BEAVERTON, Ore., 17 june 2009. Merix Corp., a provider of high-reliability printed circuit boards (PCBs), won a multimillion dollar order from global avionics and communications pioneer Rockwell Collins. The order strengthens the company's focus on the defense and aerospace sector, where the company has broadened its product offering and grown its market share in the past 14 months.
Since charting a new growth strategy in 2007, Merix has made it a priority to grow its presence in the defense and aerospace sector and is now certified to MIL-PRF-31032 in all its North American facilities.
Rockwell Collins will use Merix's advanced PCBs in the design and development of sophisticated, mission-critical solutions for both military and defense use. These include flight deck avionics, cabin electronics, information management, military communications, and simulation and training applications.
Says Michael D. Burger, president and CEO of Merix Corp., "Not surprisingly, the U.S. military and aerospace sector places a premium on quality, reliability, and overall cost-effectiveness."
