PCB007 Interview with Travis Kelly: Isola Responding to the Market

Feature Interview by the I-Connect Editorial Team in July, 2021.

Interview with Isola’s Travis Kelly overviewing many the important topics that the industry is facing, like how the global supply chain is being strained by materials, and what companies are trying to do to best manage the items within their control.

 

Barry Matties: We scheduled this interview to get an update on how things are going with Isola and your new facility, but with what’s going on in the copper market and supply lines, we feel there’s more to talk about. Travis, can you start with an update on the new facility and how that is coming online?

 

Travis Kelly: Thank you, Barry. The new facility in Chandler, Arizona is up and running. We have our R&D lab, which started many months ago. It houses many of the corporate executives, as well as shared services, such as human resources, finance, and IT. Also, we went live with our quick turnaround facility several months ago. So that’s going well, but as you can imagine, there’s a launch curve to that facility as we have tested the run-at-rates on the equipment. Now we are producing revenue-generating orders. It’s no longer just qualifications for customers, it’s producing and fulfilling orders that are coming in from our customers primarily in the United States…
