– EMS provider Sanmina-SCI Corp.
has named former Symbol Technologies
executive Walt Hussey president of its technology components group.
Hussey, who was vice president of global manufacturing and distribution for Symbol, will be responsible for PCB fabrication, backplane and cable assembly, and enclosures.
He has 25 years of manufacturing experience with OEMs and EMS firms.
Sanmina-SCI was once the world’s largest supplier of PCBs, but since 2000, sales have dropped from more than $1 billion to about $420 million, according to PCD&M
consulting editor Hayao Nakahara’s annual NTI 100 ranking of PWB fabricators.
The company recently announced it would close its Phoenix PWB fabrication site and relocate much of the work to Owego, NY.CORRECTION:
We previously incorrectly reported Hussey would be replacing Steve Bruton. Bruton remains president and general manager of PCB fabrication at Sanmina-SCI. We regret the error.
