Real-world expertise produces real-world solutions.
For thirty years, Sanmina has been creating the world’s networks communications infrastructure — from components to complete systems. We take pride in helping customers industrialize their products with inventive solutions. We continue to raise the bar, driving the industry with optical components, printed circuit boards (PCBs), cables and backplanes, plus the latest technologies required to support 100 Gb/s designs.
Collaborating to gain the competitive edge.
Because of our optical, RF and key technologies, customers partner with Sanmina at an early stage to create the highest performance and most efficient design. The latest high-speed technologies are integrated into these new designs with materials and processes optimized for high performance and lowest cost. Collaborating at an early stage with Sanmina minimizes research and development (R&D) costs. The result: a high-performance product entering the market at the right time and at the right cost, giving customers a competitive advantage.
A complete portfolio of technology components shrinks lead times.
Sanmina designs and manufactures every element critical to the performance of complex communications network equipment, including optical, radio frequency (RF) and microelectronics components. Such an extensive range of products and services are unmatched in the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry. From high-technology PCBs, printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs), backplanes, enclosures, cables and memory systems, Sanmina’s customers select the right components from one source, confident of quality and efficiency in the supply chain.
Globally positioned to improve total landed cost.
Sanmina’s gateway prototyping and manufacturing facilities are strategically located throughout Asia, Europe and the Americas, allowing for convenient collaboration between Sanmina and the customer’s R&D team. These gateway facilities manage and transition products to best-cost regions when needed. These sites accommodate high-mix, low-volume business, always with an emphasis on supply chain efficiency. By leveraging Sanmina’s global supply chain and network of facilities, customers improve the total landed cost of their communications networks systems.
Flexible manufacturing supports customer growth.
The communications networks industry demands flexible manufacturing, supply chain and logistics options. Sanmina has extensive logistics and repair capabilities that support flexible, lean manufacturing. Direct order fulfillment provides customers revenue instead of inventory. And dedicated service and repair operations strategically located on four continents ensure that delivery times, costs and inventory are minimized.
Competitive solutions for companies of all sizes.
Companies of all sizes benefit from Sanmina’s decades of experience in the communications networks industry. We make relationships a priority, investing the time to understand a customer’s individual goals in detail. For the small to mid-size company, Sanmina offers one-on-one, local support combined with the economic advantages and global reach of a Tier-1 EMS company.
For larger companies, Sanmina offers a complete global network of design, technology and component manufacturing facilities, plus system integration and forward and reverse logistics. Our customers benefit from a vertical integration and logistics services offering surpassed by none, enabling us to deliver quality products all over the world.
We are often called upon to apply our unique optical technologies and IP to products outside the communications networks space as well. As an example, one customer presented an idea for using optical technology to detect pathogens in food. Sanmina brought the concept to reality by designing the product, supplying and assembling key optical components, testing, manufacturing and, ultimately, delivering a more competitive product to market.
In sum, that’s what Sanmina does: helps communications networks and other customers create new and more competitive products. We’re knowledgeable, accessible and responsive. And we take pride in every customer success.
