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.


1977 marks the birth of Advanced Printed Circuit Technology in Santa Clara, CA. In 2008, a group of senior management from Data Circuit Systems acquires APCT and now years later, through acquisition, APCT is now the second largest printed circuit board manufacturer in North America.

APCT Philosophy

Technology is ever-changing. Designs of printed circuit boards continue to become more advanced each day. The APCT business model is simple: Be able to say “Yes” to the customer’s needs of Technology and Lead Time.

The steps were deliberate and painstaking. To tackle technology, the engineering team is challenged 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. Customer’s requirements to beat their competition to market demanded the change. 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.

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.
