CHANDLER, AZ – Rogers has changed the name of its printed circuit materials division to Advanced Connectivity Solutions, the company announced today.
The company said the previous name of Advanced Circuit Materials no longer adequately represented its shift beyond existing material sets into new areas of RF/microwave and digital connectivity.
According to Jeff Grudzien, vice president of ACS, “Looking at our product innovation and technical support strengths in the microwave and digital communication industries, you can see how our business unit name could start to box us in from reaching our full potential. Although the name “Advanced Circuit Materials Division” served us very well to get us to this point, it was time to change the name to one that helps us pave the way for future growth and expansion. As a result, I’m happy to announce that effective today, we are changing our division name to ’Advanced Connectivity Solutions.’”
The acquisition of Arlon in January was a major step in the decision, the firm said. Through the acquisition, Rogers added thermally conductive substrates for heat dissipation in mobile internet devices and consumer appliances.
