MAC Announces Inclusion in Newly Formed Platform Brand Compass Electronics Solutions
Company joins new entity that combines capabilities of four established electronics companies into a single full-service solutions provider
DAYTON, OHIO – February 4, 2019 – Manufactured Assemblies Corporation (MAC), a worldwide manufacturer of electronic and mechanical assemblies, announced today their inclusion in the launch of a new platform brand: Compass Electronics Solutions (CES), the premier partner for connected device design, development, manufacturing and support for the world’s most innovative products.
The CES platform brings MAC together with three other companies that possess the capabilities necessary to support OEMs at any stage in the product lifecycle of their electronic devices. Each of the four business units operating under the CES brand have distinguished themselves in electronic, connected and IoT-enabled product development, manufacturing and delivery. Together, these business units enable CES to service both existing and future customers with an expanded set of capabilities that span the full product lifecycle.
Brought together through acquisition by the St. Louis-based private equity firm Compass Group Equity Group, the companies in CES include: Logic PD (headquartered in Minneapolis) with capabilities in design, engineering, electronics manufacturing, and system on module production; Protech Global Solutions (locations in El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico), with electronics manufacturing, testing, and supply chain/logistics services; and Qualitronics Inc. (based in Richmond, Ind) whose specialty is large-format cable harnesses.
“By combining these four established, well-respected electronics companies together under the CES brand, we can provide OEMs with an elite level of quality and service for every need they have throughout the full lifecycle of their electronic devices,” said Jeff Roberts, President and COO of Compass Electronics Solutions. “Through the CES brand, we offer our customers with a solution that stretches from design to delivery and beyond. We’re excited about the benefits it will bring to our customers – from reduced risk to decreased costs, and faster time-to-market in their development process.”
CES provides customers a full suite of capabilities, with specializations in connected device design and development, embedded products/system on modules, electronics manufacturing services, wire harness and cable assembly, custom kiosk and box builds, and logistics and support services.
Leadership of the new brand reflects the companys commitment to supporting the full lifecycle of customer engagement. Joining Roberts on the CES executive team are CFO Mark Malone, CCO Jeff Mayer and CTO Ankur Tandon.
