FTG Renews Buried Capacitance License Agreement with Hadco Santa Clara Inc.

Firan Technology Group Corporation (“FTG”) announced today that it has renewed a license agreement with Hadco Santa Clara, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanmina-SCI Corporation, for use of Buried Capacitance® material in advanced printed circuit board designs.

FTG”s facilities in Toronto, Canada and Chatsworth, California are both licensed to build Buried Capacitance® product under this agreement.

“This license is part of FTG”s commitment to invest in technologies that are important to our customers”, commented Brad Bourne, President and CEO, FTG Corporation.

We have seen demand for this technology from a number of leading Aerospace and Defense customers and we are one of only a few suppliers able to support this need.”
