At a time when the world stock markets struggle to recuperate the accumulated losses of recent years and a growing number of technology companies are either posting losses or are facing painful restructuring, CECO has bucked the trend and made a significant investment in the future.  Despite a generally negative economic downturn, the California based connector manufacturer has announced the most significant investment ever made in the history of the company.

CECO has recently opened it’s own manufacturing site in Ireland.  The factory is located in a business park adjacent to Shannon International Airport in the West of Ireland. The building is of modular construction, making it very adaptable to ever changing market demands.  On site CECO has an impressive array of state-of-the-art equipment, which is necessary for the manufacture of high-density and 2x2mm connectors.  Capabilities include tool making, moulding and metal stamping.

“We want to increase our manufacturing capacity and reinforce our market presence world-wide” – explains company president Bill Rigby. “We have not spared any expense on the building, nor have we cut corners concerning the quality of the equipment for this facility.  We can also assure our customers that our management and control systems will be geared to fulfill all their requirements  - assures Mr. Rigby.

The factory space amounts to 2000m2 and general manager Gerry Clancy has indicated that application for ISO approval will be made in 2003.  “All customers, who have thus far visited our facility have expressed total confidence in our ability to meet their requirements” - concludes Mr. Clancy.
