Benchmark Electronics Inc is an EMS, ODM, and OEM company[4] based in Angleton, TX in Greater Houston.[5] It provides contract manufacturing services.

History[edit]

Initially a subsidiary of Intermedics, a medical implant manufacturer, Benchmark was sold to Electronic Investors Corporation in 1986.[5]

The company made an IPO in 1990.[5]

In 2007 Benchmark Electronics acquired Pemstar Inc, a contract manufacturer.[5]

Smaller than rivals, including Flextronics and Foxconn, as of 2010 Benchmark may be increasingly seeking to move away from traditional, computing-related EMS products to more-profitable ones like medical devices.[5]

Customers[edit]

Benchmark Electronics's customers have included Sun Microsystems, Medtronic, EMC Corporation,[citation needed] iRobot,[6] and Silicon Graphics.[7]

Products[edit]

While more mundane computing-related products make up the majority of its manufactures as of 2008, the company also makes telecommunications equipment and medical devices.[5]

Production bases and facilities[edit]

Benchmark Electronics has operations in ten countries.[8]

The company has production bases in Almelo, Netherlands;[8] Angleton, TX;[8] Bangkok, Thailand;[8] Brasov, Romania;[8] Campinas, Brazil;[8] Dublin, Ireland;[8] Dunseith, ND;[8] Guadalajara, Mexico;[8] Huntsville, AL;[8] Penang, Malaysia;[9] Nashua, NH;[10] Singapore;[8] and Suzhou, China.[8]
