GMI has significantly increased its SMT placement capacity in Costa Rica with the addition of Juki’s FX3. GMI continues to see a need for increased placement capability due to its growing business. In addition, this increased speed offers their customers flexibility due to the ebbs and flows of their customers’ demand. As GMI’s core customers increase the number of projects and expected volumes, GMI prepares with additional capacity. Nick Harris, GMI’s Vice President of Global Operations, says “as our capabilities increase in Costa Rica, additional demand for Costa Rican production will follow. We plan on being ready”.
