Under that model, Firstronic would continue to develop standard electronics manufacturing services (EMS) solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) wishing to outsource production. Those with remanufacturing needs would be offered that service through FSEG. FSEG would continue to offer remanufacturing services, plus original build of “seed” stocks needed for warranty support when core stock was unavailable, while providing its customers access to standard EMS production capabilities through Firstronic.
“Our alliance with FSEG helps ensure that we are able to offer a comprehensive post-manufacturing solution to customers whose products have a long service life. Since remanufacturing gives new life to existing components, it provides customers with both a “green solution” and lowered spares inventory costs. FSEG’s combination of engineering, manufacturing and logistics expertise make it the ideal partner to include in our post-manufacturing support supply chain,” said John Sammut, Firstronic CEO.
“Joining forces with Firstronic is great step forward in the continuing development of Flight Systems’ remanufacturing capabilities,” said Mark DiGiampietro, FSEG president. “With our focus on service and aftermarket support, Firstronic is in an ideal position to help us further strengthen our business, while providing a full array of options to their customer base.
