Sunnyvale, CA-Ken Bahl, president of Sierra Proto Express announced the acquisition of PC Boards Inc. in Chanute, Kansas.
"PC Boards has everything we need to actualize our future growth plans," stated Bahl. "They represent a perfect complement to what we do in Sunnyvale. We handle high- technology, small-volume, quick-turn products while PC Boards does the mid-volume, mid-technology product mix. Combined with PC Boards' offshore alliances, this will allow us to provide our customers with a complete PCB solution. The fact that both the Sunnyvale and Chanute plants are Mil-Spec certified will work in our favor as well."
Dennis Steinman, president and founder of PC Boards added, "This is an excellent opportunity for the people at PC Boards, which will be called Sierra Midwest. I am very excited about the growth plans that Ken and his team bring to Chanute. Through a series of acquisitions and roll-ups, the plan is to grow this facility to double its size in just a couple of years. This will be good for everybody-our customers, our employees, the community, the company and Sierra. It's a win all around."
