ENDICOTT, NY — Endicott Interconnect Technologies, Inc. (EI) has received Trusted Accreditation by the Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA) as a trusted source to the Department of Defense and all other U.S. government users. Specifically, EI has been awarded Category 1A trusted accreditation for integrated circuits for packaging/ assembly services at its Endicott, N.Y. facility. Trusted supplier status is awarded to those U.S. companies designing, generating, manufacturing and distributing components that are highly critical to our national security.
“Trusted supplier status is a key element of our strategy moving forward. It guarantees our customer’s access to a trusted supplier for mission critical applications, offers us the ability to fabricate classified designs along with providing access to leading edge technology and support through our industry partnership,” stated Jay McNamara, President and CEO at EI.
The change in industry demographics that has shifted microelectronic packaging expertise and manufacturing off-shore, has led to a reduction in worldwide research and development in advanced packaging and to a lack of new product and process capability within the U.S. As a result, the U.S. Department of Defense and the intelligence community is in need of American companies, positioned ahead of potential adversaries to provide leading technologies and manufacturing capabilities in support of the development of high technology products, or access to emerging technologies.
