“As manufacturing activity declined in the valley, so did interest in hosting technical forums here,” said Robert Boguski, SMTA Silicon Valley Chapter President and President of Datest. “With the resurgence in onshore high technology manufacturing, we’re very proud that the annual SMTA conference will be located here in Silicon Valley for the first time in nearly a decade. Bestronics has generously supported our organization by hosting regular SMTA chapter meetings in their San Jose headquarters, and this year made the tech expo possible by opening their expansive manufacturing facility to not only host the conference, but expose attendees to the latest technology and equipment available for electronic manufacturing.”
“Silicon Valley offers such a rich variety of talent and resources,” said Nat Mani, Bestronics President and CEO. "We are very pleased to support this dynamic conference and encourage the synergy that such events foster.
