What separates Saturn from other bare board Manufacturers?


Bare printed circuit board manufacturer Saturn Electronics Corporation’s commitment to quality extends to technology, pricing, flexibility, and lean manufacturing. Saturn is always conscious of its role in PCB supply chain. From our suppliers like the Isola Group and Florida CirTech to OEMs like G.M. and Lockheed Martin, Saturn is informed of every facet—with quality being the dominating perspective. 

Collapse of 2001 

The collapse of 2001 propelled 50% of domestic bare manufacturers to either turn strictly to brokering, or to harvesting a once prosperous business—even all-out disappearing. Saturn Electronics Corporation opted for none of these solutions (brokering through offshore accounts makes up less than 20% of our business). Rather, Saturn utilized our strict adherence to automotive quality standards and began an impressive reinvestment program that we have maintained since 2002. Furthermore, we diversified our industries served--to now include Aerospace and Defense, Medical, Industrial Controls by expanding our advanced technologies for printed circuit boards

In addition, Saturn has reinvested $5 million back into our 74,000 sq-ft domestic facility located in Metro Detroit—strategically located less than two minutes from Metro Airport-- to better address delivery capabilities. 

Also, Saturn has been at the forefront of the transition to lead free manufacturing within the PCB Industry. Saturn’s lead free cost reduction webinar was well-received with the PCB Supply Chain as it crossed numerous disciplines throughout the PCB industry. Originally intended as an education symposium for our immediate client base, word soon spread and everyone from OEM’s to DFM’s to EMS providers we’re registering for the symposium that promised to educate participants on how to control the entire PCB manufacturing process. 

Saturn is capable of such bold claims because our commitment to quality has instilled a healthy sense of confidence not only in our customers…but our customer’s customers as well. 

Saturn offers niche PCB capabilities such as PTFE / RF-Microwave ApplicationsHeavy Copper PCBs, and Cavity Boards recognized throughout the Industry driving new customers to Saturn. In addition, our heavily sought-after Pb-free presentations have customers constantly inviting us to their location to educate them with our expertise. 

Saturn was awarded the Twenty-One PPM 2002 in recognition of Outstanding Engineering, Quality, and Delivery in bare printed circuit board manufacturing. Additionally, Saturn’s customer base consistently rates us at over 95% satisfaction for quality and delivery. Saturn also imposes its own strict quality monitoring internally by sending out frequent questionnaires to our very satisfied customer base.
