Advantek, LLC (“Advantek”), a leading provider of highly engineered carrier tape and precision component packaging, today announced the acquisition of LKTT Plastic Technology Sdn. Bhd. (“LETT”), a provider of complementary precision packaging based in Malaysia. The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Advantek is headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and has manufacturing facilities around the world. For more than 40 years, Advantek’s highly engineered specialty packaging tape has enabled the world’s foremost providers of high-value semiconductors and other electronic components to safely transport and present products for assembly, including computers, mobile phones, LED lighting, medical components, smart appliances, automobiles, and other consumer products.
