High-tech PCB manufacturer ILFA acquires trade volume from Skytech

ILFA moves into the top 5 independent PCB suppliers in Germany in 2021.

With the acquisition of the PCB trade business form Skytech Europe GmbH, ILFA expands its offering and capacities significantly.

Since 2008 Skytech Europe GmbH is one of the leading German distributors for printed circuit board series. Skytech has been trading PCB very successfully from only 6 carefully selected factories in Asia, due to its focus on highest quality.

Main customer groups are industry, consumer and automotive.

Parallel to the quality promise, delivery reliability has always been a top priority, with > 95% OTD in 2019.

With the acquisition of Skytech Europe´s trading activities including the well experienced staff, being effective November 1st 2020, ILFA will expand their existing business significantly in order to serve all former and new customers on an even higher level.

ILFA is now able to offer printed circuit boards from prototype to mass production for industrial electronics, medicine, aerospace and automotive.

Due to its extensive technical expertise, ILFA will now provide comprehensive advice and deliver PCB as a one stop shop.

At the same time, ILFA has invested more than € 7 million in production equipment and process optimisation in the past 5 years. The investment plan up to 2025 provides further investment in production at the same level.

ILFA, as a company with a private German shareholder base, will continue to grow making it one of the top 5 independent printed circuit board manufacturers in Germany.

This strategically important step for ILFA comes at a time when the domestic printed circuit board industry needs to demonstrate to customers that Germany as a location for printed circuit boards/ basic electronics has a bright future.
