Vancouver BC | June 4, 2002

“In order to meet our plans for continued, compound growth, Creation is aggressively targeting strategic U.S. markets,” said Geoff Reed, President and CEO of Creation Technologies. “In today’s economy, tech companies are looking for ways to improve their bottom line, and outsourcing electronics manufacturing can be a real cost-saver. We see the U.S. as an under-serviced market, and we are looking forward to building a thriving presence there.”

Both Langheinrich and Kanick join Creation from Manufacturers’ Services Limited, a top 10 EMS Provider, where they held the same titles. Together, they bring more than 32 years of experience and expertise to the Creation team.

As key drivers for Creation’s U.S. expansion, Langheinrich and Kanick will be responsible for growing the company’s niche customer base in the medium volume, high-complexity contract electronics manufacturing market. The sales directors will also be building and managing a sales representative network in each of these new markets, and will take an active role in identifying potential U.S. acquisition targets.

“Both directors have extensive experience in contract manufacturing, and a solid understanding of customer service relationships,” said David Pettigrew, Vice President of Sales, Creation Technologies. “Their expertise, drive, and commitment go hand-inhand with the values of this company, and will provide the cornerstone of our brand in the growing U.S. market.”
