Zentech Manufacturing, Inc
, a military C4ISR-focused small business and the Mid-Atlantic region's premier military electronics contract manufacturer, has been awarded a five-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to support advanced electronics contract manufacturing for the U.S. Army's Picatinny Arsenal Armament Research Development Engineering Center (ARDEC).
The ARDEC award closely follows a similar five-year BPA award issued to Zentech Manufacturing, Inc. in May by the Naval Surface Warfare Center for sophisticated naval electronics manufacturing.
As the only electronics contract manufacturer in the region holding certifications to the stringent aerospace AS 9100 specification, IPC Class 3 certification for mission critical electronics manufacturing and the Defense Logistics Agency Joint Certification Program Certification DD2345 for militarily sensitive technical data package manufacturing, Zentech continues to be the go-to provider of critical mission electronics manufacturing services to the military.
Matt Turpin (President - Zentech) comments, "Zentech has a long legacy of supporting the U.S. military's armed forces - on land, in the air and at sea - and the military's confidence in Zentech is reflected in these long-term agreements. We are proud of both our contribution and our performance. We stand ready to continue our support of the U.S. military, with both capital investment in advanced processing systems to support advanced technology manufacturing and focused commitment to deliver superior quality radar and munitions related systems on accelerated build schedules".
The ARDEC agreement is broad in scope, and also includes electro-mechanical assembly requirements of advanced electronics in support of Ft. Dix in New Jersey, Benet Laboratory in New York, Adelphi Laboratory in Maryland and Rock Island in Illinois.
Zentech in the News
Zentech was recently featured in Inc Magazine for its success in reshoring electronic assembly builds that were previously outsourced by US businesses to China. Matt Turpin, President of Zentech, states "the automation within the assembly area has grown by leaps and bounds. It's light years ahead. So now when you compare the US to Asia, if your cost to buy the automation equipment is the same, if your cost to finance the capital is the same, and your labor is down to 5 to 10 minutes, well then, you may as well manufacture here"
