MPIQC FACILITY HISTORY
Established in 2011, as part of the senior management of the already recognized High-End-Quality Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) company, Mr. Claude Girard and Mr. Manuel Gelerman processed a management buyout (MBO) and co-founded MPIQC.
From 1988 to 1992, the 85,000 sq. ft. facility was originally established by a highly regarded Canadian high-tech communications company, to manufacture and test military line-of-sight communication equipment.
In 1992, the facility was converted to a High-End-Quality Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) company.
In 2006, a recognized global communications equipment provider acquired the facility, converting it into a manufacturing cost center for their high-mix products.
In 2011, MPIQC started operating as a dedicated High-End-Quality EMS company, offering value-added services as an OEM Optimizer™ supporting high-mix/low-volume production.
During this time, MPIQC also proudly obtained certifications for its ISO quality standard 9001:2008, The Canadian Controlled Goods Program (CGP) and C-TPAT, and are compliant with the IPC-A-610, J-STD-001, ANSI/ESD-S20.20, REACH & RoHS and SAE AS5553 Counterfeit electronics parts standards, as well as the US Central contractor SAM Registration.
As of 2012, MPIQC started its capital investment process and is continually upgrading to the latest state-of-the-art equipment, starting with pick-and-place Surface Mount Technology (SMT) machines.
In 2015, further continuing its capital investment process; 3D-Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) machines were acquired. In addition, new upgrades were accomplished for the screen printing machines, followed by the in-line reflow ovens.
In 2017, MPIQC proudly received its ISO certification for Medical 13485:2016 manufacturing and obtained its ISO quality standard 9001:2015 certifications, replacing the long-standing ISO quality standard 9001:2008. Furthermore, additional SMT machines were also acquired and added to the facility to support high-mix/low-to-mid volume production.
