuits

Buy Based on Value, Not Price

There are only two ways to buy PCBs; the first is based on price, which is the wrong way because it encourages a very shallow relationship based on just one thing—the price of the boards; and the second, and right, is based on value. A great company should understand what it means to buy value.
