KCE Group: A Thailand-Based PCB Manufacturer with a Growing Global Footprint
Recently, while at electronica in Munich, Germany I met KCE America President Rick Rhodes, and Joe Yeo of KCE Group, whose responsibilities include NAFTA sales and marketing. Both are based in the U.S. and are responsible for sales within the states for this long-standing player in the PCB manufacturing industry that has its base in Thailand. They discuss the unique challenges and opportunities that come with the rigorous automotive market, and explain why they continue to enjoy explosive growth.
Judy Warner: Rick and Joe, it’s a delight to meet you both. Rick, can you tell us a little about KCE Group and what that encompasses?
Rhodes: KCE Electronics was established more than 30 years ago, in Bangkok, Thailand, as a printed circuit board manufacturer. KCE grew into the KCE Group, adding KCE America, KCE Singapore, KCE Europe, KCE Japan, and KCE Thailand, as well as Christian Enzmann, which is the distribution entity for KCE in Germany.
