“Be honest: treat your customers with respect, the small ones and the big ones. I have multi-million dollar customers and I have thousand dollar customers. We treat all of them in the same way in my company, because our goal is to have all customers feel important and trust that they will be treated accordingly….I think we will continue to grow as long as we stay focused on our task.” -Steve Robinson

APCT just finished its first year at DesignCon and was thrilled at the outcome!

As a manufacturer of high reliability, rigid printed circuit boards, we were pleased to be introduced to designers and engineers that represented so many industries across the printed circuit board spectrum. As people were finding the capabilities of APCT, we certainly enjoyed finding out about the new ideas and designs surrounding the electronics industry. 

Such a unique trade show, we were not only amazed at the diversity of ideas, but how strongly we were for each other in encouragement and support. It was an exciting time for us to stay current with philosophical thinking and how best to support that thinking with expertise and new equipment.

Thank you one and all who came to our booth. We hope to stay current and connected to you.

Join us next time first thing for an APCT red doughnuts, no through holes just blind vias.

It’s all about coming together as a design community, creating that unique face-to-face dialog. Please visit our booth 501 on the expo floor. We would like to encourage folks share what they’ve learned or conversations they found valuable.  In a series of boot camp, keynote, panel discussions and more on day one (Jan 31st), everyone enjoyed the food and friendship. We hope you find our booth a place that we talk with you not at you.

APCT is proud to participate in DesignCon, the premier conference for chip, board, and systems design engineers, returns to Silicon Valley for its 22nd year. DesignCon serves the high speed communications and semiconductor communities offering state-of-the-art design methodologies, applications, technologies, and unparalleled networking opportunities.

APCT wants to stop being the best-kept secret in the Printed Circuit Board industry; we will accomplish this by launching the first in our six series campaign “Who Are These Guys”, which is designed to introduce and educate the PCB industry on APCT’s innovative technologies, customer-first mantra and the incredible staff that truly differentiates APCT from the competition.


Will you be attending DesignCon 2017 Feb1–2 this year?

Hoping for a sweet start at the conference?  Head over first thing to booth 501. We’d love to meet you. Please come by and let us introduce our company to you and offer solutions to your technical and cycle time needs.
