Cirtronics has hosted a well-attended annual EMS dinner for over ten years, inviting colleagues and competitors from across the country. By gathering a collective group of experts in the industry to share successes and challenges facing the market, Cirtronics continues to be an example of how a company can support the greater good ethically and productively.

“We’re deeply committed to our suppliers, partners, and the industry as a whole,” says David Patterson, Cirtronics President and CEO. “We began over 40 years ago building boards. Now we build systems from the board level up to final complex assemblies. However, boards remain the heart of all electronic and electromechanical systems. And the health of the EMS industry—and manufacturing lines across the country– rely on collaborations, especially in challenging times like these.”
