MIRTEC Opens Dedicated Manufacturing Facility in Europe Based in the UK


MIRTEC, “The Global Leader in Inspection Technology”, announces the opening of a dedicated manufacturing facility in Europe to further strengthen business and support in the territory. Based in Plymouth, UK, Mirtec will manufacture their complete range of Automatic Optical Inspection and Solder Paste Inspection systems at this new facility. When competitors were struggling in 2009 Mirtec continued to grow at unprecedented rate with multi-million dollar contracts being secured and major product releases confirming their position as the industries number one inspection company. The end of 2009 was very successful and the orders are coming in already for 2010 so the new facility will be a big advantage to the European sector.

All Mirtec systems are modular in design and based on the same innovative hardware and software, so from one system other models follow with ease. David Bennett, Managing Director of the European operation said: “We will invite customers to visit our new facility to see the quality of our build. The decision to open this facility has been met with great enthusiasm from our customers, suppliers, partners and the local community. Even though we currently hold stock in the UK, the widening range of models and options available to our customers means that having a manufacturing facility in Europe will guarantee fast deliveries for our customers. Logistically Plymouth has a strong history of SMT manufacturing and the local electrical mechanical labour supply and supplier base offers a major advantage.”

The company has recently returned from the Productronica exhibition in Munich where both customers and distribution partners were further encouraged by Mirtec’s obvious commitment and enthusiasm for the European market. This has been matched by the steady and continued growth of business in the region.

Dave Bennett summarized: “With the UK facility we can build systems to 80% and await the final 20% which is where the personal requirements of a customer’s configuration come into effect. We will hold stocks of each model to be built to semi-completion awaiting the final specification, which takes just a few days to setup and test. This will allow our customers to benefit from fast deliveries allowing them to also respond to opportunities swiftly with the best technology available. The end of 2009 was very successful for MIRTEC and the orders are coming in already for this year so the new facility will be a big advantage to the European sector.
