Contract Manufacturing Services
AMS is an authorized sales representative for one of, if not, the largest contract manufacturers within the Southwest Region. AMS has relationships with many Contract Manufacturers and can find the best fit for your requirements. We have over 50 years experience in managing production of board assembly.
We take your board assembly and make it our board assembly. Your required due date becomes our required due date. We make sure that your board is built to the current board assembly level and that all manufacturing requirements are executed.
Our Contract Manufacturers provide Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) and partner with OEMs to help assemble, integrate and test subsystems, and electronic parts. We can also provide complementary value-based services such as engineering services, subsystems assembly, distribution and repair — first in the US, and optionally transition to China when the volume reaches an optimum threshold.
The ISO 9001:2000 certified, financially stable company is well-recognized for high-mix, low-to-medium volume printed circuit board assembly, and system integration. The company has built its reputation on three principles: total customer satisfaction, rapid response and streamlined efficiency.
Complete vertical integration — from specialized engineering services (such as printed circuit board layout, prototyping and test development) to supply chain management, manufacturing, fulfillment and service depot — allows AMS’ CEM to capture efficiencies, maintain cost advantages, and deliver turnkey solutions to its customer base.
Because of the depth of services that our CEM offers, customers are oftentimes able to reduce the number of steps from design to production. This thereby minimizes cost, time to market, and maximizes value
Today’s intense design requirements are more demanding due to global competition. Business issues must be resolved quickly so that your company can beat the competition to market. In a world where failure is not an option and design teams face complex interactions that must be dealt with swiftly . . . AMS knows that our customers require more than a quick technological fix. We help meet your goals by working hands on! We listen, watch, and understand what it means to develop a specific design, hit the budget required, and meet the scheduled deadline.
AMS offers quick turn prototype assembly and can help with lead-time reduction programs such as: bonded inventory, forecast agreement, pre-build, JIT system, and capacity planning. We are trained to work with engineering departments to help specify custom engineered interconnect systems to lower your costs, reduce lead times, and improve quality.
We can help with Engineering support on cables and boards as required. If we cannot help you then we have local partners that can. From the idea, to full design AMS is here to help.
UL certified, ISO 9000 compliant, & IPC-620 compliant.
We strive to reach the highest level of quality from design to production. We are continuously improving by using stringent quality control standards from kit preparation to assembly. We follow the same processes day in and day out. Every job is QC inspected to ensure that our quality meets your requirements. Our skilled manufacturing team has worked together for over 10 years; this tenure allows our work to exceed your expectations.
We notify our customers of any changes that can be implemented in order to make the assembly more efficient. Our company process has been used for years, which enables us to build your product with the highest level of quality every day, and every time we touch your assembly.
Review of your quality requirements is a must at the start of each new assembly, and specific work order Instructions are implemented with each job. A first article, and drawing are required for every assembly and a digital picture is kept on file.
We work hard to implement process improvement methods and our quality control team undergoes continuing education on inspection standards to ensure the qualifications of our entire staff. From engineers to technicians; we implement standardized training in ESD, safety and on-the-job performance according to IPC-A-610 and IPC-A-620A standards.
We understand the importance of a lead-free product and ROHS and we are working directly with our suppliers to ensure that your assemblies meet ROHS standards.
Every cable assembly is 100% tested and inspected for quality. We utilize testing equipment from Cirris Systems when possible. We also use fluke meters and 100% pull tests. The extra time spent within our experienced Quality Department allows AMS to achieve the highest possible quality standards possible.
