Bestronics to Host the Silicon Valley Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) Technical Conference and Expo

Bestronics will host the Silicon Valley SMTA technical conference and expo in its manufacturing facility in San Jose, on Nov. 29, 2017. SMTA is a non-profit association of international companies and individuals dedicated to the advancement of the electronics industry through member education and interaction. The conference is free to pre-registered attendees and features a keynote by Microsoft executive Brian Toleno, technical presentations, and over 50 exhibitions by local electronics manufacturers and suppliers.

“As manufacturing activity declined in the valley, so did interest in hosting technical forums here,” said Robert Boguski, SMTA Silicon Valley Chapter President and President of Datest. “With the resurgence in onshore high technology manufacturing, we’re very proud that the annual SMTA conference will be located here in Silicon Valley for the first time in nearly a decade. Bestronics has generously supported our organization by hosting regular SMTA chapter meetings in their San Jose headquarters, and this year made the tech expo possible by opening their expansive manufacturing facility to not only host the conference, but expose attendees to the latest technology and equipment available for electronic manufacturing.”

“Silicon Valley offers such a rich variety of talent and resources,” said Nat Mani, Bestronics President and CEO. "We are very pleased to support this dynamic conference and encourage the synergy that such events foster. In addition to the sessions and new product and service demonstrations, conference attendees will have the opportunity to view state-of-the-art manufacturing technology in action. Specifically, attendees can view sophisticated SMT placement, X-Ray and selective soldering, clean room packaging, box-build, system integration, high temperature testing and full product lifecycle management capabilities all within our campus.”
