SMT Xtra launches sister company – SMT Xtra USA Inc. – in the US
SMT Xtra, a provider of productivity enhancing solutions for the global surface mount electronic assembly sector, announces the launch of its sister corporation, SMT Xtra USA Inc. The company will provide SMT nozzles, feeders, spare parts, printer parts, and machine sales in the U.S. and Mexico.
Based in Maryville, TN, SMT Xtra USA was founded in response to SMT Xtra’s continued growth plans to establish a direct presence in the United States that offers the same products and services that are available in Europe and Asia. The SMT Xtra USA facility is headed up by the company’s U.S.-based Sales Manager Paul Pittman.
A reflection of the expansion of the surface mount technology market within America can be seen with some of the major OEMs such as Ford, Fiat, Chrysler and General Motors with more than $5 billion combined in capital spending within just the auto market.
As a result of a predicted growth of 2.7 percent in 2017 and 2.8 percent in 2018 in U.S manufacturing, according to the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, there has never been a better time to expand SMT Xtra’s presence within the American market.
SMT replacement parts can be expensive, and the company realizes that efficiency and running costs in manufacturing are the difference between winning and losing customers. SMT Xtra acts as an extension of its customers’ engineering and purchasing teams to provide quality SMT nozzles, feeders, spare parts, printer parts, and machine sales to the global electronics industry.
