Electronic Controls Manufacturer Expands for Anticipated Growth

March 13, 2009
Sunburst Electronic sees growth in military, medical and other high-reliability markets.

Sunburst Electronics, a contract manufacturer of electronic controls based in Erie, Pa., has completed a significant stage in its continued expansion by increasing both capacity and printed circuit board production capabilities via a major capital equipment purchase.

The company specializes in developing electronic assemblies (printed circuit boards, chassis assembly, cables and harnesses) for medical devices/equipment, aerospace/aeronautics, military applications, process controls and instrumentation, industrial equipment, measurement systems and transportation.

Anticipating growing its business in the military, medical and other high-reliability markets this year, the company added a full-service MYDATA production line for surface mount applications.

Complete with numerous state-of-the-art technologies including a Linescan Vision System and advanced-level software, Sunburst's new production line is capable of mounting exceptionally small, complex components with very high degrees of accuracy. The new equipment also permits faster production speeds, as well as extended board handling and component ranges.

"Sunburst's latest capital equipment investment reflects our commitment to meeting the changing technology needs of our customers in high-reliability electronics industries," said Kevin McDonough, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Sunburst. "Additionally, this investment is part of Sunburst's strategy to proactively plan for growth slated for 2009 and beyond."
