Technica Celebrates 35th Year

SAN JOSE, CA — On July 28th, Technica marked its 35th year of providing materials and equip- ment to printed circuit board manufacturers in North Ameri- ca. Founded in 1986 by Robert Morgensen, with Frank Medina joining as a partner a few years later, Technica soon became a major supplier to the industry. Medina, president of Tech-

nica, comments, “It is amazing to think that it has been 35 years already, time has flown by quick- ly. We have been blessed to have many hardworking and extreme- ly talented men and women as part of our team over the years. We can also reflect on the many long relationships we have creat- ed, including a 30-year relation- ship with many of the people at Wise s.r.l., and more recently, with Elite Materials Co., Ltd.,” As the PCB fabrication mar-

ket started to change after the new millennium, Technica began

a quest to diversify into other markets. It wasn’t until around 2008, with the help and support of some special associates and board members, that the company made a strong commitment to expand into some specific markets. Ac- cording to Medina, around 2013 the SMT market fell into place for Technica, adding ASM As- sembly Systems as a partner. “Having a supply partner

willing to support our vision to establish a demo and training center in San Jose was the begin- ning of a mutually beneficial re- lationship,” he says. News of the center attracted other companies to join the team. Technica now represents some of the best and most recognizable products in the SMT market. Contact: Technica U.S.A.,
