LAKE FOREST, CA -- Materials supplier CAC Inc. has acquired of the assets used to manufacture Oak Mitsui's aluminum-bonded-copper and sheeted copper foil and will relocate manufacturing to its plant in southern California.
“The combination of CAC and ABC not only combines two respected brands in the industry but it strengthens the production capability of ‘protected’ outer-layer copper foil’,” CAC president and CEO Patrick Redfern said. “We are proud to expand the partnership with the world’s leading developer and producer of ED copper foil by consolidating the ABC and CAC operations into our southern California manufacturing facility.
“The acquisition is an indication of our resolve to help fabricators make better circuits,” he added.
ABC and CAC's copper-aluminum-copper both feature Oak Mitsui’s electrodeposited copper foil. Oak Mitsui said the deal is a win-win.
“CAC is a fantastic home for our ABC product line," said John Blaber, Oak Mitsui senior vice president of sales & marketing. "It provides continuity for this product and allows both Oak Mitsui and CAC to focus of what we do best. It also streamlines the supply chain as both companies distribute their products through Insulectro.”
