Creation Technologies was a privately held mid-market electronic circuit board assembler focused on the medium-run, high-complexity, high-growth segment of the market.  Creation provided full turnkey EMS services to manufacturers, including a wide range of technical and manufacturing support services, from design through box-level assembly and testing, repairs, and distribution.

Key Investment Attributes:
  • Leading Tier III EMS provider in a custom design space where margins were higher. 
  • Larger Tier I and Tier II EMS providers were more focused on low-margin, high-volume production where the competitive threat from offshore production was higher.
  • Broad employee share ownership and a management team with shared values and motivations.
