Posted by Scott Baxter on Mar 6, 2015 3:18:00 PM

The advantage of being a World Class Contract Manufacturer is the depth of experience across highly complex industries.  Currently, the semiconductor equipment manufacturing industry is one of the most high tech and complex of all.  Some of the machines designed and manufactured by such companies are thought to be the most complex pieces of machinery in the history of mankind.  As we all know, California is a hub for this type of equipment.  And When things are cranking in the semiconductor industry at the same time as other industries like Defense and Aerospace, the local CNC machine shops can get overloaded quickly. Not to mention CNC machining of large parts, which are even harder to find in the California region.  Similarly, the assembly shops can feel the same struggle, although there are less of these folks.  With all these factors in play, companies like PEKO have found a good market in supporting the Semiconductor OEMs in California.
