CANTON, S.D. — Legacy Electronics, an ISO 9001:2000 certified contract manufacturer, designer and tester of high-speed, high-density memory modules, printed circuit boards, and other computer products, has begun production at its 40,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Canton, South Dakota.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is being hosted today by the Canton Chamber of Commerce, the Canton Economic Development Corporation and the Lincoln County Economic Development Association. Lieutenant Governor Matt Michels is the keynote speaker for the event.
Jason Engle, Legacy Electronics’ chief executive officer, announced earlier this year that Legacy was expanding to Sioux Falls and moving its sales and administrative offices. In March, the firm chose Canton for its manufacturing operations and in June completed Phase 1 of the move from San Clemente, California, including installation, calibration, and qualification of the Canton electronics component production line.
“Our transition to South Dakota has been very successful,” Engle said. “We’re pleased with the quality of team members we’ve found in the Canton area and are looking forward to ramping up production and adding new employees as our business continues to expand.”
Engle said the company already has openings for manufacturing and test technicians, quality inspectors and rework technicians. Local applicants are requested to send or fax a resume and cover letter to Legacy Electronics Employment, 300 N. Dakota Avenue, Sioux Falls, SD 57104, fax 605-271-4780 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Legacy Electronics is a perfect fit for South Dakota, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have them locate here,” said Lt. Governor Matt Michels, who will represent the Governor at the ribboncutting. “I congratulate Jason and his team for getting Legacy up and running so quickly in Canton. I’m sure the company will find our business climate advantageous to its continued growth.”
Founded in 1993, Legacy Electronics holds several patents and trademarks, including those for its Canopy® chip-stacking process technology, and its Multiple Device Canopy® (MDC®) for embedded computing and high-density VLP (very low profile) modules.
“Legacy Electronics is an excellent addition to the Canton business community,” said Canton Economic Development Corporation president Jon Frick. “A state-of-the-art high technology development like Legacy complements the increasingly diverse blend of corporate and commercial operations in Canton.”
