July 1, 2013. Effective Immediately, Dynamic Test Solutions (DTS), a Singapore private limited company, and MC Test Products Inc., a California corporation, have merged to better serve their combined global customer base. Both companies design and fabricate ATE test hardware including load boards, characterization boards, probe-card PCBs, interfaces, and turnkey solutions.
Todd Schnack, president of DTS, reports that this merger will accelerate the DTS expansion plans into Silicon Valley, where Howard Spinner, president of MC Test, has been headquartered since 1984. Mr. Spinner is looking forward to utilizing the incremental design capacity of DTS, as well as leveraging the DTS international presence to better service the global customer base. Howard states that many of the local MC Test customers have established manufacturing and engineering sites in Asia, and DTS, having a strong Asian presence, would significantly benefit the existing MC Test customer base. Both Spinner and Schnack will be based in the Silicon Valley facility, along with local sales, applications engineering, design, assembly and support staff.
Both the DTS and MC Test brand names will coexist for the foreseeable future, in an effort to make the transition seamless for all customers. Mr. Schnack, with 30 years of experience in the probe card and load board business with companies such as Probe Technology, will continue as president of the merged Company. Mr. Spinner, with 28 years experience in the same business, will shift his primary role to vice president of engineering.
The address of the Silicon Valley facility will continue to be 3150 Almaden Expressway, Suite 250, San Jose, CA 95118.
