Overview

EPE Corporation’s ability to produce high-reliability electronics products relies not only on our own internal expertise and capabilities, but also on a complex supply chain that provides the critical materials, components, and services that go into the manufacture and delivery of our products.

From product design and NPI to volume manufacturing and logistics, EPE leverages a diverse network of strategic supply and distribution partners that add significant value to our range of electronics products and assemblies.

These are companies large and small whose innovative capabilities, commitment to quality and performance standards, and materials and services enable us to meet unique customer requirements and manufacture and deliver custom solutions flexibly, cost effectively, and predictably.
