Isola’s New US Quick Turn Around Manufacturing Facility is Up and Running

Isola has completed the final phase of construction of our new 118,000 square foot quick turn around manufacturing facility located in Chandler Arizona. The facility houses corporate headquarters, a fully equipped, state-of-the-art research laboratory and the most recent addition, our new lamination and fabrication facility which was designed to serve US fabricators need for quick turnaround and prototype business. The new manufacturing facility will produce copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepreg materials used to fabricate advanced multi-layer printed circuit boards (PCBs).

 

The new quick turn around manufacturing facility is the first investment in a brand new PCB materials manufacturing facility in the US in this 21st century. The lamination system was custom designed to allow critical path orders to be inserted into the process without interrupting the overall flow of production. This unique level of flexibility enables our production team with a cost effective means to produce a low volume, high mix of products very efficiently.

 

Our highly automated facility has completed all shakedown testing and has been certified for production. Customer qualification samples have begun to ship to Insulectro and Isola customers for several of Isola’s flagship products. Once our customers have completed their evaluations, we expect the systems will really start positively impacting our PCB and OEM customer’s time-to-market.

 

Sean Mirshafiei, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer said, “We anticipate our new quick turn around facility will provide an incredible amount of flexibility for our PCB customers that produce prototypes and small lot production. Our highly automated and flexible production systems will reduce lead times and ultimately our end user customers time to market.”

 

The new facility is part of the Lotus Project, which is located near Kyrene Road and Loop 202 at 6565 West Frye Road, Chandler AZ 85226. With the continued concerns over COVID-19, a Grand Opening celebration has been postponed until further notice. However, if you are interested in seeing the facility via virtual tour, we invite you to set up a web call with your local Insulectro or Isola sales representative. We would be happy to show off this new, gleaming facility.
