In June of 2012, Linear Manufacturing acquired and opened an additional 10,000 square feet at 1096 Elkton Drive. This brings total manufacturing space up to 22,000 square feet.
In addition to the expansion of space, Linear acquired a KISS 101 Selective Solder System. The purchase of this piece of equipment eliminates the need for masking and hand soldering, resulting in significant time savings. The production of boards that required skilled employees to hand solder are now being run on the KISS 101 which allows the skilled employees to work on higher level work. Improved production time standards and increased consistent quality of boards soldered have resulted from utilizing the KISS 101.
Linear continues to do more box build assembly, complete turnkey and testing in the Colorado Springs facility. J. Palace, President and Founder of Linear, says, “I am pleased to see the economy turning around and remain optimistic regarding the growth of our company. We have added new space in anticipation of increasing our staff over the next several months.”
Linear Manufacturing has been based in Colorado Springs since 1995. Linear is a contract manufacturer for electronic circuit board assemblies and serves clients in many market segments for original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) including water treatment controllers, aerospace assemblies and medical devices.
