Leading EMS provider, NBS ( has announced a partnership agreement with wireless network provider, Altobridge.

Under this new partnership, NBS will become an approved manufacturing, RMA and logistics provider to Altobridge.

Altobridge is a global cellular communications company, headquartered in Ireland, with additional offices in China, Malaysia and the US. Altobridge develops wireless network solutions which reduce mobile network operators’ costs, for the delivery of mobile voice, mobile broadband and ‘Big Data’ services.

Santa Clara based NBS delivers a unique business model that successfully combines exceptional NPI with volume manufacturing.

“Our expertise is in software and hardware design and development” said Altobridge CEO, Mike Fitzgerald. “Therefore, it is essential for us to have partners who can handle our manufacturing processes in line with our growth targets. In NBS, we found a winning combination of flexibility, adaptability and cost-effectiveness” he added.

As OEM’s expand and diversify their portfolios, additional demands are placed upon their outsourcing partners. The more an EMS can offer, the greater are its opportunities to capture, grow and maintain lasting relationships. At NBS this began with computer aided design (CAD) services. Once the decision was made to provide manufacturing services, design for manufacturability (DFx) evaluative engineering services soon followed. Very few, if any, EMS companies provide NBS’ level of detailed scrutiny and feedback of its customer’s designs in such a rapid paced environment.

NBS President and CEO, Michael Maslana exclaimed, “We very excited to be starting this new relationship with Altobridge and are pleased to be contributing to their ongoing success, at bringing mobile voice and data connectivity to rural communities around the world.”
