The IMS Difference
At IMS, we believe that together, we can build great things. More than a PCBA or EMS provider, we are a partner committed to working smarter and faster—in a way that puts our customers first. We focus on high-mix, low-volume production and are experts in rapidly sourcing, assembling, and testing short runs quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
Our Employees & Equipment
Based in New England, Intelligent Manufacturing Solutions (IMS) was founded in 2005 to address a service gap in the market for high-quality, rapid prototype, and small lot printed circuit board assembly. The IMS founders recognized the struggles that businesses face in receiving high levels of customer service for their prototype and low-volume PCBA needs and designed IMS specifically to service this niche.
The IMS management team has extensive experience in the EMS industry and has worked together for over 25 years. We understand and appreciate the design and manufacturing challenges your business faces—and are ready and willing to help.
The IMS culture is one of hard work, dedication, and persistence—we meet our deadlines, adhere to schedules, and recognize the importance of doing what we say. We hold your best interests at heart and are proud of the role we play in your success.
