Sierra Proto Express Opens East Coast Office

Sierra hires Key people to service former Photocircuits accounts

Sunnyvale, California - Ken Bahl, President of Sierra Proto Express, the printed circuit board industry's leader in high technology quick turn PCBs, announced the opening of an East Coast office in Atlanta, Georgia, today.

The office will house the newly hired team consisting of former Key Photocircuits technical sales and front-end people in order to specifically service Photocircuits accounts.

With locations in Sunnyvale, California, and Chanute, Kansas, as well as offshore capabilities, Sierra offers all its customers, including former Photocircuits automotive and non-automotive customers, a complete PCB solution

Mr. Bahl commented: We are putting together the best team possible to service those accounts that were left behind when Photocircuits closed their doors. Our goal is to provide these customers with the familiarity and comfort of a team they are used to working with while using our facilities to fabricate their products. We want to make it as easy as possible for these customers to move their business to Sierra. On the same token we are putting together a team of experienced professionals who are experts in servicing these customers so that they can help us to develop a strong solution to those companies who were former Photocircuits customers. This is a win for everyone.

Added Rex Green, formerly of Photocircuits and now the new General Manager of Sierra Proto Express' East coast office: I see this working very well. We will fabricate the high-tech and quick-turn products in Sunnyvale and the domestic volume mid- technology products in our Midwest facility; we can also hand off the high volume, more competitively priced work to our offshore outsourcing partners. We will even have an automotive solution for those customers who require automotive design and prototype fabrication.

Sierra can also do some high-tech work that we could not do at Photocircuits and this is a real plus. We are providing a very powerful solution to those customers that Photocircuits left behind.
