SMTC provides advanced electronic manufacturing services to OEMs in the medical and life sciences sectors. These services support the safe deployment and execution of medical products, including the ability to deliver product recall, traceability, record retention, and risk management.

"This is an important milestone for SMTC as we extend our medical device manufacturing and engineering services in all SMTC factories worldwide," said Josh Chien, senior vice president of worldwide sales & marketing. "This certification is a further demonstration of SMTC's ongoing commitment to our focus on providing solutions to manufacture finished devices for medical OEMs."

SMTC will be showcasing its custom solution electronic manufacturing services at MD&M West in February.
