EI Microcircuits, Inc. Celebrates 30th Anniversary

EI Microcircuits

Minnesota-based EMS contract manufacturer reaches 30-year milestone in EMS industry

EI Microcircuits, an Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider, started just 30 years ago on the porch of Founder Bob Else's house in 1984. His vision was simple: Provide quality PCB electronic assemblies and unparalleled customer service.

Today, EI Microcircuits has grown from two employees to over 270 in three MN locations, propelling them to become a top leader in the electronics industry with a sterling reputation for its quality services and employees, something that has retained loyal customers, some for over 20+ years. It remains a privately owned business and is now under the leadership of Bob's two sons, Rob and Eric Else.

EI Microcircuits has made many notable achievements including being an early pioneer in SMT outsourcing, the first EMS provider to obtain ISO 13485 certification in the U.S., and the first to own an SMT machine in North America.

"We have been blessed to be surrounded by good employees and customers and are grateful for the relationships that have developed over the past 30 years. We have positioned ourselves to quickly respond to our ever-changing industry and look with great excitement and optimism to see what the future has in store for us," states Eric Else, Co-President.

Having worked with customers from a wide range of markets including medical and industrial, EI Microcircuits has always made sure that they are flexible and able to meet customers' needs with services ranging from design to distribution.

With a wealth of industry experience and insight, EI Microcircuits continues to remain in the top tier of EMS providers. What has been their secret?

Rob Else, Co-President states, "With our growth over the years, we have taken advantage of what a larger company can offer, while still trying hard to preserve our small company culture, which is very customer-focused."

"This is a very exciting time for us and we enjoy celebrating our success but we also keep in mind that yesterday's home runs don't win tomorrow's games. We need to continue to strive to get better. The investments we have made in plant, equipment and personnel will ensure our future success years to come."
