Beckhoff buys-out German automation circuit board manufacturer

Beckhoff has extended its manufacturing offerings in the automation components arena with the takeover of German company Smyczek GmbH & Co. KG, a specialist in printed circuit board assembly.

Smyczek GmbH & Co. KG is the main supplier of specialist printed circuit board assembly components for Beckhoff’s control technology.

The company has a high-tech production facility in Verl, especially for SMT equipment, with over 110 employees and a manufacturing area of 4,500 sq. metres, according to Beckhoff.

Smyczek GmbH & Co. KG manufactures and installs electronic modules and complete units. The range of services covers printed circuit board assembly from the prototype to series production.

“The two Verl-based companies are linked by a long-standing successful cooperation. A large proportion of the printed circuit boards for Beckhoff automation components, from the I/O Bus Terminal to the highly integrated Industrial Motherboard, is manufactured by Smyczek,” said Beckhoff managing director, Hans Beckhoff.

“The integration of Smyczek in the Beckhoff Group is intended to further intensify the cooperation, in order to bring new technologies and products onto the market faster.”
