About APCT

APCT is a leading manufacturer of high reliability Printed Circuit Boards. We have produced a business model that has successfully differentiated us from the competition in the printed circuit board industry.



The areas of differentiation in the business model are reflected in the 4 pillars of APCT:

  1. The ability to manufacture a Broad Range of Technologies from Rigid Through-Hole, Advanced HDI, and Flex & Rigid Flex Product.
  2. The offering to deliver all technologies faster than industry standards, and the capability to deliver expedited lead times in World-Class fashion.
  3. Comprehensive Engineering Support given freely to our customers, not only enabling superior execution, but saving both time and money.
  4. Offshore Program Solutions that are completely managed by the APCT Global team from start to finish.



APCT President / CEO, Steve Robinson, has been in the printed circuit board industry since 1971. After years of working as a top executive with a large global manufacturer of PCBs, he found that the culture there did not match his own values and decided to “get back to basics.”

In 2008, he acquired Advanced Printed Circuit Technology and formed the APCT we know today. Through acquisition, APCT is now one of the largest printed circuit board manufacturers in North America.

APCT Philosophy

Technology is ever-changing. Designs of printed circuit boards continue to become more advanced each day. Steve Robinson, President / CEO of APCT has successfully created a business model that tackles the challenges of an ever-changing technology environment. “The model is simple: Be able to say “Yes” to the customer’s needs of Technology and Lead Time.” And over the course of his leadership at APCT, Steve proudly states that, “Ten consecutive years of double-digit growth validates that model.”

The steps were deliberate and painstaking. To tackle technology, Steve challenges his engineering team daily to continue to push the boundaries of advanced technology manufacturing. Through knowledge, experience, and equipment enhancements, APCT is proud to say yes to higher layer counts in Through-Hole Technology; to routinely manufacture High Density Interconnect (HDI) product, and to support Flex and Rigid Flex fabrications.

To support faster builds in all technology categories, new systems were set in place to answer the demand for expedited lead times. “Our customer’s requirements to beat their competition to market demanded the change. Certainly, running 24/7 is a must to offer consistent quick-turn capability, however, the new systems now followed give our customers consistent ‘Availability’ of expedited lead times.”

APCT is now set to execute! No matter the technology, corporate cycle times are now consistently faster than industry standards and premium quick-turn capabilities are World-Class. “The consistent and reliable execution of quick turn orders has earned the trust and loyalty of APCT’s partners,” Steve Robinson…


APCT, “Where Our People Differentiate Us From The Competition.”

The business model is sound, yet the difference maker is our people. Passion, Commitment and Trust are the characteristics that set APCT apart from our competition. With a corporate culture of Continuous Improvement; “Best in Class” Service, and detailed Engineering Support, our reputation for passion, commitment, and trust precedes us locally and throughout the world. Our Passion for what we do is necessary to deliver ultimate customer satisfaction.
