Welcome to the New Home of Cartel Electronics

A Leading Manufacturer of High Reliability Printed Circuit Boards

As of January 2018, Cartel Electronics was acquired by APCT, a leading manufacturer of rigid printed circuit boards located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, Santa Clara California. APCT wants to assure all loyal Cartel Electronics customers that the People, Service Standards, and Production Capabilities associated with Cartel over the years will continue without interruption and will now become even more robust with the added support of APCT.


APCT, led by their President Steve Robinson, who has over 45 years in the business of circuit board manufacturing, operates under the motto “Say Yes!” Strive to say Yes to the customer’s technology needs and Say Yes to their production lead-time. APCT’s creed has long been the driving force behind our ability to excel and offer a Broad Range of Technology, including Complex High-Density Interconnect Designs and Cycle Times that greatly surpass industry standards.


APCT studied and moved forward with the acquisition of Cartel not only because it gave the company more capacity, but it also gave regional sales and technical support to the entire customer base. An essential contributing factor for the acquisition lied at the core of Cartel Electronics, their people. This partnership came naturally with both companies sharing a special synergy, a mutual business philosophy of putting people first and striving toward continuous improvement of both customer service and production capability.


APCT will continue to move forward with Passion, Commitment, and Trust, providing complex rigid printed circuit boards both domestically & globally. The 140,000 square feet of combined factory space ensures the continuation of saying yes to our customer’s needs of technology and lead time. To our existing customers, welcome back. To our customers-to-be, we can’t wait to get to know you.
