PEI-Genesis expands its value-add production line in Asia

01 May 2023

PEI-Genesis, a leader in the design and assembly of custom engineered interconnect solutions, is now certified to value-add ITT Cannon’s D-Subminiature series from its Zhuhai, China, facility. This milestone will allow PEI to rapidly assemble within 48 hours and ship thousands of ITT Cannon D-Sub connectors, including cable-to-cable, PCB and Combo-Ds — mix power and signal layouts, for the growing Asia-Pacific market.

Originally invented by ITT Cannon in the 1950s, D-Subminiature connectors remain one of the market's most widely used ultra-reliable I/O interconnect solutions. ITT Cannon’s D-Subminiature series offers a variety of plating and termini options including signal, high power, coaxial, PC tail, machined, and stampedSource: PEI-GenesisSource: PEI-Genesis and formed contacts for the aerospace, rail, medical and industrial markets.

From custom configurations to streamlined supply chain with a single source for a variety of connectors, PEI’s expansion of the ITT Cannon component inventory and value-add lines gives customers the flexibility to build their own interconnects, bringing more options to the market at a rapid pace. Besides D-Sub connectors, the PEI-Genesis Zhuhai plant can assemble ITT Cannon’s CA-Bayonet, KPT/KPSE, E&R 5015, and VEAM FRCIR circular connector series.

William Wang, APAC General Manager for ITT Cannon, commented on the collaboration with PEI stating, "Our cooperation with PEI-Genesis began 70 years ago. We have continuously complemented each other's strengths throughout our partnership. ITT Cannon has strict requirements for connector production and assembly, and the PEI Zhuhai plant demonstrated its commitment by obtaining AS9100D and ISO9001:2015 certification in 2017. We are pleased to work with PEI to deliver ITT Cannon's high-quality products more conveniently and quickly to users in the Asia-Pacific."

"PEI’s Zhuhai plant boasts sixteen value-add connector product lines to support the 48-hour delivery and faster after-sales service model. We continue to expand our assembly product line in Asia to bring more high-quality products and services through over 100 local employees to the 11 regions in the Asian market, namely, mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, India, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Oceania," said Alex Tsui, vice president and managing director APAC PEI-Genesis.

With this latest addition, the PEI-Genesis Zhuhai plant currently value-adds 16 connector series from a variety of global connector brands, including ITT Cannon, Amphenol, and Souriau by Eaton. PEI-Genesis’ global operations can offer hundreds of thousands of additional configurations worldwide.
