GARLAND, TX -- National Circuit Assembly today announced a merger with Austin Circuit Design, adding design and sourcing to its electronics manufacturing services.

Financial and other terms were not disclosed.

NCA was founded by Mike Tieu in 2006. It operates a 30,000 sq. ft. factory northeast of Dallas.

ACD was founded as Circuit Design Consultants by Greg Ochoa in 1985. It incorporated and became Austin Circuit Design in 2002. The firm was sold to its current ownership in 2015.

"As a longtime partner of ACD, we understand the processes and ways that the design firm operates, and we know it fits in with NCA’s operations well," NCA said in a press release. "Now, NCA and its partners can enjoy a more streamlined process, from walking in the door to having a finished product running out the door. We aim to reach a broader audience with the addition of ACD and their capabilities to the NCA team."

NCA President Stephen Lehocky said, “We’re excited to be bringing such experienced and talented designers into the NCA family. With this combination, NCA is able to combine two high-quality companies into one, providing quicker processes and better service for our partners.”

ACD COO Minh Nguyen becomes NCA vice president of sales and sourcing. “NCA and ACD have worked hand-in-hand closely for several years already, and we’re looking forward to a smooth transition into working with our partners together,” Nguyen said. “If there’s one thing we want to stress to our partners, it’s that the high-quality results they’re familiar with from ACD and NCA aren’t going away. If anything, we’re just getting started.”
