Santa Ana, CA, November 06, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Reducing lead times for its Micro-D harsh-environment connectors, ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has expanded its Quick Turn program with distributor PEI-Genesis, the world’s fastest assembler of precision connectors and power supplies. An ITT distribution partner for more than 50 years, PEI-Genesis now has the capability to ship Micro-D connectors worldwide within 48 hours.
ITT’s microminiature connectors feature advanced designs that provide higher density contact configurations than available in traditional rectangular connectors. First invented by Cannon in the 1960s, these highly reliable connectors meet the rapidly increasing demands for high performance, rugged, moisture-sealed microminiature connectors for harsh environments that are ideal for mission critical military, aviation, space and industrial applications.
“PEI Genesis has established itself as a premier connector distributor within the military, aerospace and industrial marketplaces. Their impressive capabilities enable them to assemble a broad array of ITT Cannon MDM wired connectors within three business days, providing quick turnaround and flexible quantity ordering for our customers,” said James Herman, VP of sales at ITT Interconnect Solutions. This new assembly capability for ITT’s Micro-D is now offered by PEI in the US and Europe to service worldwide requirements with short turn times for small or large orders.
“Since 1952, we have assembled and distributed ITT connectors, and we are excited to announce the expansion of the Quick Turn program to include the Micro-D connectors,” said Russ Dorwart, President & COO of PEI-Genesis. “Our state-of-the-art facilities, with complete process flow and automation equipment, combined with our in-house design engineering and field application teams, enable PEI to quickly supply almost any connector variant that might be required, thereby reducing time-to-market.”
PEI’s 150,000 square foot facility in South Bend, Indiana, produces more than 32,000 parts per day. Approximately 65 percent of the orders PEI fulfills are in quantities of 10 pieces or less.
