Sonic Manufacturing Technologies
Sonic Manufacturing Technologies’ ability to offer both full production and prototyping services has enabled it to maintain a stable place in the fast-moving and often volatile technology market.
The Fremont, Calif.-headquartered company provides mid-volume circuit board and other electronic assemblies for specialized markets including the medical equipment industry, that have not off-shored their production. The company also offers new product introduction (NPI) services to customers that want to test, prove proof of concept or demonstrate a new product before production.
“Most companies perform either one of these functions, and in this particular market, that can be a weakness. The very fact that we can perform both of these activities with high speed and using our high-tech expertise is a discriminator,” President Ken Raab says. “By virtue of doing both of those at the same time we are inherently fast and can bring our customers to production very quickly.”
