Expanded relationship provides mutual business opportunities
Building on a business relationship that spans more than three decades, Henkel Adhesive Technologies announces that The Morey Corporation (Morey) has named the company its primary partner for supplying solder and adhesive materials for the production of advanced electronic technology. Located in suburban Chicago, Morey utilizes more than 15 Henkel products, including its most recent innovation, LOCTITE® GC 10 solder paste, within its 24/7, 240,000 square-foot manufacturing facility.
“LOCTITE GC 10 temperature stable solder paste was the catalyst for expanding our longstanding relationship,” says Morey Technical Steward, Chris Murphy. “The significant growth in our M2M business demands that we can produce smaller products with increased functionality. LOCTITE GC 10 accommodates the challenges of assembling 0201s alongside the larger modem parts, all while enabling more business flexibility as a temperature-stable solder paste.”
In addition to the new Henkel solder paste, Morey also uses several of the company’s LOCTITE adhesives, TECHNOMELT® materials, potting compounds and bar solder, among other materials. The comprehensive portfolio combined with Henkel’s expertise enables Morey to simplify its supply chain, optimize performance through material compatibility and extend cost savings to its customers in various high-reliability markets.
“For Henkel, the partnership extends far beyond a conventional customer-supplier relationship,” explains Brian Betti, Sales Director Americas for the electronics business at Henkel, who has supported Morey for more than 15 years. “Morey collaborates with our development teams to validate product performance, participates with our sales and tech service personnel in weekly technology sessions, and involves us in NPI development initiatives on a regular basis.”
Adding to Betti’s comments on the business relationship, Murphy says in summary, “The close connection with Henkel advances our deep knowledge of the industry and gives us insight into material requirements while accelerating our time-to-market. This is a true partnership in every sense.”
