Interplex designs and manufactures miniature precision-engineered solutions for custom interconnect, electronic packaging and mechanical/electromechanical applications.

“We are delighted with Amtek’s acquisition of Interplex,” says Steven Feinstein, president of Interplex. “Interplex has a long and successful track record in servicing blue chip customers with market-leading miniature precision-engineered solutions and application design services, and with Amtek, we believe we will build upon this track record. We are confident this transaction is the right decision for our customers, our staff and our business, and we look forward to working with Amtek on the next phase of Interplex’s growth.”

“We are excited about this new chapter in the growth of Amtek,” says Daniel Yeong Bou Wai, chairman and CEO of Amtek. “We believe that this transaction will not only add to Amtek’s stable of capabilities and geographic coverage, but also bring on board a stellar management team with a proven track record. Interplex’s miniature precision-engineered solutions, blue chip customer base and global footprint are highly complementary to Amtek. I look forward to our management teams working together and believe that the combined skills and knowhow of both teams will only serve to propel Amtek forward to bigger and better things.”
