MC Assembly Selected by Clean Power Electronics Firm Pika Energy to Support Product Manufacturing
Electronics manufacturing services provider MC Assembly is working with Maine-based Pika Energy to manufacture components of the company’s solar inverter product lines.
Pika Energy selected MC Assembly in 2016, seeking a New England-based manufacturing partner to meet the company’s increasing production needs.
“We looked to MC Assembly when we sought to scale up our manufacturing to meet increasing product demand,” said Chip Means, Pika Energy’s Director of Sales Development. Means said MC Assembly’s location just two hours from Pika Energy’s headquarters was a strong quality in the relationship from early on. “We mutually identified the advantage of working closely, geographically, as partners,” he said.
“We have built a strong relationship,” said Gary Tarallo, Director of New Business Development for MC Assembly’s Boston Facility. “It’s truly a partnership, as we both look at how we support each other as a win-win.”
According to Tarallo, Pika Energy is on the leading edge of an industry that MC Assembly sees as the future for consumers. “Clean energy is a fast-growing market and Pika Energy has an innovative product line. We’re happy to be working with them,” Tarallo said.
“Working with MC Assembly has been a very open, very active process,” Means said. “They’ve worked with our team to really understand our upcoming pipeline needs. It’s been an exciting last six months and MC Assembly has been a big part of that,” Means said.
