EGLS outsources prober work to Flextronics

September 21, 2007 – Electroglas Inc. has agreed to have Flextronics International Inc. manufacture its full line of probers at a site in Malu, China, in an effort to reduce cost and lead-times for global customers.

The integration of the company’s product manufacturing will be “phased in over the next few quarters,” according to Tom Rohrs, chairman/CEO of Electroglas, in a statement.

For Flextronics, the Electroglas business relationship “allows us to continue to build a strong product portfolio of technically complex, low volume, high mix products in China,” stated E.C. Sykes, president of the firm’s industrial segment.
