AMIRIX, Creation Technologies to Offer Design, Manufacturing Solutions

6/16/2003 - AMIRIX Systems, a provider of custom embedded systems design services for electronic product realization, and Creation Technologies, a top 100 Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) provider and an expert in manufacturing complex electronics, announced they have formed a strategic partnership to offer complete, start to finish design and manufacturing solutions.

AMIRIX's engineering teams will provide hardware and software services, from programmable logic and high performance digital board design and integration to embedded software design and technical support. Creation will provide services from design, new product introduction, printed circuit board assembly and test to box build, order and distribution logistics, and after market support.

"This alliance allows both companies to jointly extend our respective value propositions - AMIRIX's to include volume manufacturing while Creation's now includes full contract design services," said AMIRIX CEO Sandra Greer. "More than ever, customers are demanding complete turnkey, idea to market solutions and now we can offer them even greater value for their money."

The partnership delivers all the capabilities of a large vertically integrated contract manufacturer but with much greater flexibility, responsiveness and value. From concept to delivery, complete projects are managed by one, cohesive team that use concurrent project management and engineering principles to optimize time to market and contain costs. Joint management of technical and business issues also minimizes risk.

"We see a number of opportunities for both current and potential customers to benefit from this alliance. By working together and focusing on our own areas of expertise, AMIRIX and Creation will bring a unique solution to a customer's product requirements," stated Dave Pettigrew, EVP of Business Development from Creation.
