Leader Tech Expands EMI Shielding Center
Enhanced manufacturing facility for shielding components.
Tampa, FL — Leader Tech has completed its Phase II, Global EMI Shielding Technology Center expansion. Since the grand opening announcement in May of last year, the company has benefited from a notable increase in demand for the company's board-level EMI Shielding products. The expansion includes adding three domestic Sales Representatives, a Regional Sales Engineer and a dedicated 45-press manufacturing line.

The enhanced manufacturing capacity is focused on satisfying new demand for the company's Slot-Lok line of board level shields as well as an increase in custom application volumes. The new custom-designed press department gives customers the flexibility to create near-custom shielding solutions using standardized manufacturing methods. This unusual manufacturing approach significantly reduces product cost and lead times while increasing the customer's design flexibility.

Similar capabilities are being developed for the company's growing standard and custom precision Beryllium Copper shielding products. The growth within Leader Tech's expanding product line will be supported by multiple additions to the technical sales team. The recent appointment of three Technical Sales Representatives include: Harthun Associates for the Rocky Mountain region; Win-Cor Electronic Sales for the NJ/NY Metro region; and Admor Sales for Southern California. In addition, Eric Arroyo was hired as a Regional Sales Engineer for the Midwest region based in the Chicago metro area.
