BOHEMIA, N.Y.—Precision Assembly Technologies, Inc. (PAT), an electronics manufacturing firm on Long Island, has proven adept at forming long-term partnerships with customers in industries with complex product requirements. The company’s success in this area derives, in large part, from its laser-like customer focus, engineering know-how, and unwavering commitment to consistently high quality in mission-critical electronics.
“PAT takes pride in the experiences we have with our customers,” said Precision Assembly Technologies Founder and CEO Russell Gulotta, in a statement on the company’s website. “From sales, program management, engineering, and production, we work closely with our customers to provide seamless communication, resulting in a pure customer focus strategy. Our team takes the time to understand each customer’s culture and works diligently to achieve all goals.”
As an electronics contract manufacturer, PAT specializes in full turnkey surface mount technology (SMT) assembly services, as well as electromechanical and wire harness assemblies, according to its AS9100D and ISO 9001:2015 registration certificate.
Precision Assembly Technologies also provides mechanical and electrical engineering design, SMT and legacy through-hole assembly for circuit card assembly (CCA) production, complete product testing, and environmental screening. The company employs more than 50 team members at its modern 25,000-square-foot facility in Bohemia, Gulotta said in an emailed response to D2P.
“Our SMT department is overseen by an electrical engineer with over 20 years of SMT experience,” PAT said on its website. “This allows PAT to evaluate the specific assembly required for each individual board, understand deeply its requirements and functions, and make sure all are met.”
Gulotta said Precision Assembly Technologies provides customers “a premier experience for complex technologies,” combined with cost-saving efficiencies. Whether it’s delivering electromechanical design, rapid prototypes, supply chain management, or volume production, PAT’s team provides “efficiency that matters to your bottom line,” he said.
“We are an aerospace certified, AS9100 company. [Our] employees are all certified to IPC-610 class 3 and J-STD-001; we also just became J-STD space certified,” Gulotta said, adding that PAT also has IPC J-STD trainers on staff.
According to PAT’s website, the company offers a customized approach to manufacturing for the space industry. Through its partnerships with large aerospace companies, PAT has helped them manufacture and assemble products such as satellite test equipment and mission-critical avionics.
“Each electronics solution is tailored to the specific needs of our customer, utilizing our extensive market experience and quality management systems that consistently deliver on requirements for performance, cost, and versatility,” PAT said on its website.
For aerospace and defense customers, PAT’s resume includes electronics for engine igniters used to start commercial and military jet engines. The company’s work also includes electronics for smart bomb racks used by the military, and general electronic equipment for space travel. Precision Assembly Technologies has also served customers that make power supplies, ultrasonic thickness measuring gauge equipment, and robotic process automation equipment, Gulotta said.
In addition to serving the aerospace and defense industry, Precision Assembly Technologies provides expert electronics manufacturing services (EMS) for customers in the medical, robotics, and industrial electronics markets. For the medical industry, PAT has worked with customers that make blood diagnostics equipment and endoscope channel drying instrumentation, Gulotta said.
One of the major benefits of a long-term contract manufacturing relationship with PAT—in addition to its commitment to high quality—is the company’s motivation and ability to reduce unnecessary costs associated with customers’ projects. After learning a customer’s specific needs and product performance requirements, its team can employ various tools to meet the customer’s cost reduction targets.
“This may be achieved by applying lean manufacturing processes to lower costs over time, by leveraging our extensive procurement network, or by our reengineering or designing services within your acceptable parameters,” the company said on its website.
