Datest, a leading provider of advanced, efficient and mission-critical in-circuit testing, test engineering and X-ray inspection solutions, today announced that it has been awarded a 2018 Circuits Assembly Service Excellence Award (SEA) for its outstanding customer ratings, as judged by its own customers. Datest was selected for the Test Laboratories category.

Circuits Assembly Editor-in-Chief Mike Buetow presented the award to Robert Boguski, Datest’s President, during a Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2018 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO. Mr. Boguski commented about the award, “This is the second time in three years that Datest has won the Service Excellence Award in the Test Laboratories category. It is especially uplifting to know that this year’s award was based on the commendation of a completely different set of customers than our 2016 award. We do our best to make friends and help them out of tight spots in the test engineering and failure analysis sphere. Solving problems keeps customers coming back and recommending new customers. This award validates our efforts.”

An ISO9001- and AS9100-certified company, Datest has been providing the CM/EMS as well as the OEM community with advanced, integrated PCBA testing and inspection services since 1984. The company offers in-circuit testing (ICT) and test development (hardware and software) for all major ICT platforms (Agilent 3070, GenRad, and Teradyne).

Sponsored by Circuits Assembly, the SEAs for Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) providers and electronics assembly suppliers honor companies excelling in the crucial area of customer service. The program, now in its 26th year, functions as a way for participants to see how they compare to peers in customer satisfaction.
