Southbridge, Massachusetts-based Lavallee Machinery Inc. and Epec LLC in New Bedford, Massachusetts, are joining forces to offer customers a greater range of high-quality services and long-term financial strength.
Epec Engineered Technologies, one of the fastest growing high-technology electronics companies in North America, designs and manufactures products including printed circuit boards, custom battery packs, user interfaces, RF products, cable assemblies, and flexible heaters for global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Lavallee Machinery, founded in 1983, is a trusted manufacturer of time-sensitive, CNC machined parts for OEMs.
Epec currently purchases many different machined parts for RF diplexers and user interfaces that will now be manufactured locally at the Lavallee facility. After integrating all the processes and procedures to work inside Epec’s ISO certification, Epec plans to offer these services to all its customers.
“We have the highest respect and regard for Epec as a successful industry leader, with a proven long-term growth plan that will give our valued customers great support and services,” said Dave Lavallee Sr., president of Lavallee Machinery.
Ed McMahon, CEO of Epec, commented, “We are very excited to welcome Lavallee machinery and their employees into the growing Epec family. Dave and his dedicated team have built a tremendous reputation which seamlessly fits into Epec’s proven manufacturing capabilities, and over 95% first-time-right, quick turn, on-time delivery.
“All of Lavallee’s customers will work long-term with the same sales, customer service, and engineering teams as we expand the manufacturing, inspection, and engineering capabilities at the Southbridge location.”
