Lantronix relocates its console server
manufacturing to U.S.
Lantronix has announced that manufacturing of its SLC line
of console servers will relocate to the United States. Beginning
January 2012, manufacturing of all 12 SLC models, intended
for the North American market, will move from Penang, Malaysia
to the United States in order to improve responsiveness
to fluctuations in customer demand, shorten lead time and
mitigate rising freight costs.
OnCore Manufacturing Services, will produce the units in
its San Marcos (San Diego County), California facility.
The move to OnCore will make it easier for Lantronix to
source SLC products that comply with the Buy American Act,
which requires that a product manufactured in the U.S. contain
more than 50 percent U.S. parts to be considered 'Made in
USA' for government procurement purposes.
"We're delighted that Lantronix has selected OnCore's
San Marcos site for the manufacture of the SLC units. Our
six North American sites are designed to manage customers'
complex supply-chains while providing them with flexibility
to respond to changes in their business," said Daniel
Perez, President and CEO of OnCore Manufacturing. "All
of our sites are organized to provide customers with very
personalized product manufacturing services which help customers
achieve their product's performance objectives."
Lantronix' SLC console servers provide complete local remote
management solutions for the data center. The SLC product
line provides IT managers with the ability to securely and
remotely manage serial devices, including servers, switches,
routers, telecom equipment, and more, even if the primary
network is down.
"North America is a market of large opportunity for
our SLC product line," said Kurt Busch, President and
CEO, Lantronix. "Moving manufacturing to the U.S. reduces
our operating expenses while furthering our mission of providing
high quality products, delivered quickly and efficiently,
coupled with outstanding customer service -all with the
added benefit of supporting job creation in the U.S."
In a time where many organizations are outsourcing business
components, Lantronix is delighted to say that it maintains
100% its technical support team in-house. The company has
over 85% of its technical support team based in its Irvine,
